Abstract

On 6 March 2022, Ghana celebrated 65 years of independence. Originally published in 1977, in Nkrumah and the Ghana Revolution, C. L. R. James tells the history of the socialist revolution led by Kwame Nkrumah, the first president and prime minister of Ghana. In this edited excerpt from her Introduction to Duke University Press’s new edition, editor Leslie James argues that James was not simply writing a history of the transition to political independence in Ghana, but an account of Africa’s contribution to revolutionary theory that showcased James’s global thinking at work.
