This book examines how Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first post-colonial political leader legitimized his rule. It argues that Nkrumah found in religion a way to weld ethnicnically diverse groups with primordial attachments together. Through his employment he was able to spearhead the building of a nation he named Ghana.

Western academic scholarship is packaged in the rich, proverbial language of the local Ghanaian context.--CHOICE
