This is the story of Joe Appiah's life, his country, and his continent--the memoirs of an African patriot living through one of the most extraordinary periods in Ghanian history. Appiah writes from his own personal perspective--that of an Ashanti aristocrat, heir to a leading Ashanti capitalist, a devout methodist. Born in 1918, Appiah actively engaged in politics from colonial domination, independence in 1957, and for the next 25 years of unrest. He left politics in 1979 having suffered imprisonments and intimidations at the hands of those he helped free from colonial rule. He died in 1990.
