This thesis is a study of the Opposition in Ghana. However, the principal figure, always in mind, although perhaps not always mentioned, is Kwame Nkrumah. Kwame Nkrumah has intrigued and impressed me for as long as I have been interested in African affairs. This was the most important reason I had for choosing Ghana as my foreign study center last year. This thesis is my response to what I consider the unfair and uncritical treatment Nkrumah has received, especially since his overthrow in 1966. Now that Nkrumah is gone, perhaps it will be possible for students, of Ghanaian history to revise the existing treatments of Nkrumah and to gain a better understanding of Nkrumah's role in the liberation of both Ghana and Africa.
