Setting out the case for the total liberation and unification of Africa, Africa Must Unite is essential reading for anyone interested in world socio-economic developmental processes.

In 1963, when Africa Must Unite was first published, critics said that Kwame Nkrumah was pursuing a 'policy of the impossible', yet today very few doubt his statesmanship.

Increasing turmoil through the succession of reactionary military coups and the outbreak of needless civil wars in Africa prove conclusively that only unification can provide a realistic solution for Africa's political and economic problems.

In the words of Nkrumah

"To suggest that the time is not yet ripe for considering a political union of Africa is to evade facts and ignore realities in Africa today. Here is a challenge which destiny has thrown... to the leaders of Africa".
