A fragile alliance: the Congo crisis and Soviet-Ghanaian relations 1960-61
Sergey Mazov, pages -

Abstract

When Kwame Nkrumah published one of the first comprehensive accounts of the Congolese crisis, he portrayed himself as an advocate of African liberation, who had firmly and consistently pursued the line on Africanising the settlement of the crisis, supported left Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba as much as he could, and sought to rid the Congo of ‘external pressure’. Until recently, this interpretation has largely determined assessments of Ghana’s role in the Congolese crisis. This article puts forward a different assessment of events.
