John Dramani Mahama on the Lost Decades of Africa

John Dramani Mahama, Vice President of Ghana, tells of coming-of-age in Ghana during the difficult post-independence years. In My First Coup d'Etat: And Other True Stories from the Lost Decades of Africa he shares personal stories that work as fables, history, cultural and political analyses, and as memoir of a young man who would grow up to be vice president of his nation.
