This work analyzes the problems of stability in Ghana over the period 1957-1992. During that time Ghana experienced five coups d'etat, eightsubsequent governments (including five military regimes and three civilian administrations), and many abrupt shifts in social and economic policy. From the unique perspective of a Second Secretary of the Russian Foreign Service, Youry Petchenkine considers such subjects as the role of the army, the structure of Ghanaian society, forms of state power organization, the struggle for political power, and ethnic and religious factors in politics. He suggests that political stability based upon democratic forms is a prerequisite for social and economic progress.

This unique work will be a valuable resource for researchers and students interested in problems of political, social, and economic stability in Africa.
