The tension in West Africa is high. Certain radical groups are forming causing great trouble and fear. Not less the terror organization Boko Haram! The famous Ghanaian journalist Kweku Bentum suddenly finds himself in the middle of his worst nightmare. The future of Ghana is at stake – but more than that, the future of the whole of West Africa is at stake if things get out of control. Kweku Bentum must take action to stop genocide and other forms of terror to overtake the region. Luckily he gets good help from his journalistic ́informer ́ Kanimu, a rastaman who normally likes to live life easy, free and without trouble. Accra, the capital of Ghana, West Africa is the setting for this fast moving drama. But you dont have to know a thing about Ghana or even Africa to feel the shivers on your spine as the story moves on. It could be anywhere in the world. You could be the one who have to take action. The question is: Who do you have on your side? Who is willing to help when problems really starts to evolve?

When the 2007 recession came, it hit the housing market hard and Juans world tumbled. Frustration and despair led those around him to seek comfort in the fleeting passion of forbidden love.

Dionne Brand powerfully delves into uncharted aspects of urban life, the bittersweetness of youth, and secrets families try to hide. Tuyen is an aspiring artist and the daughter of Vietnamese parents who've never recovered from losing one of their children while in the rush to flee Vietnam in the 1970s. She rejects her immigrant family's hard-won lifestyle, and instead lives in a rundown apartment with friends—each of whom is grappling with their own familial complexities and heartache. In turns thrilling and heartbreaking, Tuyen's lost brother—who has since become a criminal in the Thai underworld—journeys to Toronto to find his long-lost family. As Quy's arrival nears, tensions build, friendships are tested, and an unexpected encounter will forever alter the lives of Tuyen and her friends. Gripping at times, heartrending at others, What We All Long For is an ode to a generation of longing and identity, and to the rhythms and pulses of a city and its burgeoning, questioning youth.

In 1992 Ineke Bosman founded the PCC-Hand in Hand Community with three other Ghanaians. This is an inter-religious community that gives shelter and rehabilitation to abandoned and mentally handicapped children in Ghana. "I was moved by the plight of the mentally handicapped children who were abandoned and had nowhere to stay, literally nowhere. By 1992 I started to take some in my home and later this grew into the community as it is now, in the year 2006: a large and beautiful village in Nkoranza where 41 mentally handicapped children find a home and where 15 other youngsters find a new life by learning skills in the sheltered workshop."" In the past few years Ineke Bosman has written down stories of Ghanaian emigrants. Looking for a way out of poverty, Libye, Europe, calls to them. Some are stories of success, but there are also stories of failures.

What Are We After On This Earth

This is an engaging and absorbing story of faith and perseverance, showing how the Ghanaian writer was led by providence through his convoluted and troublesome journey that took him through various West African countries and the Middle East to his present home in Belgium. A keen observer of human suffering and vanity, he frequently asks the question: "What are we after on this earth?" What, indeed, is the whole point of existence, and what does all our striving after materialism, wealth and security amount to? The frequent biblical quotations show how the hand of God was always upon the author, protecting him from the wiles of Satan.

The author attended university in Switzerland. When he arrived in Geneva, he met students from many countries: Egypt, Iran, Tunisia, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Liberia, the Gold Coast (Ghana), Mali, Nigeria, etc. He was the only student at the time who was born and raised in Accra when the Gold Coast gained its independence so his friends gave him the nickname Accra Man, hence the title of the book. The book Accra Man is an extraordinary account of a determined man who went through a lot of suffering to reach and surpass his goal. Most people would have given up when his trusted friends abandoned him in Paris, France, or when he finally graduated and became a doctor. Instead he got the courage to press on to get postgraduate qualifications in France, Switzerland, the United States of America, and Canada—eleven in all. It is a landmark work of social and cultural history. He avoids the brownnosers, those who praise you in your presence but speak ill of you behind your back. Omaboe admits that giving in to despair would have been easy. Instead he chose a personal voyage of discovery in an effort to get to the bottom of things. It requires more than courage and confidence in oneself to politely turn down an offer to join the teaching staff of a world-class medical school to enter the darkness of the unknown and succeed. He believes that anyone who puts himself in his world and thinks life is easy has never really lived.

Is Africa now being re-colonized by the upcoming powerful nations? Can we afford to stand by? Or is it already too late? Cass Cassidy has travelled, worked and lived in Africa and discovered the contrasting ways of everyday life, with very different values put even on life itself. When Cassidy lived there, African states had been de-colonized for a decade or two. Unfortunately, by removing himself from affairs, the colonist had inadvertently created a power vacuum. The arbitrator had gone and there was nothing in the arsenal to replace it. The boundaries and borders had been changed, so the power struggle in the form of tribalism began and continues to this day many years after independence. This book is a first-hand account of just what this has meant to the average African who has been sadly let down as dreams of independence are shattered time and time again.

This drama trilogy shows the story of the Calypso art form over four decades of social and artistic change, 1930-1970. Sing de Chorus, the first in the series, recreates the conditions and conflicts that made the 1930s the classical era of the Calypso and placed the art on the international stage. Ah Wanna Fall is built around the Absurdist genius of Spoiler, who characterized the transitions of post-war Trinidad. Ten to One crowns the series with the triumphant rise of Sparrow in his struggle for social respect for the art and its performers.
