Kwame Nkrumah: The Last Stage of Imperialism


Neo-Colonialism, the Last Stage of Imperialism (1965)
The mechanisms of neo-colonialism
Kwame Nkrumah:
"In order to halt foreign interference in the affairs of developing countries it is necessary to study, understand, expose and actively combat neo-colonialism in whatever guise it may appear.
"For the methods of neo-colonialists are subtle and varied.
"They operate not only in the economic field, but also in the political, religious, ideological and cultural spheres.
"Faced with the militant peoples of the ex-colonial territories in Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and Latin America, imperialism simply switches tactics."
