Written as an introspective autobiography, Mensah’s book uses his life experience as support for his suggestions to diplomatic policy.

Telling his life story and offering ideas for changes to diplomatic governance, the new book by Sylvester A. Mensah, “In the Shadows of Politics: Reflections from My Mirror” (published by AuthorHouse), is an in-depth look at the political system in Ghana.

“In this book I invite my readers to walk with me through my half-century of life – a 50-year journey into history as reflected in my mirror,” Mensah says. “(It is) a journey of social and political antecedents, of untold history of current relevance, of the perpetual, cyclical frowns and smiles that active life presents … a stock of life taken with unembellished truth and absolute honesty.”

Mensah says his book offers thoughtful perspectives and recommendations designed to help managers of major political parties in their efforts to grapple with the complex challenges of governance, as well as inner-party, democratic tendencies.
