This is the first full-length biography of George James Christian. Originally from Dominica, Christian qualified as a barrister-at-law in London, participated in the first pan-African conference and migrated to the Gold Coast in 1902 where he established his home and a complex extended family. He ensured that his children were well educated and they followed his tradition of service to the community. Shortly after his arrival in the Gold Coast, he established a legal practice that successfully served a wide range of clients. His friendship with the renowned Dr James K. Aggrey, as expressed in their correspondence during the establishment of Achimota College, together with a discussion of the experience of Christian's children as staff and students there, provide fresh data on this important Ghanaian institution. The book also sheds light on Christian's service in the Legislative Council, his role as honorary consul for Liberia, his involvement as a Freemason, businessman and philanthropist.
