THE AFRICAN ORIGIN OF CIVILIZATION - Cheikh Anta Diop

$18.65

THE AFRICAN ORIGIN OF CIVILIZATION : MYTH OR REALITY by Cheikh Anta Diop

Edited and translated by Mercer Cook.

Layman and scholars alike will welcome the publication of this one-volume translation of the major sections of C.A. Diop's two books, 'Nations negres et culture and Anterioriteádes civilizations negres,' which have profoundly influenced thinking about Africa around the world. It was largely because of these works that, at the World Festival of the Arts held in Dakar in 1966, Dr. Diop shared with the late W.E.B. Dubois an award as the writer who had exerted the greatest influence on Negro thought in the 20th century.

áTHE AFRICAN ORIGIN ORIGIN OF CIVILIZATION: Myth or Reality,edited and translated by Mercer Cook and prepared with the author's cooperation, presents Dr. Diop's main thesis - that historical,archeological and anthropological evidence supports the theory that the civilization of ancient Egypt,the first that history records, was actually Negroid in origin.

áThe present volume contains over fifty illustrations, many of them newly selected for this book, which further document Dr. Diop's theories. The author has written a new preface and conclusion for this edition, which also includes a preface by Mercer Cook, an index, bibliography, biographical notes on the authors and authorities cited, and glossary of archaeological terms used in the book.



CHEIKH ANTA DIOP is director of the radiocarbon laboratory at I.F.A.N. (I nstitut Fondamental d'Afrique Noire) at the University of Dakar.

MERCER COOK is Professor Emeritus from Howard University.
