Reviews for Civilization or Barbarism: An Authentic Anthropology
No rating provided
Diop offers a Critical challenge to orthodox scholarship's interpretation of Egypt as a White civilization, which arose during the nineteenth century to reinforce European racism and imperialism. Amassing evidence from the linguistic to the archaeological, from the historical to the philosophical, he demonstrates that Egypt was a Black civilization and that Blacks are the rightful heirs to Egypt's proud legacy. Moreover, he shows through superbly detailed documentation that Greek civilization, long revered as the birthplace of Western thought, owes a substantial debt to Egyptian ideas and accomplishments.Dr. Leonard Jefferies, Jr.,Professor of Africana Studies, City College of New Yorkread more
