From the Publisher: Edited and translated by Mercer Cook. Laymen 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 Anteriorite des 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.

The cultural unity of Black Africa : the domains of patriarchy and of matriarchy in classical antiquity by Cheikh Anta Diop ( Book )
3 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Cultural Unity of Black Africa is a profound contribution to the universal store of knowledge in that it situates the geographical and cultural origins of patriarchy and matriarchy in Europe and Africa respectively, and shows that social systems evolve out of specific climatic and environmental factors. These proclivities predispose the inhabitants of both zones towards a particular world-view and thus meaningful conflict. Diop also demonstrates the extensive influence of ancient Egypt on classical Greece in terms of literature, science and philosophy." -- Publisher's description
