The African origin of civilization: myth or reality by Cheikh Anta Diop( Book )

79 editions published between 1954 and 2011 in French and English and held by 1,594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. DuBois an award as the writer who had exerted the greatest influence on Negro thought in the 20th century

The cultural unity of Black Africa : the domains of patriarchy and of matriarchy in classical antiquity by Cheikh Anta Diop( Book )

47 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 764 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
