This volume represents a new departure in the examination of Egypt's place in the African context. It brings together the latest research of the 1980s on Nile Valley civilizations, what they achieved, and their impact on Africa and the world. The authors take an "Afrocentric" in contrast to a "Eurocentric" perspective in their studies of the birthplace of civilization. This volume includes sections on the race and origin of the ancient Egyptians, black dynasties and rulers, Egyptian science and philosophy, and great Egyptologists. It sheds new light on neglected aspects of history.

Ivan Van Sertima is professor of African studies, Rutgers University, and editor of the Journal of African Civilizations. He is the author of They Came Before Columbus: The African Presence in Ancient America, winner of the Clarence L. Holte International Prize.

A Gold Standard of Photo Kametology
Dr. V has done a masterful job of recording a photo who's who of Classical African Civilization, Kemet (Ancient Egypt/Nubia). It was adapted in our town's High
school (Teaneck, N.J.) as the standard text to teach Ancient Egyptian by the scholars assigned to this task. Egypt Revisited, and Dr. V's world renowned, They Came Before Columbus, are the recipient of the Cultural Health Award.

In this book i still find no relevant association between african philosophy as a whole and what Dr theophile Obenga actually narates here is bases mostly on egypthian philosophy and not associating egypt with the rest of africa on the basis of knowing if egypt is a part of africa philosophically and there been no incidented or foreign particles surounding the evidence of him colluding egpty with africa, also i affirm that egypt has been in existence prior to existence but i still need him to convince me that egypt is a part of africa for him to ascribing egypt as part of ancient Africa
