3.0 von 5 Sternen Very good beginning.
This book provides a very rich beginning for historians and archaeologists alike. While Diop provides ample evidance for the "Black Egyptian" case, some of his arguments seem as racially biased as the ones he tries to refudiate. This should not prevent the reader from apricating what Diop is attempting to accomplish, and what we all should work for: a true...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic......., 29. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality (Taschenbuch)
It is a shame that anyone who whould give this book a low rating would refer to themselves as "a reader from...." Evidence that they haven't even seen the COVER of this book comes shining through. The main topic of this book is to show that Aficans played vital parts in the history of man from the most remote times. The Egyptians were African. Black African. Even European and Middle Eastern Egyptologists could/can not prove otherwise. Refer to the 2nd volume of The General History of Africa. Diop puts forth in the Symposium on the Origin of the Ancient Egyptians the same arguments presented in this book. Any argument opposing his own, Diop dealt with as objectively as possible. Considering he was African and that African history has been distorted the way it has, I can understand the fire and emotion with which Diop writes. It's to be expected. But in the final synopsis, it's not the emotion, but how well documented and researched his arguments are. Read the end notes and the bibliography. Mostly all his references are European Historians and Egyptologists who are hardly known in academic circles because of their beliefs. Diop even leaves an anthropological glossary and biographical sketches on the authors he cites. Hardly a stone is left uncovered. One should actually READ this book before trying to write a review on it. What Diop says is true and is gaining more acceptence everyday, and there's two things that can be done about it: 1. Nothing, 2. Like it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent introduction to African history., 31. März 2000

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality (Taschenbuch)
It is to be expected that refutations to the fact of Black Egpyt would be forthcoming regarding this magnificent work. Cheikh Diop illustrates through ample amounts of evidence that the Egpytians of old were Black. The name Egpyt, as Diop points out, is not even African; it's Greek (Aegpyptus-the Twin Lands).
I don't expect those with a vested interest in maintaing the premise of Western civilization evolving in Greece to appreciate the information in this book, in fact I'm glad they don't. The very fact that they're upset with Diop's arguments for a Black Egypt means that he's right.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Black Egypt Is No Myth, 21. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality (Taschenbuch)
I am Indian-American (originally from India) and a Christianwith a B.A. in Theology/Biology, and I can tell you honestly that Diopis quite factual in supporting his thesis that the ancient Egyptians were, indeed, Black (Negro). There are, however, some things Diop says that I am in disagreement with, but his thesis that ancient Egypt was Black is as accurate as saying the earth revolves around the sun.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simply the best book on ancient African civilization., 29. Mai 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality (Taschenbuch)
This book focuses on ancient Egypt. Diop refutes the theses of those Egyptologists who declare that the ancient Egyptians were anything other than Black. Diop uses an abundance of information to present his case: the phenotypical characteristics of Egyptian statues and paintings, the amount of melanin found in the dermis of Egyptian mummies, the testimony of ancient scholars (Herodotus, Diodorus, and Strabo), and the fact that the ancient Egyptians were culturally and linguistically African. Diop makes the arguments of early prominent Egyptologists like Champollion-Figeac seem utterly ludicrous.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Most Excellent Book on African and World History, 26. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality (Taschenbuch)
This book has changed forever the way history is written and will be without question the catalyst that enlightens African Americans on their remarkable birthright of ancient and modern civilizations. African Origins Myth or Reality completely dispels the lies that are even to this day being taught on all levels of education. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in the truth!

5.0 von 5 Sternen critical analysis of African history, 16. Mai 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality (Taschenbuch)
This book by Diop is very critical and convincing in its arguments. I personally still cannot understand how people can be confused as to the identity of many of the pharaohs: by simply looking at their statues, I see blacks, even without colour. When I first analyzed the identity of the ancient Kemets (Egyptians), I started by looking at their statutes and busts, and I can see mostly black features in them. I am just being honest with myself and everyone! In fact some of them look like my African friends! Diop argues that the Egyptian civilization was initiated by a Black race and sustained by it. This race, was probably from the land of Kush, as he argues. He deals with everything, starting from the identity of the mummies, the "red" complexion, the relationship of Egypt with its neighbours, etc. And als, if they were Black, what happened to them. He does not only present his argument, but also deals with other people's counterarguments, and trust me, there are so many unbelievable self-contradictions in many of these so-called Egyptologists or historians propositions/arguments: they argue that Egypt was anything but black. There are just certain things in life you cannot hide forever, especially if they do not belong to you, and never belonged to you, and if they will never belong to you! Any objective book that corrects the injustices of the past, especially African history, for me, deserves 5 stars.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Revisionism of the PAST to build "self esteem" TODAY., 15. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality (Taschenbuch)
This revisionism belies the facts of HISTORY. How can we go forth in History when we are too busy revising this false and grand "past"? So much to be proud of and we have these revisionists, who differ Not from those White racist revisionists and "Holocaust" revisionists, bullcrapping their way into our minds. To hear the revisionists, Black and African blood is in every Accomplishment (but, hmmm, never in the historical disasters). If so, it seems that the African/ Blacks have been solely responsible for the dire straits that Blacks and Africans find themselves in TODAY. We are so busy rewriting the past, crying "I am a VICTIM!" in the present, and telling everyone (Europeans, Euro-Americans, Asians, Asian-Americans, Semitic, etc., etc.,) they "OWE US" for the future. Is it any wonder why we Africans appear at the lower stratas EVERY where else in the world, including Latin America, Europe, Asia, and including our own CONTINENT of Africa!!! yes, in Kenya, Uganda, etc., it is non-Africans who comprise the top stratas of society, from education, social, economic, etc...
