AUTHOR:BASIL DAVIDSONISBN#: 1-84212-246-0

‘The best work now available to the general public
on the main outlines of the

prestigious past of the African continent’
Prior
to the original publication of Africa in History, Africa’s past, including
its art and literature, had been measured by the European concept of
‘civilization’. – Basil Davidson changed all that with this landmark

of Africa and its world-wide significance, the internal dynamic of its
old civilizations and their links with Asia, Europe and America, as
well as the development of specific areas, tribes and cultures.

 


TITLE: FORCED LABOR in the GOLD & COPPER MINES……..
A History of Congo under Belgian Rule, 1910-1945… vol 1
AUTHOR:JULES MARCHALISBN#: 2-911928-07-5

PRICE: $31.95 

In the shift form the nineteenth
century to the twentieth, Belgium’s King Leopold 11,
behind a screen of humanitarian pity, crushed the Congolese
people under a violent regime of slave labor that impoverished Africa while enriching Europe.
Conventional
wisdom has since held that in 1908, the transfer from
Leopold to the state of Belgium made Congo a “normal colony,”
ending the profitable regime of atrocities. This book reveals a starkly
different truth: Belgian colonial rule brought on respite from Leopold’s
killing fields.
In purpose, structure and method, the system
remained unchanged. Perfecting the pillage of African resources, it
institutionalized political violence, liquidated resisters, and nurtured,
through systematic corruption, a “leadership” of African collaborators
trained to enrich European corporations by destroying Africa.

was dismissive, racist: no. Today, a major intellectual shift is under
way. New African scholarship, grounded in accurate multidisciplinary research
and first-hand expertise in Egyptian, contemporary African
languages, Greek
and Latin,
has unearthed oral
and written data clarifying Africa’s history, philosophy, literature and
culture from the upheavals of today all the way back to the beginnings
of human society in the Great
Lakes region of Central Africa, East Africa, Ethiopia, Nubia and Egypt

Count C. Volney, the noted French historical researcher, says, “A people now forgotten, discovered, while others were yet barbarians, the elements of the arts and science. A race of man, now rejected from society for their sable skin and frizzled hair, founded on the study of the laws of nature those civil and religious systems which still govern the Universe.”

THE
ELOQUENCE of the SCRIBES
AUTHOR:AYI KWEI ARMAHISBN#: 2-911928-09-1

PRICE: $21.95

This memoir on the ancient sources and future resource of African Literature, by the author of Two Thousand Seasons, KMT and other novels, gives colonial Africa’s Literary heritage a clean burial. Citing new evidence on oral and written traditions, it shows that Africa’s old oral culture, antedating the pyramids, was the matrix from which emerged the hieroglyphic literature of ancient Egypt. Armah argues that the traditions of ancient Egypt and feudal Africa, sharing numerous myths, narratives, symbols and words, constitute ancestral treasury of concepts and images, a profound source of artistic inspiration andorganizational ideas for writers and intellectuals ready to work for an
African future.
