Description

Bernal, Martin . Black Athena: The Afroasiatic Roots of Classical Civilization; Volume I: The Fabrication of Ancient Greece 1785-1985. New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, 1989. ISBN: 9780813512778. pp. xxxiii, 736. 8vo. Black and white maps, charts, illustrations. Appears unread; fine. “In one of the most audacious works of scholarship ever written, Martin Bernal challenges the whole basis of our thinking about this question. Classical civilization, he argues, has deep roots in Afroasiatic cultures. But these Afroasiatic influences have been systematically ignored, denied, or supressed since the eighteenth century–chiefly for racist reasons.” Softcover. (#628) $24.00
