Description

This work shines light on several icons of African thought, who are usually quoted more than they are read. By drawing from sources as diverse as Cabral and Wiredu, he has given a powerful tool to researchers, and has made it possible for students to learn what thinkers have said, not just what critics feel. This is a unique anthology, and would be a great starting point for any serious work on thought by Africans or people of African descent. This work is not burdened with much contextual analysis of the works, and this reveals the power in many of these works. Several of these authors are deceased or available only after critical analysis, and it is valuable to read their own words . A long read, but one that warrants time and attention. A phenomenal work.
