I purchased mine as a secondhand copy. I was interested in its contents rather than having a pristine one, so saved some money :-) The downside to this work of revered historian, anthropologist, physicist, and politician, known as Dr Cheikh Anta Diop , is how gripping it is, and how fast I read through this book, soon realising 20 odd pages add past on a bus trip! The book gives a rich glimpse into African social systems unknown to Westerners. Giving a richer understanding than the usually heavily biased rubbish those of us had been wrongly made to swallow in European schools. Highly recommended to all but more so for those of African descent!
