The Destruction of Black Civilization took Chancellor Williams sixteen years of research and field study to compile. The book, which was to serve as a reinterpretation of the history of the African race, was intended to be ""a general rebellion against the subtle message from even the most 'liberal' white authors (and their Negro disciples): 'You belong to a race of nobodies. You have no worthwhile history to point to with pride.'"" The book was written at a time when many black students, educators, and scholars were starting to piece together the connection between the way their history was taught and the way they were perceived by others and by themselves. They began to question assumptions made about their history and took it upon themselves to create a new body of historical research. The book is premised on the question: ""If the Blacks were among the very first builders of civilization and their land the birthplace of civilization, what has happened to them that has left them since then, at the bottom of world society, precisely what happened? The Caucasian answer is simple and well-known: The Blacks have always been at the bottom."" Williams instead contends that many elements--nature, imperialism, and stolen legacies-- have aided in the destruction of the black civilization. The Destruction of Black Civilization is revelatory and revolutionary because it offers a new approach to the research, teaching, and study of African history by shifting the main focus from the history of Arabs and Europeans in Africa to the Africans themselves, offering instead ""a history of blacks that is a history of blacks. Because only from history can we learn what our strengths were and, especially, in what particular aspect we are weak and vulnerable. Our history can then become at once the foundation and guiding light for united efforts in serious[ly] planning what we should be about now."" It was part of the evolution of the black revolution that took place in the 1970s, as the focus shifted from politics to matters of the mind.

Chinua Achebe - seine Essays zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch ›Mein Vater und ich‹, ›Meine Töchter‹ - in 17 persönlichen, polemischen und politischen Essays betrachtet Chinua Achebe den Bogen seines Lebens. Kein Autor hat die Signatur, mit der ihn Afrika prägte, so deutlich beschrieben, analysiert und um seine Anerkennung gekämpft wie Achebe. In dem zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch vorliegenden Band erzählt er von seiner Kindheit, seiner Herkunft und seinem Erbe: von dem Kind in Nigeria bis zu dem Verkehrsunfall, der ihn über zwanzig Jahre an den Rollstuhl fesselte. »Ohne das Werk von Chinua Achebe wäre die afrikanische Literatur überhaupt nicht vorstellbar. Seine Leidenschaft, sein scharfer Geist, seine glasklare Prosa sind unübertrefflich.« Toni Morrison

Von der Altsteinzeit bis zur Spätantike reicht das große Panorama, das im ersten Band der Geschichte der Welt entworfen wird – eine grandiose Darstellung von mehr als 2,7 Millionen Jahren Kultur- und Ereignisgeschichte der Menschheit. Sie reicht von den Anfängen der Menschwerdung über den Beginn des Ackerbaus, das Aufblühen der frühen Hochkulturen bis zur Epoche der griechisch-römischen Welt und dem Ende der Gupta-Zeit in Indien, dem Niedergang der Sui-Dynastie in China und dem Aufkommen des Islam. Dieser Band über ferne Zeiten und alte Kulturen der Menschheit liefert den Schlüssel zum Verständnis auch jüngerer Epochen, wurden sie doch nachhaltig von Kulturen geprägt, die bereits untergegangen waren, lange bevor die Schrift erfunden wurde. Die meisterhafte Beschreibung der frühen Zivilisationen erhellt gleichermaßen das schriftlose Dunkel der Frühgeschichte wie den kulturellen Reichtum des Alten Orients, Ägyptens und der Klassischen Antike, aber auch der indischen und ostasiatischen Staatenwelt. Alle Beiträge sind großzügig mit Karten, Plänen, Abbildungen und Zeittafeln ausgestattet. Mit Beiträgen von Hans-Joachim Gehrke, Mark Edward Lewis (übersetzt von Andreas Wirthensohn), Axel Michaels, Hermann Parzinger und Karen Radner

Patrick Manning refuses to divide the African diaspora into the experiences of separate regions and nations. Instead, he follows the multiple routes that brought Africans and people of African descent into contact with one another and with Europe, Asia, and the Americas. In weaving these stories together, Manning shows how the waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Indian Ocean fueled dynamic interactions among black communities and cultures and how these patterns resembled those of a number of connected diasporas concurrently taking shape across the globe. Manning begins in 1400 and traces five central themes: the connections that enabled Africans to mutually identify and hold together as a global community; discourses on race; changes in economic circumstance; the character of family life; and the evolution of popular culture. His approach reveals links among seemingly disparate worlds. In the mid-nineteenth century, for example, slavery came under attack in North America, South America, southern Africa, West Africa, the Ottoman Empire, and India, with former slaves rising to positions of political prominence. Yet at the beginning of the twentieth century, the near-elimination of slavery brought new forms of discrimination that removed almost all blacks from government for half a century. Manning underscores the profound influence that the African diaspora had on world history, demonstrating the inextricable link between black migration and the rise of modernity, especially in regards to the processes of industrialization and urbanization. A remarkably inclusive and far-reaching work, The African Diaspora proves that the advent of modernity cannot be imaginatively or comprehensively engaged without taking the African peoples and the African continent as a whole into account.

In this meditation, respected Ugandan academic Dani Wadada Nabudere traces the roots of the global economic crisis and warns of the threat that the decline of Western nations poses to the African continent—the final frontier for those in search of new lands and resources to exploit. As a deterrent to what he sees as the encroachment of super-profiteers looking to Africa for the land to increase their profits in industrial agriculture, Nabudere advocates for what he terms “community sites of knowledge,” that is, the use of indigenous tools and knowledge to revitalize the lives of Africa’s people. The book puts forth the belief that any dependence on imported knowledge and material instruments will only lead to the entrenchment of colonial stereotypes, and that indigenous knowledge is imbued with the roots of “complex ecosystems” that require the inputs of a diversity of expertise and experiences and that are capable of producing the knowledge necessary for the residents of the African continent to reclaim the future.
