"We are indeed blessed to have Eze's wide-ranging and magnificent anthology. It brings together some of the most stimulating texts of African, African-American, Afro-Caribbean, and Black European philosophy. Its ambitious effort will serve well all those interested in African studies and students and specialists of philosophy in general." V. Y. Mudimbe, Stanford University
From the Back Cover
The texts collected here also have enormous historical range: from traditional to modern, pre-colonial through colonial to post-colonial; and from the slave period through emancipation and the Civil Rights movements to the postmodern. In so doing, they represent a variety of cultural and ideological viewpoints, including secular, feminist, Christian, Islamic, and animist perspectives.
The volume will be useful for all those in gender and race theory as well as cultural, post-colonial, and black studies.
