Stolen Legacy: with Illustrations
George G. M. James (A)
List Price: $11.99 (Paperback - Ancient Egyptian History / Greek History / Arts and Sciences / Acknowledgement - 2010)
Description: In this Illustrated Edition of the book, Dr. James seeks to prove, among others things, that the Ancient Greeks were not the original authors of Greek philosophy, was mainly based on ideas and concepts that were borrowed without acknowledgment, and indeed stolen, from the ancient Egyptians. Greek philosophy is somewhat of a drama, whose chief actors were Alexander the Great, Aristotle and his successors in the peripatetic school, and the Emperor Justinian. Alexander invaded Egypt and captured the Royal Library at Alexandria and plundered it. Aristotle made a library at Alexandria and plundered books, while his school occupied the building and used it as a research center. Finally, Justinian, the Roman Emperor, abolished the Temples and schools of philosophy, i.e., another name for the Egyptian Mysteries, which the Greeks claimed as their product, and on account of which, they have been falsely praised and honored for centuries by the world, as its greatest philosophers and thinkers. This contribution to civilization was really and truly made by the Egyptians and the African continent, but not by the Greeks and the European continent. This Classic book is a must have for all who seek to learn more about Ancient Cultures from around the World including Moorish, Greek, Egyptian, and Rome. James uncovers the true historical origins of man and how the knowledge and wisdom of the ancients paved the way to establish several systems of learning that is still in use today. (168 pgs)
Ashay says, Stolen Legacy is a classic and it is on my list to read. First pubished in 1954, by George G. M. James, it is a truth telling books that sent a light beam around the world on the origins of ancient knowledge and wisdom and intellecutal accomplishments and gives credit to Afrikan people. And it shows how, through lies and miseducation people can be misled about the past. Thanks to this book and other schorlarly writings we now know, that the Egytpians, Afrikan people were the original source of the Arts and Sciences and not Socrates, Plato and Aristotle and the Greeks. This book was the first to tell the world of the stolen legacy that gives credit to black people. Correct the history books and hold your heads up! A muust read! Must have for the library.
