    Book Description: 


    Nile Valley Civilizations brings together the latest research on the Nile Valley changing long-standing notions about who created Nile Valley civilizations, what they achieved, and their impact on Africa and the world. The authors take an "Afrocentric" in contrast to a "Eurocentric" perspective in their studies of the birthplace of civilization. They show the Nile Valley civilizations to be a source of science and philosophy, as part of the Judeo-Chris-tian heritage, and as influences on ancient America and Asia, shedding new light on neglected realities of history.
