    Paperback Description:

    This volume is a lucid and essential contribution to our critical understanding of the intellectual and practical work of Cheikh Anta Diop. Professor Asante identifies and clarifies the key components, concerns and evolutionary contours in Diopian thought, and weaves them into a richly textured pattern and composite portrait of this distinguished scholar of astounding erudition and extraordinary insight. Asante traces Diop’s intellectual and political evolution, opens critical vistas into his multidisciplinary competence and approach. The book focuses on Diop’s constant concern with putting knowledge and science in the service of the dignity and development of Africa. Moreover, Asante reaffirms Diop’s towering position as a founding figure in African-centered scholarship and his expansive and enduring influence in the world African community.
