This book is a new original translation of the Ancient Egyptian Book of the Deadbased on surviving papyri from Ancient Egypt " I Know myself, I know myself, I am One With God!-From the Pert Em Heru "The Ru Pert em Heru" or "Ancient Egyptian Book of The Dead," or "Book of Coming Forth By Day" as it is more popularly known, has fascinated the world since the successful translation of Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic scripture over 150 years ago. The astonishing writings in it reveal that the Ancient Egyptians believed in life after death and in an ultimate destiny to discover the Divine. The elegance and aesthetic beauty of the hieroglyphic text itself has inspired many see it as an art form in and of itself. But is there more to it than that? Did the Ancient Egyptian wisdom contain more than just aphorisms and hopes of eternal life beyond death? In this volume Dr. Muata Ashby, the author of over 25 books on Ancient Egyptian Yoga Philosophy has produced a new translation of the original texts which uncovers a mystical teaching underlying the sayings and rituals instituted by the Ancient Egyptian Sages and Saints. "Once the philosophy of Ancient Egypt is understood as a mystical tradition instead of as a religion or primitive mythology, it reveals its secrets which if practiced today will lead anyone to discover the glory of spiritual self-discovery. The Pert em Heru is in every way comparable to the Indian Upanishads or the Tibetan Book of the Dead."

Ivan Van Sertima Black Women In Antiquity - EBOOK £ 2.99

The book is divided into three parts: Ethiopian and Egyptian Queens and Goddesses; Black Women in Ancient Art; and Conquerors and Courtesans. This new edition has an essay on the most powerful queen in history, Queen Hatshepsut. Black Women in Antiquity provides a dramatic account of the role black women have played in the history and development of civilization.
Carter G. Woodson EBOOK Miseducation Of The Negro - EBOOK 978-1574781267
Carter G. Woodson Miseducation Of The Negro - EBOOK £ 1.99
The Mis-Education of the Negro is one of the most important books on education ever written. The oppressor has always indoctrinated the weak with his interpretation of the crimes of the strong. Considered Woodson's seminal work, this text explores his thesis that African Americans were being culturally indoctrinated, rather than taught, in American schools. He asserts that this conditioning caused African-Americans to become dependent and to seek out inferior places in the greater society of which they were a part. Woodson skillfully exposes the weaknesses of Euro-centric based curriculums that failed to include African American history and culture. Published November 1st 2006.
Dr Muata Ashby EBOOK Egyptian Mysteries - EBOOK 978-1884564413
Dr Muata Ashby Egyptian Mysteries - EBOOK £ 1.99
What are the Mysteries? For thousands of years the spiritual tradition of Ancient Egypt, Shetaut Neter, "The Egyptian Mysteries," "The Secret Teachings," have fascinated, tantalized and amazed the world. At one time exalted and recognized as the highest culture of the world, by Africans, Europeans, Asiatics, Hindus, Buddhists and other cultures of the ancient world, in time it was shunned by the emerging orthodox world religions. Its temples desecrated, its philosophy maligned, its tradition spurned, its philosophy dormant in the mystical Medu Neter, the mysterious hieroglyphic texts which hold the secret symbolic meaning that has scarcely been discerned up to now. What are the secrets of Nehast {spiritual awakening and emancipation, resurrection}. More than just a literal translation, this volume is for awakening to the secret code Shetitu of the teaching which was not deciphered by Egyptologists, nor could be understood by ordinary spiritualists. This book is a reinstatement of the original science made available for our times, to the reincarnated followers of Ancient Egyptian culture and the prospect of spiritual freedom to break the bonds of Khemn, "ignorance," and slavery to evil forces: Såaa .

Assata Shakur EBOOK Assata An Autobiography - EBOOK 978-1556520747
Assata Shakur Assata An Autobiography - EBOOK £ 1.99
On May 2, 1973, Black Panther Assata Shakur (aka JoAnne Chesimard) lay in a hospital, close to death, handcuffed to her bed, while local, state, and federal police attempted to question her about the shootout on the New Jersey Turnpike that had claimed the life of a white state trooper. Long a target of J. Edgar Hoover's campaign to defame, infiltrate, and criminalize Black nationalist organizations and their leaders, Shakur was incarcerated for four years prior to her conviction on flimsy evidence in 1977 as an accomplice to murder. This intensely personal and political autobiography belies the fearsome image of JoAnne Chesimard long projected by the media and the state. With wit and candor, Assata Shakur recounts the experiences that led her to a life of activism and portrays the strengths, weaknesses, and eventual demise of Black and White revolutionary groups at the hand of government officials. The result is a signal contribution to the literature about growing up Black in America that has already taken its place alongside The Autobiography of Malcolm X and the works of Maya Angelou. Two years after her conviction, Assata Shakur escaped from prison. She was given political asylum by Cuba, where she now resides.

George G. M. James EBOOK Stolen Legacy: Greek Philosophy is Stolen Egyptian Philosophy - EBOOK 9781635610574
George G. M. James Stolen Legacy: Greek Philosophy is Stolen Egypt... £ 1.99
In this strong and confident book, George G. M. James states that the “Greek philosophy” in which nearly all of Western culture has its roots actually originated in ancient Egypt. Carefully drawing on historical research and a new age rethinking of the typical narrative of Greek history, James asserts that our celebration of the ancient Greeks as the creators of Western civilisation and philosophy is misattributed. He argues our praise rightfully belongs to the people of Africa. Furthermore, this massive knowledgable and cultural theft has helped lend credence to the damaging notion that the entire continent of Africa has contributed nothing to world civilisation.  James explorers noted connections between glorified Greek philosophers and the influence of Egyptian thought, suggesting other possible links between northern Africa and Greece as well.Stolen Legacy is an important book for understanding the history of philosophy, culture and race in the modern world.

Chancellor Williams EBOOK The Destruction Of Black Civilization - EBOOK 9780883780305
Chancellor Williams The Destruction Of Black Civilization - EBOOK £ 3.99
Great Issues of a Race from 4500 B.C. to 2000 The Destruction of Black Civilization took Chancellor Williams 16 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. The book, thus, offers "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 planning what we should be about now."

Edward Sugden Israels Debt to Egypt - EBOOK £ 3.99
The New & Revised Edition published by the Lion of Judah Society (LOJS) contains additional commentary and illustrations, along Publisher's notes by Ras Iadonis Tafari. The book explores the historical contacts between Egypt and Israel, especially the influence of Egypt on the religion of Israel, i.e. language, literature; arts and crafts. Moses, the Lawgiver, was educated in Egypt and “was learned in all the wisdoms of the Egyptians.” Moses possessed excellent knowledge of Egyptian Religion. Wallis Budge says “the depth of his knowledge of Egyptian magico-religious ritual is proved by the closeness with which he followed it in constructing the Tabernacle, and in the regulations which he drew up concerning offerings, the equipment of the Tabernacle and the official dress of the priests.”
John Henrik Clarke EBOOK Christopher Columbus And The African Holocaust - EBOOK 978-1617590306
John Henrik Clarke Christopher Columbus And The African Holocaust ... £ 3.99
Slavery and the Rise of European Capitalism  Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust: “The Middle Passage. Our Holocaust. It is our holocaust because this is a holocaust that started 500 years ago and it is not over. We do not start our count at 6 million, we start counting at 60 million, and we have just began to count. Now I do not mean to negate the German and the European Holocaust. Whether the number was 6 or 60 million, even if it was wrong. But it was a problem started in Europe by Europeans that should have been resolved in Europe and Europeans. There is no comparisons between this tragedy and our tragedy which was the greatest crime in the history of the world. why haven’t we memorialized our dead? It was almost like the crime of not burying them. Dr. John Henrik Clarke In Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust, provides an overall analysis of a period of history that has been systematically falsified and hidden from the serious scrutiny of African-centred scholars and researchers and other committed individuals. He points to concepts that are keys to unveiling that truth about African history and destroying the “Big Lies” about white supremacy. Dr. Clarke challenges the traditional views of African Civilizations and its strength and weaknesses before the enslavement and colonialism periods. He challenges the Eurocentric view of Columbus as a “discovered” and states that he set in motion the genocidal process and renewed western racism. Professor Clarke points out that Columbus set in motion, political forces that established a global system of exploitation. This system has its roots in the Columbus Era and produced European world domination.” Praise for Christopher Columbus and the Afrikan Holocaust “Dr. Clarke has examined this colossal dehumanizing of a people with minute detail, step by step and his chronicles reveal that the African Holocaust was “the greatest single crime in the world” committed against a people. Nothing ese can match this genocide and destruction.” –Dr. Edward Scobe

Various Authors EBOOK Africa in the World Economy- EBOOK 9788932230467
Various Authors Africa in the World Economy- EBOOK £ 1.99
The contributors to this book examine the economic constraints to growth and development faced by sub-Saharan African countries. These constraints include the underdevelopment of domestic capital markets, the lack of national and regional infrastructures, and the ongoing dependence on the export of commodities whose prices and markets are volatile and remain largely determined by the large companies of western countries. At the same time, the book discusses the international community's responsibility to remove obstacles of its own making and create the necessary international conditions that would enable Africa to overcome its development and poverty problems. Experienced scholars and policymakers from Africa, policy-oriented experts from western and Asian countries, and research-oriented officials of the IMF, World Bank, UN and WTO present their views on Africas challenges. Their analyses provide useful insights into how policies can be improved at the national, regional and international levels. All of the chapters defy some cliches about Africas development. The book includes an interesting discussion about the development model Ð the role of the state and the role of the market Ð that would best fit African realities, and the lessons that can be learned from experiences in Latin America and Asia. It also includes a timely analysis of the developmental role of emerging Asian investments into Africa The contributing authors are deeply concerned about AfricaÕs fate. Their analyses and solutions are highly useful to those who want to contribute to improving the economic situation in Africa. Some of the issues discussed in this book are also of great relevance to the development prospects, not only of the African region, but of poor countries in general.
Frantz Fanon EBOOK The Wretched of the Earth - EBOOK 9780802141323
Frantz Fanon The Wretched of the Earth - EBOOK £ 3.99
A distinguished psychiatrist from Martinique who took part in the Algerian Nationalist Movement, Frantz Fanon was one of the most important theorists of revolutionary struggle, colonialism, and racial difference in history. Fanon’s masterwork is a classic alongside Edward Said’s Orientalism or The Autobiography of Malcolm X, and it is now available in a new translation that updates its language for a new generation of readers. The Wretched of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage and frustration of colonized peoples, and the role of violence in effecting historical change, the book incisively attacks the twin perils of postindependence colonial politics: the disenfranchisement of the masses by the elites on the one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. Fanon’s analysis, a veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, has been reflected all too clearly in the corruption and violence that has plagued present-day Africa. The Wretched of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black consciousness movements around the world, and this bold new translation by Richard Philcox reaffirms it as a landmark.

Michael West - EBOOK From Toussaint to Tupac - EBOOK 978-0807859728
Michael West - From Toussaint to Tupac - EBOOK £ 2.99
The Black International since the Age of Revolution Transcending geographic and cultural lines, From Toussaint to Tupac is an ambitious collection of essays exploring black internationalism and its implications for a black consciousness. At its core, black internationalism is a struggle against oppression, whether manifested in slavery, colonialism, or racism. The ten essays in this volume offer a comprehensive overview of the global movements that define black internationalism, from its origins in the colonial period to the present. From Toussaint to Tupac focuses on three moments in global black history: the American and Haitian revolutions, the Garvey movement and the Communist International following World War I, and the Black Power movement of the late twentieth century. Contributors demonstrate how black internationalism emerged and influenced events in particular localities, how participants in the various struggles communicated across natural and man-made boundaries, and how the black international aided resistance on the local level, creating a collective consciousness. In sharp contrast to studies that confine Black Power to particular national locales, this volume demonstrates the global reach and resonance of the movement. The volume concludes with a discussion of hip hop, including its cultural and ideological antecedents in Black Power. Contributors: Hakim Adi, Middlesex University, London Sylvia R.
