First published in 1954, 'Stolen Legacy' by George J.M. James is a bold and uncompromising book. James argues that the 'Greek philosophy' in which nearly all of the Western culture has its roots actually originated in ancient Egypt Drawing on careful historical research and a radical rethinking of the conventional narrative of Greek history. He asserts that our celebration of the ancient Greeks as the creators of Western civilization and philosophy is misattributed.

Furthermore, this massive intellectual and cultural theft have helped lend credence to the damaging notion that the entire continent of Africa has contributed nothing to world civilization. It is indeed surprising how, for centuries, the Greeks have been praised by the Western World for intellectual accomplishments which belong without a doubt to the Egyptians or the peoples of North Africa.

An important book for understanding the history of philosophy, culture, and race in the modern world, this book is not to be missed.
