About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Like the discovery of an unknown mummy's tomb, Katanga A. Bongo's Civilization and the Ancient Egyptians sheds important new light on the most fascinating epoch in human history: Ancient Egypt. In this heavily researched work, Bongo traces the evolution of civilization not to the Middle East, as most scholars do, but rather the South American tribes whose cultures greatly influenced what became the Land of the Pharaohs. It's a tale of astonishing legends, staggering scientific advances, major cultural achievements, and disturbing practices (including the South American penchant for human sacrifice).

Through analysis of indigenous folklore and linguistic evidence, Bongo reveals a fresh picture of Africa and the nascent cultures that populated it. What emerges is an engaging account of life for both ordinary people and the major players, Kufu, Tutu-ank-Amen, Maya and others, whose contributions set the stage for all civilizations that followed.

Deftly constructed at 236 pages, Civilization and the Ancient Egyptians is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Historical - Ancient Civilizations category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Civilization and the Ancient Egyptians meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $24.95.

Additionally, Civilization and the Ancient Egyptians can be ordered by retailers or wholesalers for the maximum trade discount price set by the author in quantities of ten or more from the Outskirts Press wholesale online bookstore at www.outskirtspress.com/buybooks

About the Author

West Africa-born Katanga A. Bongo is a historian who lives in the United States. His research in South America’s influence on Africa was sparked by interest in the linguistic heritage of a relative, an 18th-century wanderer named Red Bird. Bongo’s quest took him throughout the two continents to uncover the true history of the Ancient Egyptians. Civilization and the Ancient Egyptians is the first in a series unraveling the mysteries of Africa.
