Most widely held works by Cheikh Anta Diop
The African origin of civilization: myth or reality by Cheikh Anta Diop( )

105 editions published between 1954 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 2,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Edited and translated by Mercer Cook. Laymen and scholars alike will welcome the publication of this one-volume translation of the major sections of C.A. Diop's two books, Nations negres et culture and Anteriorite des civilizations negres, which have profoundly influenced thinking about Africa around the world. It was largely because of these works that, at the World Festival of the Arts held in Dakar in 1966, Dr. Diop shared with the late W.E.B. DuBois an award as the writer who had exerted the greatest influence on Negro thought in the 20th century

Precolonial Black Africa : a comparative study of the political and social systems of Europe and Black Africa, from antiquity to the formation of modern states by Cheikh Anta Diop( )

34 editions published between 1960 and 2012 in English and French and held by 1,452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Diop compares the political and social systems of Europe and black Africa from antiquity to the formation of modern states. Throughout, his intent is not to provide a history as such, but rather guidelines for historians and others who seek a scientific understanding of Precolonial societies in Africa, the Mediterranean, and Europe and their links with the earliest known stages of human development. Students and scholars of Africa and world history will be challenged by Diop's original - though controversial - analysis of the similarities and striking differences between black Africa and the West." -- Amazon.com viewed June 12, 2020

The cultural unity of Black Africa : the domains of patriarchy and of matriarchy in classical antiquity by Cheikh Anta Diop( Book )

25 editions published between 1959 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cultural Unity of Black Africa is a profound contribution to the universal store of knowledge in that it situates the geographical and cultural origins of patriarchy and matriarchy in Europe and Africa respectively, and shows that social systems evolve out of specific climatic and environmental factors. These proclivities predispose the inhabitants of both zones towards a particular world-view and thus meaningful conflict. Diop also demonstrates the extensive influence of ancient Egypt on classical Greece in terms of literature, science and philosophy."--Publisher's description

1 edition published in 1974 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Toute l'œuvre de Cheikh Anta Diop milite en faveur de l'unité de l'Afrique Noire ; de cette unité, gage d'indépendance vraie, l'auteur, partisan d'un État fédéral d'Afrique Noire, pose ici les fondements. Dès qu'il est affirmé, le principe de l'unité transforme tous les problèmes auxquels l'Afrique s'affronte. À l'inverse de ce que les compromissions de l'empirisme provoquent, par le geste unitaire une voie de développement est indiquée, claire, dynamique, convaincante. Mais la volonté d'unité appartient au politique ; dans ce livre, Cheikh Anta Diop, fort de son grand savoir des réalités africaines, démontre seulement le bien-fondé et la fécondité de son option. Qu'il nous suffise d'énumérer dans l'ordre les différents niveaux éclairés par le principe et soumis à l'inventaire et à l'analyse objective. Pour les hommes, il n'y a pas d'unité sans mémoire : il s'agit de restaurer la conscience historique africaine. Il n'y a pas d'identité nationale et fédérale sans un langage commun : l'unification linguistique est possible. Pire que la balkanisation, la sud-américanisation guette l'Afrique désunie : unité politique et fédéralisme
