Incoherent conspiracy theoryBy AlShayibThis is the most incoherent book I have ever opened. While sympathetic to the main point of this book, namely that Ancient Egypt should be honored as an African civilization, the book itself is so poorly written and sloppy, I can't give it any credibility. Right from the introduction, page vii, the book is full of misspellings, which alone calls into question the quality of the author's research. The cover claims that the author lived in Egypt for an unspecified period of time, but in the glossary he states that "Mizreer" is "the Arabic word for Egypt." The word is actually "Misr", so he was closeish but not really. He cites "Mizrain" as "the name given Egypt by the early Haribu/Hebrew of the Hebrew Holy Torah." The word is actually more like "Mizraiyim." There are lots of "n"s where there should be "m"s, which I suspect is due to his proofreader being unable to read his handwriting. Another funny example of spelling is his reference to "Alex Haley's less than a 'NOVEL' the Purlitser Foundation, Inc. people prefered to label '...PRIZE FOR FRICTION.'" Based on the rest of his book, I don't believe this spelling is supposed to be sarcastic. Actually, the title of the book is misspelled. Granted there are many different ways to transliterate Arabic place names, there is no reason to spell Giza with Gh.The anti-African conspiracy aspect of the book is extremely offputting, and, in my opinion, unjustified.I just think those who want to highlight Africans' contribution to world civilization need an advocate who is


more credible.
