Publisher's Summary

The history of Ethiopia could also be called the history of humanity. The question is not if this history is well documented, but why it is not thought widely in schools. The time necessary to study the tomes that refer to the Nubians as the forebearers of our civilization is enormous. 

The world owes Ethiopia for its history, astronomy, agriculture and all the other sciences, and John G. Jackson gave ample references to validate this claim. Ethiopia’s history is incredible and a treasure to the world and it is a shame that it has been distorted by the persistent Eurocentrism.

Africans have been taken out of history...

The fear that exists amidst most historians is that their foundation is based off of lies, deception and misconceptions merely to keep Africans out of the history books.... Many would rather accept lies as truth than to live with the fact that the real truths have yet to even be professed...

Understand the True History

This book really breaks it all down, I'm going to have a 2nd listen to absorb it all again. This is a must listen for those who want a quick overview of the beginnings of civilization.

Essay

I would prefer to pursue the subject with facts that I can verify or read for myself. The narrator is talking at you, which I suppose would be ok for an essay, but annoying. Albeit, it is an essay. Although interested in the subject of the Ethiopian civilization, this did not meet my expectation. (The references might.)

Riddled with inaccuracies

What a disappointment.! I was interested in learning more about the origins of Ethiopia, particularly because of their "First Temple" Jewish practices, Unfortunately this is just another revisionist history. It is full of inaccuracies based on unfounded opinions. Anthropologically, he makes one false claim after another, assuming the reader has no experience with or knowledge of Ancient Mesopotamian and Indian cultures. The author credits the Ethiopians for providing Egypt with their iron, which he claims the used to built their ancient civilization, again, assuming the reader does not know that iron was not smelted in Egypt until the 7th century B,C, Almost all of his recitations are from dubious and/or repudiated and thoroughly dated material. The narrator did an admirable job.

Purchase the Book

Please purchase a hard copy of the book. This audio version is horrible! Who selected this narrator? He's awful! I'm not purchasing any additional audio books from audible.
