What is classical about Classical Civilization? In one of the most audacious works of scholarship ever written, Martin Bernal challenges the whole basis of our thinking about this question. He argues that Classical civilization has deep roots in Afrosiatic cultures, but that these influences have been systematically suppressed since the eighteenth century - chiefly for racist reasons.
