By Jacob Carruthers

...
Dr. Carruthers exposes the African influence on Greek and Roman thought and its influence on the development of modern Western society, then establishes the urgency to defend and honor the role of Ancient African civilizations on this major event.
In the pages of Intellectual Warfare, Dr. Carruthers exposes fallacies and reestablishes new and undistorted ways of viewing the formation of Western society and how classic literature shaped the contemporary world in intricate and sometimes startlingly and brutally honest and uncompromising detail. He is not satisfied with simply challenging the reader to think about things differently, but goes further citing specific examples and offering instruction on how to begin to retrain oneself to think about the origins of modern society in other terms. The esteemed scholar and defender of African centered thought is ever vigilant and provocative in the pages of this text. He separates this latest work from other such critical efforts by expanding the text with instruction for implementing new ways of looking at the educational curriculum to ensure the challenge to improve education can be taken up by future generations. He offers insight into how to incorporate the reexamination of classical African literature in the education system.
Jacob H. Carruthers is the founder and former director of the Association for the Study of Classical African Civilizations (ASCAC). He is also a founding member and director of the Kemetic Institute in Chicago. He earned his doctorate in political science from the University of Colorado, and is currently a professor of Inner City Studies at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago.
