Vision and Time is a wake up call for Africans and people of goodwill that the academic enterprise cannot continue knowledge creation with a business as usual attitude. There has to be a major transformation of the intellectual perspectives regarding Africa and Africans in the 21st century. This revised edition of 1995's Vision, Identity and Time explores the relationship of a geo-culturally based Africa centered paradigm in the emerging global village of the 21st century. This text argues that perceptions of world history in a multicultural world require the acceptance of multiple perspectives. The book distinguishes between hegemonic and non-hegemonic perspectives, discusses the significance of early Nile Valley culture and outlines frameworks of analysis using examples of African American history and South African history. Vision and Time is illustrated with diagrams and maps that explain complex developments. This is a book that enables social science practitioners to meet the challenges of a diverse global village of the 21st century.
