How about Cleopatra? Was Greece colonized by Egypt? As absurd as these claims seem, they, and other "truths" are being taught to college students across the country. In "Not Out of Africa", Lefkowitz debunks the claims made by the Afrocentric movement, presenting a fascinating and scholarly look at these myths and explaining why they have propagated despite an overwhelming lack of real evidence.

The work itself is not constructed very well in relation to its intended theme. Nevertheless, it has a place in the annals as a perspective; a point of view.
This work enables the student to glean certain attitudes, nuances, and methodologies of a specific camp of classicists in their reaction to proposals of greater non-Eurocentric influences in the evolution of world history.
This work addresses specific topics, yet it attempts to generalize based upon those specific topics. It further identifies Afrocentrism as predominant in its theme, yet fails to connect, with any convincing relevancy, Afrocentrism to the facts, figures, and suppositions within the work.
The heavily reactionary undertones are clearly visible in the text and structure, the combination of which undermines the studiousness of its theme. A layman could possibly be persuaded by the emotional character of the text. But the text, itself, falls far short of a credible academic standard.
In an effort to explain how Afrocentrism has spurred a growth of implausible assertions that have, in turn, matriculated into a falsification of historical data, the work, ironically, illuminates the shallowness of the full depth of academic introspection into understanding the relationships between the various ancient cultures in the broad context of human dynamics, and further reinforces the assertions that classics, and its by-products are heavily influenced by ideals that have widely acknowledged origins in racists ideology.
