Abstract

The book begins with a critical analysis of the Political ideology of indigenous African Political systems and institutions from antiquity to the nineteenth century. The author begins with a claim that highly advanced civilization had existed through out the continent even before the advent of the Christian era.  African institutions were based on kingship and lineage system sanctioned by founding myth in all African societies. Thus, it is believed that religion is not separable from social and political life in sacred and secular spheres.
