First Sentence
HITHERTO Menes, the traditional founder of the First Dynasty of Egypt, although regularly cited in the native Egyptian king-lists from the old chronology of Sety I downwards to Manetho as the founder of the First Dynasty in Egypt, has been no shadowy and so little known, that notwithstanding the discovery of his "tomb," with contemporary inscriptions, by Sir Flinders Petrie in the royal cemeteries at Abydos in 1900, he is still regarded by the latest historical text-books as "a conflate personage of legend." Read the first page

By Wulf V

For a number of years now I have gained an appreciation of the works of Professor L.A. Waddell and in particular his Egyptian Civilization. Its Sumerian Origin and Real Chronology in which he provides uncontestable proofs of the Sumerian origin of Egyptian civilization, so-called `Egyptian` hieroglyphics and the pre-dynastic and first dynasty of Pharaohs and by extension their Indo-European origins.
He skillfully identifies through his decipherment of the Indo-Sumerian seals and his comparison between their inscriptions with those of the Indo-Aryan king lists and Sumerian and Egyptian chronicles that Pharaoh Menes is identical with Manis-Tusu,son of Sargon the Great,Manasyu of India and King Minos of Crete, a great Indo-European world emperor.
Professor Waddell`s work is unfortunately largely ignored by the academics, not because of lack of evidence or inherent logic but because his racial interpretation of ancient history has become an anathema since the end of WWII.
Since the discovery that the family of Tutankhamun have European DNA and the suppression of this fact by scientists and the Egyptian establishment it is time that this scholar`s works were revisited with an open mind.

1.0 out of 5 stars This book is full of racist white lies!!!! 31 May 2013

There is no such thing as white "Egypt". A Greek historian by the name of Herodotus stated fact that the Egyptian were black in his books.
