The acknowledged master of these texts is William Moran, who produced a complete re-edition of the tablets, in French, in 1987. The Amarna Letters is a revised version of this, done into English. Open it, and hear these voices from a vanished empire speak after three and a half millennia.
(Times Literary Supplement
Fascinating... The refined scholarship and mature pedagogy of a distinguished student of the ancient Near East.
(Libraries and Culture
A superb treatment of the Amarna Letters.
