Format: Hardcover
After publishing a comprehensive synthesis of Amenhotep III's reign ("Amenhotep III: Perspectives on His Reign"), Professors Eric H. Cline and David O'Connor presents their new release, an outstanding and up to day collection of essays about one of Egypt's best known Pharaohs: Thutmose III. It was the editors attempt to present the first "...extensive monographic treatment in English..." of this great ruler of ancient Egypt. Before a couple of words about the volume in case, I have to emphasize: they fully succeeded to provide not only the English speaking scholars, but also the whole community of Egyptologists with a model monograph about Thutmose III. Cline and O'Connor has brought together some of the current leading Egyptologists to produce a single volume.This work introduces the reader to the following topics: a brief review of the reign of the "enigmatic" Thutmose III; his coregency with Hatshepsut; administration (one of the best developed studies of the book!); religion and cult; building activities; problems concerning with the art of the epoch; the warrior ruler; foreigners in Egypt, and the accession of Amenhotep II. The book is a remarkably good value for its information content. In general, the contributors present the state of our knowledge accurately and in due proportion, while focusing their efforts on producing comprehensive, insightful and lucid studies on topics important to anyone who wishes to conceive the realities of life in ancient Egypt during the reign of Thutmose III. For those who wish to investigate the debated subjects further, the editors provide a full bibliography. "Thutmose III. A New Bibliography" is sure to be a standard work in the field for many years to come.

A Thinking Person's Guide to Thutmose III 10 July 2006
By R. Paschal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Several months ago I purchased a copy of Thutmose III, A New Biography, Eric H. Cline & David O'Connor, Editors. I was somewhat concerned, given the price of the book, that it would be a rehash of earlier information about Thutmose III. I took the plunge anyway because Thutmose III, in particular, and the New Kingdom, in general, are two of my favorite research topics. Once I started the read, it was not long before I realized that this book is probably the definitive study on Thutmose III.

The symbolic and structural analysis of his tomb in Chapter 6 or the bibliography alone clearly justifies the investment in this book. I will order a second copy because when I reread it I am going to highlight and annotate the copy I have. The second copy will be acquired for archival purposes.

For anyone seriously interested in Thutmose III, Hatshepsut or the New Kingdom, the chapters authored by the twelve academic contributors provide the best single source I know to gain an understanding of the life and significance of this remarkable Pharaoh known as Thutmose III. The editors and contributors should be applauded for taking the time to write and make this biography available to the public.

Alas, Nothing Much New 25 Dec. 2007
By STARGAZER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Egyptological books are getting frightfully expensive and I'm not sure this "new biography" of Thutmose III is worth the investment. Fortunately, I was able to get my copy via interlibrary loan. This work [a compilation of essays by various experts, complete with copious footnotes]is too dry for most ancient Egypt enthusiasts and the data is already known to the savants. So just for whom is this book? I, myself, couldn't find a scrap of new information in it and not even a single sensible theory [or any theory, come to that], unless I really missed something. Sometimes footnotes are the most informative bits in such works, but here even the footnotes were bland and unenlightening. Usually, a book like this should be a "keeper", a reference for future use and nobody with any real scholarly interest would re-sell it used. Few persons have more interest in the 18th Dynasty than I do but, having read this biography, I wouldn't pay the price to have it in my own shelves.

Thorough and excellent 10 Jan. 2013
By K. A. Sanders - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a scholar's book. It does not read fast, but it does read fascinating. Indeed, it will take several readings before I'll feel I have even begun to grasp much of it, there is SO much information! I have a great deal of admiration for the authors for even attempting the daunting task of putting together such a detailed work as this. We are fortunate that so much information has survived on Thutmose III, Egypt's greatest Pharaoh (in my opinion). As any proper discussion of Thutmose III will also include an account of the lady who trained him, there is plenty of information on Hatshepsut, as well. Highly recommeded for those with a serious interest in Egyptology and the 18th Dynasty.
