5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Presentation, 31 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Diana Patch has made a great job of presenting Egypt before the pharaohs. Superb photos and up to date interpretation makes this a fascinating read for anyone interested in ancient Egypt. Accessible to professional and enthusiast alike, the objects come out from behind museum glass and include a number probably not noticed on a museum visit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little known decisive battle, 29 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Along with Qadasiya, Yarmuk must rank as one of the most decisive battles in world history-yet little known in the West. Given that the political map on the ground even today results from the Muslim conquests, Raymond Ibrahim provides a vital service in giving us a rational and well historically grounded account of the battle and the reasons for the Arab victory. The only drawback is the price, as this work deserves to be much more widely known.


The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt
The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt

5.0 out of 5 stars Rise & Fall of Ancient Egypt rises to the Occasion, 8 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A tour de force from Toby Wilkinson, not only comprehensive and informative but witty and entertaining too. One of the most significant aspects of pharaonic Egypt he reminds us of (which is commonly glossed over by Egyptologists) is that kingly power ultimately, and commonly relied on force. Tomb robbery and conspiracies against the ruler show that human beings have always been motivated by the same things, albeit manifested differently down the ages due to local circumstances. Well worth the money.
