Now in my second year of studying Egyptology, one of the periods I studying this year also involve the Hyksos who the Egyptians classed as atheist barbarians. Although it wasn't one of the study books I had to read I decided to purchase it. This provides an excellent overview of a period. I found this book informative, interesting and enjoyable to read.
Whether you are studying Egyptology or just want a little more knowledge then Shire Publications are all great books. Have a look at the rest of my reviews, you'll find number of Shire books mentioned.
It makes an excellent edition to my little Egyptian library, which now stands at nearly 1000 books on this subject. :-)
The capital city of the Hyksos was called Avaris and late June 2010 the BBC World Srvice announced the discovery of the remains of the city of Avaris.

this thin pamphlet can tell us nothing about the Hyksos period
in Canaan or Egypt. It is foggy. It has no sense of history or
human events at all. A D- school paper.
