⇖ Find The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt ⦕ Kindle Author Toby Wilkinson ⧎ ⇖ Find The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt ⦕ Kindle Author Toby Wilkinson ⧎ Starred Review Cambridge University Egyptologist Wilkinson Lives of the Ancient Egyptians offers a revisionist view of the ugly life hidden by the splendors and dazzling treasures of pharaonic Egypt He shows in rich detail that it was a brutal society where life was cheap, royal power absolute and established through fear and coercion Wilkinson finds unequivocal evidence in royal tombs like that of First Dynasty king Djer c 2900 B.C.E , surrounded by 318 buried retainers, probably victims of human sacrifice Even if construction workers for Khufu s Great Pyramid at Giza the ultimate projection of absolute power were reasonably fed and housed, they were virtual, if not literal, slaves, drafted to perform the perilous work Later the fanatical, heretic king Akhenaten built a new model city with grand temples where mountains of food were offered to a sun god while his people were starving and severely overworked The Ptolemies punitive economic policies unleashed a peasants revolt that fatally weakened their empire This is a penetrating and authoritative overview of a violent ancient civilization often revered by contemporary scholars and enthusiasts 24 pages of color photos 44 bw photos 12 maps Mar c Copyright PWxyz, LLC All rights reserved.Egyptologists constitute a relatively small subspecialty among professional historians Perhaps that is why many express an almost fanatical devotion to and admiration for the culture of ancient Egypt Wilkinson, an award winning Egyptologist who teaches at Oxford, provides a fine single volume history of ancient Egypt that covers than 3,000 years, from prehistory to the Roman conquest He uses a conventional chronological approach that inevitably uses archaeological sources to provide examples Like his colleagues, Wilkinson expresses admiration for the continuity, stability, and relative harmony of pharaonic Egypt Yet he is strikingly at odds with other Egyptologists in his efforts to present the darker side of Egyptian life Egyptian rulers created and maintained the first true nation state As Wilkinson shows, however, the price of this stability was regimes based on fear, coercion, and, when deemed necessary, violent military suppression This superbly written survey is ideal for general readers and likely to engender controversy among specialists Jay Freeman The Rise and Again of Private Label nielsen The FMCG Retail Email Share separate
