In his book "Ramses II and His Time", Immanuel Velikovsky continues his reconstruction of ancient history. This volume covers the best-known of old Egypt's pharaohs, Ramses II. Velikovsky points out how little we know about this famous ruler. His revised chronology places Ramses II firmly into the 7th century B.C. and not, as we have been led to believe, hundreds of years earlier in the 13th century B.C.. Ramses II's adversary was thus none other than Nebuchadnezzar. We are made privy to fascinating personal details about this great Chaldean ruler, whose autobiography Velikovsky was able to locate. As in the first part of the series "Ages in Chaos", this volume unearths a string of erroneous theories and dismisses as pure fantasy several other aspects of the traditional written history concerning the ancient world. We learn, for example, that the so-called Hittite Empire is an historical invention and, in another critical paragraph, Velikovsky leads us the to the proper understanding of the Bronze- and Iron Ages. In the extensive supplement, Velikovsky deals with the age-calculating method of radiocarbon dating and its surprising connections to his own theories.

From the Publisher:

The volumes of the series Ages in Chaos deal not only with events in a far-away epoch of the past, but actually with the chaotic state of our present view of that time. Immanuel Velikovsky unveils in his well-known systematic and easy-to-follow presentation facts of an importance that cannot be underestimated. Starting from worldwide natural catastrophes in antiquity he succeeds in straightening up the historical events which have gotten into a complete disorder in our history books. In doing so he shows how chaotic our view of history - but also the way of thinking and working of those who have created this view - actually is.

All this makes the book a very interesting and exciting reading leaving the specialist of old history stunned with surprise or dismay, and presenting the layman with fascinating understandings. At the same time it shows the precision of the recordings of our ancestors, above all of the authors of the Old Testament, and gives us revealing insights in the way scientists work.

Therefore even those who normally are not really interested in old history get fundamentally new perspectives and inputs. For on the one hand it is straightforward to assume the chaotic state of affaires revealed in the established teaching and in the conventional methodology to be found in other scientific disciplines as well. On the other hand quite a few questions might come up about inconsistencies in other historical epochs, too. After all, our view of the world and our present-day society are built upon what we believe to know from history, and the learning from history, which is referred to so often, crucially depends upon the correctness of the information about the historical context and course of events.

Summing up, this book is far more than "just" a dry history book for the specialist. It can be the starting point for a critical and open enlightenment. For when you have seen clearly and precisely at the example presented here how justified - in fact necessary - the questioning of even well established doctrines is, you will more easily follow up "heretical" doubts in other areas as well.

From the Back Cover:

This book is a kind of detective story with actual historical characters: Ramses II, old Egypt's best-known pharaoh, Nebuchadnezzar, the great Chaldean ruler and several mysterious figures about whom much is said but who, in the end, are revealed to be pure figments of the imagination.

Immanuel Velikovsky uncovers several misleading errors in the conventional historical narrative and replaces them with the fascinating details of a revised epoch of ancient Egyptian history.

The supplement is dedicated to radiocarbon dating. It explains the background and significance of this physical-scientific dating method, as well as its take on the different theories of chronology.
