About this title

Synopsis:


Here is a striking portrait of Akhenaten, monotheistic worshiper of the sun and best-known Egyptian king next to Tutankhamen. Various writers have depicted this strange ruler of the fourteenth century B.C. as a disguised woman or a eunuch, a mentor of Moses, or a forerunner of Christ. Drawing on a vast amount of new evidence from his own excavations, the Director of the Akhenaten Temple Project describes the kingly heretic against the background of imperial Egypt. Donald Redford's work, available for the first time in paperback, shows Akhenaten to be even more fascinating in this context than in earlier, less realistic interpretations.


Review:

"This elegantly produced volume aims to present the educated lay
public with a fresh view of one of the most notorious periods and
characters in the long and eventful history of ancient Egypt--the
reign of the eccentric sun-worshpping king Akhenaten. . . .a fresh
work is very welcome."--Kenneth Kitchen, Times Literary Supplement

"Redford has produced a remarkable book, one that engages both scholar and general reader. . . . [He] introduces the reader to the heretic king, to 18th Dynasty Egypt, and to history at its best."--Religious Studies Review

"[A] first-rate book which should be in the library of every scholar and enthusiastic amateur student of ancient Egypt."--Barbara Mertz, Washington Post Book World
