Publisher: Rizzoli International Publications; (1998). This beautiful volume reveals an era in ancient Egypt known as the New Kingdom, a restless and aggressive time when Egypt became a Bronze Age superpower. "The Egyptians" presents this era's energy and splendor, illustrated with remarkable achievements in art and architecture. Each page displays the Egyptian's brilliant creations; magic amulets, tombs and temples, wall paintings and jewelry, and the author weaves a true tale of the daily life, beliefs, and ceremonies of this people. Read about Hatshepsut, the queen who became pharaoh, and her mysterious disappearance. Discover Egyptian fashion, in which men wore kilts, and women wore tight dresses. Unravel the secrets of mummification and see what ancient Egyptians looked like. Hear the stories of the great pharaohs and deities who gave the kingdom power. With full-color photographs and the talent of a storyteller, the author paints a portrait of ancient Egypt that is accessible to students, fascinating for adult readers, and provides an ideal introduction to this magnificent culture.

PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Michael Hayes has a Master of Arts (Egyptology) from the Macquarie University in Sydney and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Sydney. He teaches Ancient History at Domremy College, and has co-authored other books on ancient history including "Ancient Horizons" and "Deir el Medina and Pompeii". Compact in size and modest in price, Rizzoli's new history series offers an imaginative, authoritative introduction to life in the world's most important ancient cultures. Each title covers the period representing the height of that civilization's history, and introduces readers to the richness and diversity of daily existence in the physical as well as the spiritual world. Written by historians who are also skilled storytellers, these handsomely designed volumes provide an overview of each civilization's achievements in politics, art, war, and science. Each is filled with anecdotes about real people and incidents that show remarkable similarities to our own experiences -- stories to which contemporary readers can relate. Celtic divorce law permitted a woman to divorce her husband if he no longer pleased her. The Vikings, a feared race of marauders, crafted unbelievably beautiful jewelry and toys for their children. In Rome, there was fierce debate about life after death, and in Egypt, in an age of military expansion, a woman became pharaoh. A wealth of color photographs illustrates artwork, craft, artifacts, architecture, clothing, and jewelry, turning each beautifully jacketed book into a visually stunning, historically accurate keepsake. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: Good things can come in small packages. Lush photographs and full color make this short book worth the money. As a first introduction, especially for an intermediate young reader, "The Egyptians" is a wonderful place to start. "The Egyptians" covers various topics such as daily life, the temple of Amun at Karnak, and the life and times of Thutmose III. The book also focuses an entire chapter on Hatshepsut, combining artful photography with history of the woman who would be king. The Hatshepsut chapter is well-balanced, presenting several theories concerning Hatshepsut's motives and the denouement of her reign. A chapter on the enigmatic Amenhotep IV/Akhenaten depicts him as "a king in a hurry" -- a perfect title for Hayes' exposition of the alternately fascinating and maddening heretic. The chapter forms a fair yet brief introduction to the Amarna Period and captioned photographs enhance the story as it unfolds. Hayes also discusses the understanding of death in ancient Egypt, using imagery to explain concepts which seem strange to a modern audience. The recommended reading and glossary are superb. I would recommend The Egyptians as a gift or first book for budding armchair ancient history enthusiasts and/or young people interested in ancient Egypt. REVIEW: An overview of political, artistic, scientific, and other accomplishments of the ancient Egyptians, with stories and illustrations. REVIEW: Here is history made entertaining and accessible, with fascinating accounts of ancient peoples; how they lied, what they believed, what they created. READER REVIEW: REVIEW: The Egyptians offers readers a fascinating overview of over two thousand years of Egyptian religion, practice and daily life. Michael Hayes orders his information well, giving enough detail of recent discoveries and contradictary theories to keep the reader informed, but not so much the reader is lost or bored. Nearly every page has a photograph of a relevant artifact from ancient Egypt and a corresponding description of the importance of the pictured item. "The Egyptians" is an excellent introduction to Egyptian history and culture. I especially enjoyed the descriptions of the Egyptian ideas of religion. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
