Editorial Reviews

"Remarkably comprehensive one-stop source for the movers and shakers of the Two Lands. The Bakers highlight not only the predictable list of pharaohs and well-known consorts, but also architects, governors, physicians, coregents, and military leaders who were influential....Will satisfystudents ready to move from 'mummy books' toward a broader examination of Egyptian political life."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
