    Review quote
    "Well written and researched....Photographs of artifacts, tombs, and statues are well-matched with text....A useful addition for report writers and subject enthusiasts."--School Library Journal"A meticulously detailed, well-researched text that pieces together fragmented collections of Egyptian writing, art, and architecture to create a very comprehensive resource....Accessible as well as intelligent. A worthwhile acquisition for both middle- and high-school libraries."--Booklist"An attractive, student-friendly research tool....A solid addition to the Oxford Profiles series....Will be very helpful for the 'ancient Egypt assignment.' The text is readable and should be accessible to most students."--Reference Books Bulletin"This extremely well researched book is a welcome addition to the enormous body of material on ancient Egypt. Though part of the Oxford Profiles series aimed at young readers, it is potentially of interest even to adults....A good investment and an excellent resource for curious and inquiring young minds." --The Classical Outlook"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 satisfy students ready to move from 'mummy books' toward a broader examination of Egyptian political life."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
