Akhenaten: Egypt's False Prophet

Akhenaten: Egypt's False Prophet Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

One of the most compelling figures in history was Akhenaten, an Egyptian pharaoh. Nicholas Reeves presents a provocative interpretation of Akhenaten including the puzzle of the body in Tomb 55, the identity of his mysterious successor, the fate of Nefertiti, his beautiful wife, and the theory that Tutankhamen, his son and true heir, was murdered. 142 illustrations.

Synopsis:

Akhenaten sought to impose upon Egypt and its people the worship of a single god. This book argues that, far from the idealistic founder of a new faith, Akhenaten used religion for purely political ends in an attempt to reassert the authority of the king and concentrate power in his own hands.
