Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Until the Rosetta Stone was finally translated and the decoding of hieroglyphic writing made possible, much of Egyptian history was lost. The author has done a masterful job of distilling information, citing the highlights, and fitting it all together in an interesting and enlightening look at a puzzling subject. --H. The social and intellectual history here are fascinating. A handsome, inspiring book. --K.
