The author of Amarna Sunset now looks at how Akhenaten's experiment with monotheism began
AIDAN DODSON is a senior research fellow in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Bristol, where he teaches Egyptology. He was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London in 2003. He is the author of Amarna Sunset (AUC Press, 2009), Poisoned Legacy (AUC Press, 2010), and Afterglow of Empire (AUC Press, 2012).
A masterpiece of meticulous scholarship combined with a superbly organized and presented commentary makes Amarna Sunrise: Egypt from Golden Age to Age of Heresy an impressive contribution to the growing library of Egyptology Studies and a 'must' for academic library collections in the subject. Of special note are the maps and illustrations the enhance the text, the inclusion of extensive Notes, a 54 page Bibliography, and a comprehensive index. The accessibility of Amarna Sunrise: Egypt from Golden Age to Age of Heresy also renders it as ideal for non-specialist general readers with an interest in ancient Egyptian history.--Reviewer's Bookwatch
