    Description

    In the 660s BC Egypt was a politically fragmented and occupied country. However, this was to change when a family of local rulers from the city of Sais declared independence from the Assyrian Empire, and in a few short years succeeded in bringing about the reunification of Egypt. The Saites established central government, reformed the economy and promoted trade. The country became prosperous, achieving a pre-eminent role in the Mediterranean world. Egypt of the Saite pharaohs is the first monograph devoted entirely to a detailed exploration of the Saite Dynasty. It reveals the dynamic nature of the period, the astuteness of the Saite rulers and their considerable achievements in the political, economic, administrative and cultural spheres. It will appeal not only to students of Egyptology but also, because of the interactions of the Saite Dynasty with the Aegean and Mesopotamia worlds, to anyone interested in ancient history.

    Reviews

    'This handsome hardcover volume is more than sufficiently furnished with black-andwhite illustrations and numerous maps. Additional extensive references of over thirty pages (pp. 189-220) and a thoroughly elaborated
    index (pp. 221-30) conclude a well-conceived and well-executed book. Altogether, this is a most welcome and important contribution to the study of the Saite era'.
