    5-0 out of 5 stars The Realities of Daily Life
    Even if you do not have much of an interest in Ancient Egypt this book is filled with information and explanations that will make you wonder why you haven't given much thought to the Ancient Egyptians before. The art, literature (first love poems!!), and architecture are enough to make you marvel.But the creation of a 365 day calander a by the ancient Egyptians a few thousand years ago is enough to give you pause; then you discover how really remarkable their skill and knowledge of medicine was and you sit back in awe, at least I did. Though there are illustrations, I wish there were more. And for some reason (though this may be unique to my eyes) the font that the Greenwood Press uses in this book, seems to require more focused reading. But these are very small concerns regarding a book that really gives you more than just information. It gives you a sense of the whole culture, and, if you're like me, you'll want to find out even more, which is a clear sign that the authors have done an excellent job. ... Read more

    This book basically follows the same format for the "Handbook to life in Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome" books of Adkins and Adkins.That's a good thing, since I enjoyed those books.

    I have significant interest in Ancient Egypt but know very little about it.Most texts simply concentrate on the pyramids and other monumental architecture.This text gives you a much more balanced introduction and includes sections on history, religion, the military, geography, trade and economy, and daily life. It's organized very well.It has plenty of pictures, illustrations, chronologies, etc. There is a suggested bibliography at the end of each section to encourage research in greater depth.

    Overall this is a very affordable and user friendly survey of Ancient Egypt that will service students as well as adults with no prior background to the subject.

    HANDBOOK TO LIFE IN ANCIENT EGYPT is a very helpful reference and the revised edition gives the most up-to-date information. It really is more like an encyclopedia. It is not necessary to be read cover to cover as such, although the reader can do so. It is divided up into 12 chapters covering 12 different topics. Some of the information, if pertinent, overlaps in the chapters, but is put there for completeness. The chapters are: 1 - Egyptology, Archaeology and Scientific Mummy Studies in Egypt; 2 - Historical Background; 3-Geography of Ancient Egypt; 4 - Society and Government; 5 - Religion of the Living; 6-- Funerary Beliefs and Customs; 7 - Architecture and Building; 8-- Written Evidence; 9-- The Army and Navy; 10 -- Foreign Trade and Transport; 11 - Economy and Industry; and 12 -- Everyday Life. There are also a Chronological Table, a List of Museums with Egyptian Collections, a Bibliography and an Index included.
    This is a helpful reference for anyone and is especially useful to the person just beginning to learn about Ancient Egypt.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Fun, but not enough "hard" data
    I would say this book is written for the 9 - 13 year old group. It is fun to read with nice illustrations, and told in a story-like manner. The problem with that is that it seems very fictional. Why does the author suggest that this is how ancient Egyptians lived? There is not much information about what has been found in ancient Egyptian tombs which verify the author's claims.

    Perhaps this is fine for children with a passing interest in the subject, but my 9 year old is very skeptical and wants to know WHY it's supposed that Egyptians trained housecats to hunt, for instance.

    The language is simple enough for 9 year olds, and there is enough to read to make it interesting.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Even adults will learn something
    There is so much information packed onto the pages of this childrens book you'll feel like you went to a seminar on Ancient Egypt. (Did you know that ancient Egyptian men had to pay alimony if they divorced their wives?)Notonly is it well researched and well written it is also beautifully laid outand illustrated, I'll definitly buy more Troll books for my children. ...

    this is a good book but is from 1971 and has 411 black and white illustrations. has 565 pages in small print.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Enduring Quality
    Erman wrote this book at the end of the 19th century and it is a testamentto his scholarship that the work is still as relevant today despite all ouradvances in archeology.The preface describes the inundation of Egypt ashappening in the authors time exactly as it did for the ancient egyptians(the Aswan High Dam was not built until the 1950's). Erman concentrated onthe simple aspecs of daily life as represented in paintings and statuaryand he succeeds in presenting an accessible but thoroughly presentedaccount of Egyptian daily life at all strata from Slave to Pharaoh.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "Life in Ancient Egypt"ÿ
    Adolf Erman did a very fine job on writing this book. It basically covers what it was like to live along the Nile in Ancient times. His writing is very easy to understand and I recommend it to teachers to read to theirclasses. Unlike some other books, this one does not just talk about thewell known pharaohs but some that I have never even heard of. He alsoincludesmany special events. This book was the best I have ever readabout Egyptology and covers everything anyone would need to know. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Scholarly Yes, Thesis No
    There are a wide variety of books on Ancient Egypt; they go from the pseudo-scientific-aliens-created-the-pyramids to the popular books for the general audience to the academic ones and everything in-between. PRIVATE LIFE IN NEW KINGDOM EGYPT by Lynn Meskell is a scholastic book. It is not a thesis. It uses short citations within the text to show where the author, an associate professor at Columbia University, acquired her ideas and information. This is used in many academic texts, not just in Egyptology, but in other areas as well. If the reader is not use to this type of writing, it might throw her/him off a bit. Personally my eyes just skim this and move on, unless it's something I want to look up.
    What is in this book? Chapter One, Interpretive Framework, establishes the author's ideas. Meskell's main focus is on the living. How did the ancient Egyptians live and how did they think and feel. In this chapter the author tells why and how she is going about this. This is another professorial convention and is always boring for the average reader.
    Chapter Two, Locales and Communities, is about how the Egyptians thought of themselves as a nation, people and local community. What did they call themselves? How are they different from other people around them? It is also how cities and houses were set up. Chapter Three, Social Selves, the idea of personhood from pregnancy, birth, stages of life to death is examined. Chapter Four, Founding a House, marriage, personal relationships within a household and who encompasses part of a household are examined. Chapter Five, Love, Eroticism, and the Sexual Self, is self-explanatory. There are highly interesting things on how sexuality was thought by the Egyptians, which are different from how our modern society interprets things. Chapter Six, Embodied Knowledge, items used by the body and how it explains the Egyptians are what this chapter looks at. Chapter Seven, Cycles of Death and Life, examines the idea of death in the non-elite society. There is a short Postscript, which is a kind of conclusion. This book is 238 pages long and contains notes, a bibliography and an index.
    Professor Lynn Meskell draws on text, archeology items, art, and ideas in sociology and anthropology to bring us as close to the Egyptians of the Middle Kingdom as possible. Unfortunately, she is not writing a popular text for the general audience, so her ideas might have to wait for some people. Ideas from academia usually surface first in papers published for other scholars, books published for the collegiate world, then books for the general audience and then documentaries seen on television, in which complex ideas are often lost in visuals or sensationalism. If you are looking for a read for the general audience then this is not your book. Try books by Bob Brier or Joann Fletcher or others. This book, however, should not be used as an introductory text to the world of Ancient Egypt. But sooner or later, if you're interested in more than People Magazine or the Alien-Atlantis theory of Egypt, the tomes of academia will call you.

    1-0 out of 5 stars A very dissapointing academic book
    Four people voted on the usefulness of my original review, and none of them found it helpful.I guess that is reason enough to try to rewrite it.Whether a review is pro or con, it ought to explain enough about why the reviewer made the decisions they made to be useful to the people who read the review.

    My main problem with this book was the writer's style.The book read like one long catalog of citations, or an overgrown footnote instead of a book.I recognize that the author wanted to place herself within the context of current theories and demonstrate that she knew what that range consisted of.It would have been more useful to me if she had discussed the theories and her opinions of them.I found the lists of historians useless and frustrating.I kept wanting to get to the meat of the issues, but all I found was pages and pages of these lists.

    It occurs to me that what I was reading was a PHD thesis and not a book.I suppose there is a place for published theses, but my bookshelf isn't one of them. ... Read more

    Texts are very interseting and helpful BUT the pictures are very poor quality.If you search for a book with colorful pictures about Egypt forget this book for ever.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A DEEP AND ENTERTAINED INSIGHT OF RAMESSIDE EGYPT
    Although the original edition of Montet's book goes back to the '50, I consider that it still holds good for anyone interested in getting a deep insight of everyday life in Pharaonic Egypt under the reign of Ramesses Ii, especially now that the greatest king of Egypt jumped back to popularity after the amazing discovery of tomb KV 5 in Valley of the Kings. This title is well-organized and better written by the hand of one of the most notable French Egyptologists, so that you will not be disapointed. Informative and highly readable, it contains a lot of records from the most varied sources. Highly recommendable. ... Read more

    This book provides much information on Ancient Egyptian society. Thechapters are organized by themes, each dealing with different subjects,which include childbirth, education, entertainment, marriage, funerarybeliefs and mummification.

    A pleasure to look at, and a pleasure to read! Theillustrations are superb. The text also is excellent. The author is not only an experienced archaeologist, but also an anthropologist, knowledgeable both in medicineandbiology. Unlike many other handsome books on ancientEgypt, he doesnot stop at the impressive architectural remains, and the pictures andsculptures detected in the tombs, but uses them, together with additionalmaterial, to provide a vivid and fascinating insight into the lives andthoughts of the ordinary people, from 4000 BCE to Roman times. ...

    This book is not meant to provide a detailed history of ancient Egypt.Rather, it is meant to breathe life into that history.The book show snips of life (musical entertainment, feasts, marriage and courtship, crafts, etc)that most history books gloss over.It is richly illustrated in vivid color photography so that there are examples of almost everything discussed.It also provides a wonderful timeline that you can reference while reading.It's certainly not the only book you'll want to read in learning about ancient Egypt, but it is definitely to be included.Something like this went out of print?Grab one before they're all gone.

    For anyone interested in knowing how was it like to live under the rule of the great New Kingdom Pharaohs of Egypt, this is the book. With grace and elegant style, Dr. James gifted us with a wonderful overview of everyday life taking as evidence the registers from tomb and temple wallpaintings and inscriptions, from which he has taken nice and amusing "bites of reality". There are texts from private and official letters and bussiness-documents; everything was masterly handed by the great British Egyptologist, so as to let us recover a lively glimpse of ancient Egyptians and their way-of-life in those golden ages. ...

    This work is a wonderful complement to Joyce Tyldesley's Daughters of Isis, for it covers most closely the lives of the young men and boys of ancient Egyptian society.Surprisingly and pleasantly, the Amarnaprincesses are mentioned several times and every now and again are studiedin detail.The plates are wonderful; the wooden statuettes from the OldKingdom are personal favorites.The treatment and rites children underwentduring the many phases of Egyptian history are examined, including games,garments, education, and rites of passage such as circumcision.Growing Upin Ancient Egypt is a fantastic book to have whether you are doing acomprehensive study on the matter or just plain curiousabout what it waslike to be a child of one of the most glorious--if not themost--civilizations of the ancient world. ...

    Loved it.This book is actually a textbook, but it's the most interesting textbook I've ever read.It really gives you a "feel" for daily life in ancient Egypt.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book
    I read this a while back and I must say, "jolly good writing," which of course is now my only expectation from Ms. Mertz/Peters/Michaels & any other pseudonyms she has chosen to go by.

    As an aside, I waswatching tv the other day and saw Ms. Mertz on an A&E Ancient MysteriesSpecial on Queen Maatkare Hatshepsut. That was Jolly Good too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Egypt Lives!
    A wonderful sequel to 'Temples, Tombs and Hieroglyphs',this book sets aside the well-scrutinized lives of famous pharoahs, and turns instead to the day-to-day life of the rest of Ancient Egypt.Much of the material isnew to me, and I found it fascinating reading.Of course, Ms. Mertz couldprobably make the Boston Phonebook palatable; I would certainly readanything she chose to write.(I firmly believeshe hangs out withElizabeth Peters;Joan Hess occasionally dropping in to make athreesome..)

    Enough fawning!Read this book!It's interesting!Youcan tell them I said so... ... Read more
