1-0 out of 5 stars RIP OFF
I would have given this book zero stars but 1 was the lowest allowed.This is a total cheap rip off chop job reprint.I could take the corn ball dread lock guys pasted on the cover with green crowns on their heads but they don't tell you that they have completely left out Budge's introducti0n. I had to go find it on line and download it (the whole book is online by the way, if you care to read/ print it).
The typface is in at least two different fonts.
How they got an actual photograph of Makeda, the legendary Queen of Sheba is beyond me.
When you look through the index, they have left in all the references to the missing introduction so there are all these entries in roman numerals that do not exist.
Give me a break.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Legend of the Ark and the Solomonic Dynasty
This is an excellent accessible reprint of the famous Oxford Univ Press translation by Sir E. A. Wallis Budge, perhaps the foremost Egyptologist and archaeolinguist of the late 19th Century. It retells the Ethiopian legend of the founding of the "Solomonic" dynasty, which only ended with the demise of Emperor Haille Selassie I, and the insistent "proof" provided by the presence of a hidden artifact in the Sanctuary Chapel at Mariam Tseyon in Axum, said to be the original Ark of the Covenant. This edition suffers somewhat in omitting Budge's 50-odd page introductory essay, which was rich in historical background and knowledgeable commentary. The interesting part for many, the famed romance between King Solomon and Queen Makeda, is somewhat glossed as the scribe/deacon was in no little hurry to provde a patent of the divine right to rule for the then-current monarch. Scholars might find useful query in whether there is evidence of an older (pre-Christian tale) with interpolations later made to "Christianize" it as the religion of the aristocracy in Ethiopia changed, which might indicate the pedigree of the tale. This is the legend prompting many current sects' preaching of Afrocentric ownership of <"true"> Judaism and Christianity -and Rastafarianism (Haille Selassie's given name was Ras Tafari). Persons looking for a good romance will find here the foundations for Ms. Janice Dennie's series of historical romances such as "Moon Goddess; the Queen of Sheba" and the forthcoming "Menyelik the Conquering Lion" -also available through Amazon!

5-0 out of 5 stars Kebra Ngast and the Aksum empire
The story goes back to a time in history when Ethiopia was a great trading civilzation. The kingdom of Ethiopia of course being tied betweeen the Sabeans and Abyssinians. The story of Saba was greatly absorbed into the lore of the ethiopian people. The Abyssinians adapted christainty under the king Ezra and wrote many sacred book in the native language of Ge'ez. The story encompaes a Queen by the name of Makeda that would give birth to a mighty son named Ras Memelik. Memelik would then lead nations under the Solmanic dynasty that would be ruled in Ethiopia,and giving way to Aksum. I recommend anyone that want to learn about the mystical and magical place known as Ethiopia. The book will take you into the root of Ethiopic soul. I wouldn't Recommend Budge, but the other two versions of this are filled with biased or rastafarinism. If you can get another book by Budge called The Ethiopian book of the dead aka the Bandlement of rightenous. Overall Budge's translation is not all that bad,but sometimes he is not liked because he is one of the White Egyptaintologist who sugested that Egypt had an African origin. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars An easy and informative read on Ancient Egyptian women
The lives of women in ancient Egypt are poorly documented and Barbara Watterson is careful to note the gaps in our knowledge in this well written and very interesting book on the lives of these ancient ladies.

The author points out that Egyptian society was for practical purposes a "man's world" where all the public offices were held by men, but it was the women who held the land (and the right to descent for property).Both men and women were equal before the law and the women of ancient Egypt had many rights before the law that were not granted again in the western world till the late 19th century.

This book discusses male attitudes towards women, as has survived in ancient manuscripts, women in society and law, health and childbirth (where you can be disgusted by the medical remedies), dress and adornment, household duties and women of power such as the four Queens Regent of Egypt and the power and history of the Divine Wives of Amun.

For anyone who is interested in the lives of women in ancient Egypt this book is well researched and informative and makes an interesting read. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great resource for Cleopatra
If pressed, I'd almost say that this is the single best book on Cleopatra.Granted, there are critical biographies, historical accounts, and all sorts of other sources, but this massive book is unique in that it shows nearly every sculpture, coin, or papyrus that can be tied directly to Egypt's last independent ruler.Its fascinating to finally see how Cleopatra presented herself to her subjects -- in traditional Egyptian style for the local population, in Greek style to the Greco-Roman world at large.It's also sobering to see how little remains of her reign.The Romans went after her Greek-style statues, but since they didn't understand Egyptian art, many works of art in that style survive.Besides the impressive visuals, the book includes important essays on many different parts of Cleopatra's reign, life in Alexandria, and the legends that have swirled around Cleopatra after her death. A good comprehensive look at this famous queen, scholarly and readable.But boy, those visuals...! ... Read more
