Reviews

"It is the rare book that not only is beautiful but also fills a significant gap in scholarly literature... Life and Death in Ancient Egypt will be an essential reference for all persons interested in New Kingdom art and funerary cult, and it belongs in the libraries of all colleges and universities."-Choice "Aiming to be more than a guidebook but less than a scientific publication for scholars, this volume updates the 1991 German edition with an introductory chapter reflecting new work at Thebes and including far more and far better plates than the original version, significantly adding to its value."-Denise M. Doxey, Religious Studies Review "Eleven Theban tombs ... are beautifully presented and illustrated... This first English translation is a wonderful addition to public and private libraries. This book should be required reading for art lovers, Egyptophiles and travellers alike."-Frankie's Bibliography of Ancient Egypt "The private rock tombs of ancient Thebes comprise an important corpus for the study of ancient Egyptian life as well as of the genius of New Kindgdom painting. This work presents a selection of these tombs with interwoven commentaries on history, theology, and esthetic theory... It is a competent and enthusiastic introduction not only to the tombs but also to the culture that produced them. Cornell University Press is to be congratulated on including this volume in their ongoing project of bringing German and French Egyptological works to an English speaking public."- Lana Troy, Journal of the American Oriental Society
