Editorial Reviews

Review

A specialist in early modern history, Sweeney (West U., Romania) here continues his reconstruction of ancient history drawing on the scholarship of Immanual Velikovsky during the 1950s, but correcting the errors introduced by his mistaking the Bible for a historical record. This third volume focuses on the 18th, or Theban Dynasty in Egypt. He project four volumes, five counting the volume on Arthur. --Reference & Research Book News

Format: Hardcover
Having read several other books by Sweeney, I think I am competent enough to say that this volume is the weakest of the bunch. It's not that the arguments presented in it are invalid. I agree wholeheartedly with the basic premise that the Hittites and Lydians were the same people; and likewise that the Assyrians and Neo-Assyrians were two images of the same people, and numerous other such claims, all suggesting that Ancient history is not as old as we think it is. At the root of Sweeney's argument is that the Dark Ages imposed on us by archaeologists, who themselves were operating with a flawed and greatly inflated Egyptian history, are completely bogus, as are the separation of various peoples (known to us under different names). That's all made very clear. What I don't like in this particular volume is the presentation. The author's style of argumentation appears to be aimed at the common man, i.e. at someone not very informed about the ancient Middle East. And yet the vast amounts of names and facts being thrown around will be overwhelming to all but a true student of Ancient History. Also, some of the linguistic and archaeological evidence presented, while valid, will fall flat simply because few people will even understand it. Certainly more effort should have been taken to first illustrate Ancient History as is, then explain its many flaws, then start to deconstruct it, rather than just deconstruct it on the fly. Still, if you are interested in Ancient History and, like myself, want to learn the truth after being fed lies all your life, you HAVE TO READ THIS! One advise I would give to those who are up to the task is to read the volumes in order, and start with Genesis of Israel and Egypt and then the very eye-opening Pyramid Age.

Sweeney's series if weak on analysis and lacks specifically proposed dates.
