Editorial Reviews


'the series is well organized, informative and comprehensive. Through careful analysis of a multiplicity of sources at hand, the authors, who come from a great variety of disciplines, have presented us with a series that is at once substantial as well as engaging and innovative. An extraordinary work of synthesis, the series promises to endure as an important contribution to the study of Ancient Egypt. - Professor Ronald J Leprohon, Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilisation, University of Toronto. '<"Never Had the Like Occurred" examines how the Egyptians viewed their won past and used it to inspire and inform their present at different stages in their history. There are relatively few publications dealing with Egypt's view of her own past or indeed material culture. Jan Assman's The Mind of Egypt (2002) is one of the few to examine such territory, and the present volume will forma welcome addition to that body of work. A paper by David O'Connor on "Egypt's view of 'Other"', which could almost equally well have been part of Mysterious Lands, serves only to emphasis the relatedness of these volumes.'- Times Higher Educational Supplement, 17 December 2004
