In that reguard it serves its purpose and more. The maps are extremely easy to follow, clearly labelled and idenitified, colorful, and most of all- informative. One can tell so much about a period of history by analyzing a map, particularly several which have trade routes, battle sites, important roads and cultural sites CLEARLY marked. Who could ask for anything more! This atlas is wonderful, and is, I repeat, an atlas.
Anyways? What kind of person sits down and reads an atlas? I mean, seriously, its just a reference book, its not a novel. Its not supposed to tell wonderful stories and dazzle you with vibrant facts, its just maps, and anything else, is extra.
simplify its huge complexities over 3,000 and more years. Its history is
mainly known through Manetho, an Egyptian priest who wrote in Greek
from sources he could not identify. Known not in Manetho's writing but
in references in the works of non-Egyptian writers, like Josephus. Bill
Manley has put together an historical atlas that combines pages of informed
textual information and engaging maps. There are gaps in his coverage, and
not everyone will agree with some of his descriptions or map borderlines. For
example, he is not very clear on the pre-Israelites and the Israelites. Sad to say,
neither is anybody else. But this is as good an historical atlas of ancient Egypt
as there is.
