Has anyone read this?: Thutmose III: A New Biography by Eric Cline & David O'Connor. I haven't read it although I'm seriously thinking of getting it, but it's really expensive, so I was wondering if anyone had any views on it before I purchase it. Very Happy

I have it and it's a very interesting read. There are several chapters written by different authors.

From atleest.com:
"* Thutmose III includes an overview of his life, and detailed examinations of civil administration, the religion and cults, the monumental architecture and royal building program, royal tombs and iconography, royal portraiture and ideology, the artistic production, the Northern and Southern campaigns, as well as the Aegean and other foreign visitors to Egypt during Thutmose's time. Finally, the book concludes with a look at the end of his reign and the accession of Amenhotep II."

That sounds like a book I would just love.

Especially liked the look of this chapter:
"11 Foreigners in Egypt in the time of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III / Diamantis Panagiotopoulos 370"

and this one:

"3 Administration in the reign of Thutmose III / Betsy M. Bryan 69 "

but really they all look fascinating Very Happy
