Reseña del editor
During the half-millennium from the eleventh through the sixth centuries BC, the power and the glory of the imperial pharaohs of the New Kingdom crumbled in the face of internal crises and external pressures, ultimately reversed by invaders from Nubia and consolidated by natives of the Nile Delta following a series of Assyrian invasions.
Much of this era remains obscure, with little consensus among Egyptologists. Against this background, Aidan Dodson reconsiders the evidence and proposes a number of new solutions to the problems of the period. He also considers the art, architecture, and archaeology of the period, including the royal tombs of Tanis, one of which yielded the intact burials of no fewer than five pharaohs. The book is extensively illustrated with images of this material, much of which is little known to non-specialists of the period.
By the author of the bestselling Amarna Sunset and Poisoned Legacy.

Después de muchos años, un libro dedicado al final de la dinastía XX y el comienzo de la XXI en Egipto se hacía necesario; este es excelente.

Now after all these years I am and forever will be an amateur when it comes to Ancient Egyptian studies. I make money doing a whole different thing. If you are or plan to be a scholar of Ancient Egypt and/or this period in its history then I would strongly recommend this book to you. If you are a casual reader I'd say the opposite. If you are in between, well, then I'd say be prepared perhaps to get frustrated with the amount of detail for its own sake and stay clear on what you are looking for in the book. Be ready to draw your own generalizations and conclusions, because the author sticks to his descriptive, fact-oriented microscope. In sum, I think the book is a valuable addition to inferentially understanding the "afterglow" and centuries' long downhill slide of Ancient Egypt from a micro viewpoint, with "I didn't know thats" sprinkled throughout. But it is not an easy read.
Mr. Dodson has written several other books - including The Poisoned Legacy- which deals in great detail on the later periods in Ancient Egyptian History. This one covers this late period in great detail - almost too much so.
Still, it is a period that has been neglected in the past and Mr. Dodson corrects that oversight.
Mainly for hard-core Egyptology enthusiasts.
