Descripción del producto
"Illustrated with clear, color photos of artifacts and sites as well as colorful maps...this provides an accessible introduction to Hatshepsut and her times." --Booklist
Reseña del editor
She was the Egyptian girl who became a master politician and a supreme stateswoman. Inheriting her father's throne along with her young stepson, Hatshepsut was soon crowned pharaoh in her own right. This is the startling tale of a woman's rise to power within the patriarchal society of ancient Egypt: Hatshepsut was shrewdly conveyed as a masculine ruler in all public statues and artwork, and donned male dress and a false beard in person. She ruled Egypt for decades, claiming her rightful place in the history of this great civilization.

For the most part, it is very clearly and carefully written. I found the presentation balanced: the author doesn't fawn on Hatshepsut as a woman outdoing all men (although she was a very successful pharaoh), nor does she become overwrought about a woman seizing the crown (an act which is apparently far more upsetting to modern historians than to her subjects.) The author is careful to point out the many uncertainties of dates and events, without letting it bog down the narrative. There are all sorts of interesting little tidbits of information scattered throughout.
A fairly minor complaint: I find the layout somewhat odd. The timeline running across the bottom of the book doesn't match up to the text. I can see some of the problems that they faced, but they could certainly have done better. I don't know why the sidebar on the excavators was stuck between "Dress at Court" and "Egyptian Education"; it was a little jarring.
A somewhat more serious flaw is that there really isn't too much about her reign. There are a couple pages on the journey to the Land of Punt, one of her triumphs, and a good deal of information about her favorite, Senenmut, but not much else for what was presumably the most active 22 years of her life. For this reason, I wouldn't recommend it to adults who want a brief biography.
The book includes an index, glossary, bibliography and reference to a number of different websites.
