Most readable account of history, culture, religion of Egypt 10. Mai 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Breasted's account of the history, culture, and religion of ancient Egypt stands, to this day, as a rare example of scientific writing that is also tremenduously entertaining to read. Never dry, this book is lively, vividly evoking images of the subjects described. Though research into ancient Egypt in the decades since this book was originally written has made many important discoveries, the essential value of this book, its capability to enlighten the reader on one of the great cultures of human civilization, has not diminished.

As a writer, Breasted might have excelled at almost any genre of literature he might have selected. His work as a serious historian allowed him to use his skill as a writer to make otherwise perhaps esoteric material available to a broad range of readers, asking not much more from the reader than the capability to simply enjoy a good book.

Fascinating (but maybe outdated) 16. März 2003
Von Bibliophile - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
My copy is the Bantam 1964 reprint of the 1905 classic. Almost a hundred years old, this book still reads surprisingly easily. Whether it's out of date or not, I'm in no position to judge, not being an expert in this field. But I'd assume that a lot of archaeological discoveries must have been made in the last century to make this book somewhat obsolete.
Breasted was the first and foremost American Egyptologist, the founder of the prestigious Oriental Institute of Chicago (the premier archaeology academy in America - featured in Indiana Jones), and the first archaeologist elected to the National Academy of Sciences.(He was also a former President of the American Historical Association, and must have been the only person to have both honors.) I particularly like his opinions of Thuthmosis III, whose 3450th passing is today.
Two other books that may shed some light on the recent findings are "Egypt of the Pharaohs" by Sir Alan Gardiner and "The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt" edited by Ian Shaw.

A Shoddy Reproduction 12. Mai 2011
Von Will T. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The content of A History of Egypt is without peer and essential to ones understanding of this ancient civilization. However, the reproduction of the original text and photographs is unworthy of its author and his work. Broken type, such as many a dot-less lower-case "i" and arm-less lower case "r" is a constant irritant and source of confusion throughout its 600 pages. The original photographs have lost much valuable detail, bordering on worthlessness. A long-ago reader's inane underlining, imbedded in the source text, is carefully preserved in defiance of our digital age. Surely a better source copy could have been found resulting in a cleaner edition, I am appalled to think that Amazon would permit such a shoddy reproduction to leave its premises without due warning.

The First and Best 19. Januar 2001
Von "momteacher" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
While his translations are slightly dated because of new linguistic discoveries, there is still no other work that can compare to James Breasted's monumental "History of Ancient Egypt." It is an indispensable work for novice and expert alike. There are many epigones to this book, but not many are equal to it. It is stylish in manner, which captivates the reader's interest and holds it through many, many pages - no little feat! I would highly recommend this book to any one wishing to discover ancient Egyptian culture, whether your studies are inchoate or advanced. It is marvellous!

Much Beloved 2. August 2003
Von Marc Ruby™ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Back when I first read Breasted's history it was already 60 years old. I was 14 and much enamored of this ancient culture that I knew mostly from horror movies and eerie museum displays. Cruising the library shelves I found this ponderous volume and dived into it. Starting a lifelong habit of always picking the heaviest book. Of course, the book was out of date then, and today it is more a document of the turn of the century mythology about ancient Egypt than it is anything that qualifies as 'history.'
And yet, in many ways it entirely changed the world of a fourteen year old child - whose horizons were suddenly broadened in a multitude of directions. Breasted bridges the gap between tedious academic history and popular and simpleminded glosses. He is always conscious that the facts he narrates are a telescopic look into a culture almost completely alien from what we are today. His simple, direct style has brought the old world alive for the curious for almost a century now.
If his thinking seems a bit naïve now, it is important to understand that there has been a wealth of discovery in the intervening years. And this book was one of the inspirations that fueled that pursuit of knowledge, drawing people's attention to the mysterious past, and inspiring countless readers to look further. Look elsewhere for accurate material, but come here to see ithe excitement in the archeologist's mind.
