Akhenaten: King of Egypt
(London & New York: Thames & Hudson, 1988), 320 pp., 107 illustrations, $35.00
Cyril Aldreds Akhenaten: King of Egypt is definitely not a mere revision of his 1968 book Akhenaten, Pharaoh of Egypt, despite the initial reaction of this reviewer and many others. Indeed, neither the dust jacket nor Aldred himself even notes the publication of the earlier work. With a few exceptions, the new book represents a thorough reworking, rewriting and updating of the materials related to Akhenaten.
