ASIATICS IN MIDDLE KINGDOM EGYPT: PERCEPTIONS AND REALITY. Phyllis Saretta. Bloomsbury Academic, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 2016. Bloomsbury Egyptology. 326 pp. with 137 ills. 23 x 16 cm. LC 2015-18680 ISBN 9781780932156 In English.
Publisher's description: The ancient Egyptians had very definite views about their neighbors, some positive, some negative. As one would expect, Egyptian perceptions of 'the other' were subject to change over time, especially in response to changing political, social and economic conditions. Thus, as Asiatics became a more familiar part of everyday life in Egypt, and their skills and goods became increasingly important, depictions of them took on more favorable aspects. The investigation by necessity involves a multi-disciplined approach which seeks to combine and synthesize data from a wider variety of sources than drawn upon in earlier studies. By the same token, the book addresses the interests of, and has appeal to, a broad spectrum of scholars and general readers.
