Editorial Reviews

Choice
The Ancient Kingdom of Kush (third century BCE to the fourth century CE, with earlier traces) and Axum (fourth century CE to the seventh century CE)...were reflections of ancient Egypt to the north, but with the collapse of Egypt, Kush flourished and then gave way to Axum. Scholarly interest in these two essentially unknown kingdoms has waxed greatly in the past three decades, with special museum exhibits and permanent installations, as interest in inland Africa has developed with marked significance. Burstein opens the volume with a brief survey of the two kingdoms; with introductions and important notes he then presents the ancient literary and epigraphical testimony for this region...A brief bibliography and photographs aid this significant volume.
