Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Grant's 1972 portrait of the Egyptian monarch paints her as more than just a vamp. A multifaceted woman, she was knowledgeable about everything from politics to agriculture. Her endeavors to rebuild her failing empire, however, never came to fruition. The text is buttressed with numerous illustrations. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
