Hardcover New The greatest challenge to serious science and exploration in the 21st Century is not political unrest in some far-flung, exotic land or the ravages of Nature. It ... is, pure and simple, "funding." Innovative and proven strategies for "getting funded" is the focus of this book, written by two global fundraisers, William F. Vartorella, Ph.D. and Donald S. Keel. They present a unique perspective and decades of experience raising some U.S. $500 million worldwide. Their message is how and why entrepreneurship and niche marketing are crucial to successful fundraising--particularly in times of economic downturns. Their scientific fundraising projects have ranged from the preservation of Egyptian mummies, to healthcare in Eastern Europe, access to historic shipwrecks, the care of Natural Science collections, at-risk offshore and estuary fisheries in developing nations, rainforest biota, GIS applications to historic corridors, etc. Read more Show Less

Overview

Delving into the various chronology issues that divide Egyptologists, this study documents scholarship relating to the third-century B.C. Egyptian priest Manetho. Explored is Manetho's account of his country's history, which contained a wealth of information about ancient Egypt with chronological record of all Egyptian kings from the beginning of the first dynasty to the conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C. No copy of Manetho's original manuscript has been found. This book examines three ancient texts-one from the first-century Jewish historian Josephus, another from the third-century Christian chronographer Africanus, and another from the fourth-century Christian historian Eusebius-that claim to be based on Manetho's history. The ways in which these texts are frequently and substantially inconsistent and at odds with the known chronological record for ancient Egypt are detailed. Covering specific dynasties and providing more general overviews, this book documents the history of and the problems facing Egyptian chronological study.
