Therefore, ...
Research Essays on Ancient Egypt is a collection of early essays written by the author, Dr. Frederick Monderson, and expanded for a series of lectures delivered, during February, Black History Month, 2004, at the St. John's Recreation Center in Brooklyn, New York. The Table of Contents labels the chapters Introduction I, II, III and IV; Who were the Egyptians?; The Religion of Ancient Egypt; The Egyptian Temple; History of Egypt; The Archaeology of Ancient Egypt; The Architecture of Ancient Egypt; The Power of One; Metals, Men and Materials; The Art of Ancient Egypt; Egyptian Warfare; Egyptian Technology; Science in Ancient Egypt; Gold of Egypt; Pharaonic Taxation; The King; The Conspiracy Against Ancient Egypt; and, Suggestions for Further Reading.
A historian by training and Egyptologist by vocation, the author dedicated an inordinate amount of time focusing on the quintessential nuts and bolts issues that contributed to the totality of ancient Egyptian civilization. The first two Introductions deal with the "emergence of man in Africa," having taught this for years; while the second addresses changes encountered in 2005 as contemporary Egyptians further modernized their facilities and become stricter about the ancient monuments. Egypt 2008 and Egypt 2010 as Introductions III and IV bring the reader up to the most modern developments in the ancient land and elaborates on restriction now being placed on visitors to the monuments.
The other essays are extensively researched, to essentially add fuel to the pro and con discussion regarding the nature and dynamics of the "Origins of the Egyptians" and "The Conspiracy Against Ancient Egypt." More importantly, however, a great deal is presented to highlight and add color to the technical, cultural, religious and philosophic aspects of the Egyptian experience that has endeared this ancient African culture in the minds and hearts of humanity, down through the ages, and still it retains a magnetic attraction to this day. The photographs, illustrations, plans, papyrus art and entrance tickets of temples create an enjoyable pictorial imagery of the phenomenal civilization of Egypt/Kemet/Tawi in all its timelessness. This is indeed a highly comprehensive and informative yet easily readable book that provides food for thought for the student, the scholar and the general reader.
