Pretty good textbook. I especially found Chapter 5 interesting: The Kushite Revival. If you are looking to dive into the history of Nubia, this will take you there. Cross reference it with other books, but this is a nice start. Read full review

One of the few concise, recent archaeological histories of ancient Nubia. Sparse on illustrations and possibly a bit dense or overly technical for the non-specialist, but still an excellent resource, especially the extensive bibliography. Read full review
