The rich and diverse written evidence found in tombs of the Middle Kingdom and Second Intermediate Period is mined in this collection of articles for the light they shed on attitudes towards life and the afterlife in a complex historical period, when society underwent profound shifts. The topics include both broad overviews--with articles on the principles of decoration of Middle Kingdom stelae, mitre inscriptions on coffins, and multiple burials--to case studies, including an article on rishi coffins. A group of b&w plates and many drawings are included. There is no index. Distributed in North America by The David Brown Book Co. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
