The Children of the Sun: A Study of the Egyptian Settlement of the Pacific
by W. A. Perry
Book Description: A reprint of the rare 1923 book first published by Methuen & Co. in London -- a classic on the ancient Sun Kingdoms of Egypt and India and their voyages into Indonesia and the Pacific circa 1500 BC--with 16 ancient maps! Unlike many modern historians, Perry was a diffusionist who believed that modern civilization began in Egypt and was spread via ships to Indonesia, the Pacific Islands, and even to North America. Perry traces the origin of megalithic culture starting in Egypt, and then across the Pacific. Searching for gold, obsidian, and pearls, they travelled across the Pacific to the American Southwest and Mexico. Chapters include: 
*The Children of the Sun
*The Coming of the Warriors
*Rulers and Commoners: The Sky World
*The Dual OrganizationùEgypt and India
*The Dual Organization: Indonesia and Oceania
*The Totemic Clan System
*The Origin of the Archaic Civilization

By Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval
In this riveting account of historical and archaeological investigation, the authors present hard evidence that the Sphinx, the Pyramids, and the other monuments at Giza are of far more ancient origin than previously believed. Complete with evidence of a conspiracy between the Egyptology establishment and various confidential organizations to keep the secrets of the Pyramids from the world, The Message of the Sphinx is also a modern-day detective story.

The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt (Oxford Illustrated Histories)
by Ian Shaw (Editor)
One of the most vexing problems in Egyptology is the question of establishing reliable chronologies, whether through relative methods such as stratigraphy and the dating of artifacts or through more absolute time horizons established by astronomical ephemera or radiometric dating. In this overview of ancient Egypt--meant for advanced students, but accessible to general readers with an interest in the area--Ian Shaw and 13 contributors pay close attention to issues of chronology, reconciling conflicts of dating that mark older scholarship. While doing so, they address other problems in the study of ancient Egypt, such as the lack of material evidence of early humans in the region and the increasing destruction of sites in the face of contemporary urban growth. Elsewhere, they remark on the principal developments that distinguish periods in Egyptian prehistory, such as the Old Kingdom's use of large-scale building projects to consolidate power and "remind people of the greatness of pharaonic civilization," and the Middle and New kingdoms' apparent openness to foreigners, which lent Egypt a cosmopolitan, multicultural air that persisted for centuries during long periods of domination by outside powers such as Persia and Rome. Highly useful as a reference and survey, this handsomely illustrated book is a fine addition to any Egyptophile's collection. --Gregory McNamee -
