Thutmose III's (15th c. B.C.) suitable and sensible new policy lay the basis for Egypt's empire in Syria and Palestine. Main source of our knowledge on this formative period stems from the so-called Annals of this king in the inner chambers of the great Karnak temple of Amun. Part One contains a new collation of these Annals, along with a hand-copy of the inscription, textual analysis and commentary. In Part Two the reader will find new translations together with commentary on additional sources bearing on the wars: the king's speeches, royal encomia, and private biographies. The volume concludes with an historical commentary, and places the wars in their historical context. A comprehensive, illuminating and accessible assessment of Egypt's policy in Syria and Palestine.
