Críticas:

"Donald Redford is one of the few scholars in Egyptology blessed with the ability to convey complex ideas in a lively manner that engages the attention of lay readers. At the same time, his historical insights and depth of knowledge are widely respected in the field, and in his new work, he shows why."

(Ogden Goelet, New York University)

"This engrossing narrative takes us away from the modern racial politics into a world strikingly different from our own, where war and conquest were a present reality, and Egyptians and Nubians regarded each other as foreigners. Donald Redford shows us why historical writing, if it is to be truly informative, must always be based directly on ancient documents and accurate understanding of the archaeological evidence."

(Mary Lefkowitz, author of Not Out of Africa and co-editor of Black Athena Revisited)

"The first full-scale study in English of relations between Egypt and Nubia in antiquity... Trenchant and illuminating observations abound."

(Choice)

"A welcome addition... Professor Redford has demonstrated that more obscure material can be presented in a way that is fresh, exciting and accessible."

(Chris Naunton Egyptian Archaeology)

"A detailed but spirited account of a theme that has often been marred by tendentiousness and partial thinking."

(John Ray American Historical Review)

"From Slave to Pharaoh presents a lively account of this period of Nubian rule during Egypt's 25th Dynasty."

(Mariam Ayad Odyssey)

"A timely contribution to the rapidly growing literature on Nubian and Sudanese studies."

(Richard A. Lobban, Jr. International Journal of African Historical Studies)

"A well-argued synthesis for this period, its politics, administration, and building activity."

(Arthur Verhoogt Bulletin of the American Society of Papryologists)

"An easily readable volume that offers considerable insight into a convoluted period of Egyptian history."

(Jacke Phillips Journal of African History)

"A welcome addition... There is much that should stimulate interest in this fascinating area."

(David Edwards Chronique d'Égypte)
