About the Author

Ronald T. Ridley is professor emeritus at the School of Historical Studies, University of Melbourne. He is the author of twenty books and over one hundred articles. His main interest is the history of the ancient world, particularly Egypt and Rome.


"[W]ill be consumed with gusto by both fans and foes of Akhenaten and the Amarna episode of Egyptian history."--Marianne Eaton-Krauss, Bibliotheca Orientalis

"Ronald T. Ridley's study of Akhenaten sounds a cautionary note (a whole concert?) against anyone making claims on the distant past. He recounts dozens of conflicting theories on the ruler (supposedly the world's first monotheist) and dispenses with most of them." --David Lauhrssen, Sheperd Express
