"Whose Pharaohs?: Archæology, Museums, and Egyptian National Identity from Napoleon to World War I," dealing with the interplay between archaeology and national identity from the Rosetta Stone to World War I.
Now I've learned that the sequel is due out later this year: "Contesting Antiquity in Egypt: Archaeologies, Museums, and the Struggle for Identities from World War I to Nasser," pursuing the theme from the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb to the Nasser era. It should be fascinating.
Professor Reid mentioned in a recent e-mail that he sometimes reads my blog, so if you see this, Don, know that I'm looking forward to reading it, and am accordingly plugging it here.
