Silent images : women in Pharaonic Egypt by Zahi Abass Hawass( Book )
18 editions published between 1995 and 2008 in English and held by 821 libraries worldwide
"Hawass contrasts the stereotype - inspired by such symbols of femininity as the queens Nefertiti and Nefertari - with a more realistic view of the common woman's everyday involvement in matters ranging from family life to dress and adornment to the workplace. While their chief role in society was as mothers, women were the legal equals of men and they could, and did, own property. Silent Images sheds new light on ancient Egypt's distinctive culture."--BOOK JACKET

The golden age of Tutankhamun : divine might and splendor in the New Kingdom by Zahi Hawass( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 181 libraries worldwide
"Tutankhamun has fascinated the world ever since Howard Carter's spectacular discovery of his treasure-filled tomb in the Valley of the Kings in 1922. Egypt's leading Egyptologist, Zahi Hawass, here tells the story of this golden king, a short-lived pharaoh who came to the throne of Egypt as a child and died before the age of twenty, and of the royal dynasty that bred him. The reader meets Tutankhamun's grandparents, the Sun King Amenhotep III and his beautiful wife Tiye as well as the boy-king's 'heretic' father, Akhenaten, his stepmother Neferiti, and his half-sisters, the sun-kissed princesses of Amarna. Tutankhamun lived and died during one of the most fascinating periods in Egyptian history; this book provides a window into this extraordinary time of turmoil and treasure." "The Golden Age of Tutankhamun is illustrated, primarily with photographs of objects from the traveling exhibit. "Tutankhamun and the Golden Beyond: Treasures from the Valley of the Kings," which takes objects from Cairo's Egyptian Museum collections to Switzerland and Japan. Many of these photographs were taken by National Geographic photographer Kenneth Garrett, supplemented by archival photographs from the era of the tomb's discovery, a fascinating period of transition - in archaeology as much as politics - between the age of colonialism and the dawn of Egyptian nationalism."--Jacket
The mysteries of Abu Simbel : Ramesses II and the temples of the Rising Sun by Zahi A Hawass( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 168 libraries worldwide
"The temples of Abu Simbel have fascinated travelers since they became known to the Western world in the nineteenth century. And since the 1960s when the rising waters created by the Aswan High Dam threatened to engulf the site, visitors' imaginations have been captivated by the elaborate international rescue operation, described by the author as "a great moment that no one will ever forget: the most advanced technology of the twentieth century was used to save one of the most amazing achievements of a civilization that preceeded it by 3,300 years."" "Special features of this book include: Bilingual edition in English and Arabic; Brief, clear history of the ancient kingdom of Nubia and its relationship with Egypt; Description and explanation of the High Dam project - a modern national project on the scale of the pyramids themselves; Extensive details of the salvage operation of the temples at Abu Simbel; An informative biography of Ramesses II, including information regarding his massive building programs, military campaigns, and his family affairs; and Detailed descriptions of the artistic highlights in both the southern temple, dedicated to Ramesses himself, and the northern temple, dedicated to his great queen, Nefertari."--Jacket

The Egyptian Museum in Cairo is a world-renowned treasure house filled with some of the ancient world's most precious artifacts, including the famed burial mask of King Tutankhamun and the Royal Mummies of Luxor. The museum's collection is so large that it lacks the space to exhibit all its relics-some items haven't been seen since they were excavated from Egypt's archaeological sites as far back as 100 years ago. Locked away in dusty crates, scores of priceless artifacts remain all but forgotten in the museum's basement-until now. What secrets does the museum hold?
