About the Author
Toby Wilkinson is a prizewinning Egyptologist and the author of Tutankhamun's Trumpet: Ancient Egypt in 100 Objects from the Boy King's Tomb, A World Beneath the Sands: The Golden Age of Egyptology, and the New York Times best seller The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt. He lives in Suffolk, UK.
"The author succeeds in bringing this distant age to life through telling detail and insightful analysis. . . . Whenever he can, the author takes advantage of opportunities to peer beneath the mask."--The Economist

"Ramesses the Great is an authoritative work by one of the great authorities on the subject of Ancient Egypt. This slim volume . . . gives the general reader a great adventure without dry details, exaggeration, and undo speculation."--Robert S. Davis, New York Journal of Books

"In this brilliantly engaging and sympathetic portrait, Toby Wilkinson has harnessed all his investigative and story-telling power to unveil the mystery of the man who became the only Pharaoh in over twenty-six centuries to be given the title 'Great.' In Toby's hands, Ramesses--despite his unique title--feels like a character we all know only too well from the past and the present."--Michael Scott, author of Ancient Worlds: An Epic History of East and West

"To include so much about an amazingly larger-than-life personality within such a small space is a remarkable achievement. A marvel of concise and accurate biography."--John Coleman Darnell, coauthor of Egypt's Golden Couple: When Akhenaten and Nefertiti Were Gods on Earth
