Alexandria : the site & the history by Mursi Saad El Din ( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Soon after its founding, Alexander moved the capital of Egypt from Memphis to Alexandria. Mostafa El-Abbadi provides a rare description of the ancient city plan and illuminates the dynamics that shaped the city for the next millennium. Under the patronage of Alexander's successors, the Ptolemies, Alexandria became a center of world scholarship and trade. Like the Great Lighthouse, the Great Library of Alexandria was one of the most spectacular the world has ever seen. The library was the largest in antiquity and sparked a renaissance of human culture. El-Abbadi traces the physicality, growth, contributions and fate of the Great Library and its research center, the Mouseion. He tackles the question of its destruction and offers evidence that it was Christian fanatics who ransacked and burned it in 391 A.D. rather than the Arabs, later, as commonly accepted

The eternal army : the terracotta soldiers of the first Chinese emperor by Roberto Ciarla ( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Qin Shi Huangdi's "eternal army" continues to guard the mystery of one of the most controversial figures in history. Arrayed in silent and immobile ranks for 22 centuries, they have remained faithful beyond the grave, as the emperor would have wished. Despite the constantly growing number and exceptional quality of finds in the enormous imperial funeral complex, scholars are still puzzled as to the real personality of the unifier of China. Was he a cruel tyrant, as suggested by historical sources, a crazed megalomaniac, or one of the most capable, innovative and determined rulers in history? And what exactly was the purpose of his impressive buried army? This far-ranging and clearly written book presents the findings of acknowledged experts as they seek to provide answers to the many fascinating questions, placing this exceptional heritage in its historical, archaeological and artist context, retracing the roots of Qin Shi Huangdi's great political design and analyzing the cultural and philosophical panorama of the period before the first unification of China. The Eternal Army not only presents the wholly individualized faces of the great officers, horsemen, archers, and foot soldiers of the terracotta army, but also sketches a revealing portrait of an uncommon man and the nation he managed to create, fulfilling an ancient dream destined to survive unaltered to the present day."--BOOK JACKET
