The architecture of imperialism : military bases and the evolution of foreign policy in Egypt's New Kingdom by Ellen Fowles Morris( )

20 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume traces the evolution of New Kingdom foreign policy in Syria-Palestine, Nubia, and Libya through an analysis of the distribution of Egyptian military bases over time and across borders." "Archaeological and textual evidence pertaining to fortress towns, forts, border checkpoints, and military headquarters is analyzed in order to illuminate the ever-shifting strategies employed by the Egyptian government to rule its subject territories." "Exhaustive in its scope and illustrated throughout with numerous maps and architectural plans, this book should interest Egyptologists, Near Eastern archaeologists and historians, as well as anthropologists engaged in the comparative study of early empires and military tactics."--BOOK JACKET
Ancient Egyptian imperialism by Ellen Fowles Morris( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offers a broad and unique look at Ancient Egypt during its long age of imperialism Written for enthusiasts and scholars of pharaonic Egypt, as well as for those interested in comparative imperialism, this book provides a look at some of the most intriguing evidence for grand strategy, low-level insurgencies, back-room deals, and complex colonial dynamics that exists for the Bronze Age world. It explores the actions of a variety of Egypt's imperial governments from the dawn of the state until 1069 BCE as they endeavored to control fiercely independent mountain dwellers in Lebanon, urban populations in Canaan and Nubia, highly mobile Nilotic pastoralists, and predatory desert raiders. The book is especially valuable as it foregrounds the reactions of local populations and their active roles in shaping the trajectory of empire. With its emphasis on the experimental nature of imperialism and its attention to cross-cultural comparison and social history, this book offers a fresh perspective on a fascinating subject. Organized around central imperial themes--which are explored in depth at particular places and times in Egypt's history--Ancient Egyptian Imperialism covers: Trade Before Empire--Empire Before the State (c. 3500-2686); Settler Colonialism (c. 2400-2160); Military Occupation (c. 2055-1775); Creolization, Collaboration, Colonization (c. 1775-1295); Motivation, Intimidation, Enticement (c. 1550-1295); Organization and Infrastructure (c. 1458-1295); Outwitting the State (c. 1362-1332); Conversions and Contractions in Egypt's Northern Empire (c. 1295-1136); and Conversions and Contractions in Egypt's Southern Empire (c. 1550-1069). Offers a wider focus of Egypt's experimentation with empire than is covered by general Egyptologists Draws analogies to tactics employed by imperial governments and by dominated peoples in a variety of historically documented empires, both old world and new Answers questions such as "how often and to what degree did imperial blueprints undergo revisions?" Ancient Egyptian Imperialism is an excellent text for students and scholars of history, comparative history, and ancient history, as well for those interested in political science, anthropology, and the Biblical World

This study explores the subject of New Kingdom foreign policy via a comprehensive examination of the fortresses and administrative headquarters that the Egyptians erected on their borders and in foreign territory. The topic is approached through a gathering and synthesis of both textual and archaeological data as it exists for the early, middle, and late Eighteenth Dynasty, as well as for the Nineteenth and Twentieth Dynasties. Such a chronological division affords a clear insight into the evolution of Egypt's imperial priorities and tactics. Further, the frontiers of Syria-Palestine, Nubia, and Libya are all considered within this work to compose a more comprehensive picture and to allow for an examination as to how the imperial policies practiced on one frontier influenced policies later enacted in another.From this study it can be seen that the Egyptians employed four major types of military base. (1) At the points at which the Nile Valley could be easily penetrated, they erected htm-fortresses. These entities served largely to monitor and regulate the passage of people and goods across Egypt's border. (2) On the coastal road to Libya and in Nubia, the Egyptians constructed fortress-towns (mnnw or dmiw)--abiding by the philosophy that a potential enemy, like a crocodile, can snatch from a lonely road but cannot seize from a populous town. (3) The construction of modestly sized forts is limited to the highway along the Ways of Horus. These structures served to protect wells and foodstuffs, but were of little utility against a truly threatening foe. (4) In the Eastern Sinai and in Syria-Palestine, the Egyptians occupied administrative headquarters. These unfortified enclaves were generally commandeered from vassals in the Eighteenth Dynasty. It was only in the Nineteenth Dynasty, then, that the Egyptians began in earnest to sponsor the construction of permanent bases in Palestine. This policy shift, it is argued, stemmed from a post-Amarna administrative reform that affected both Egypt and its foreign territories equally
