The book is dealing with the inscriptions of Ramesses III's funerary temple at Medinet Habu, which have long held the interest of scholars. The present author Shlomit Israeli presents and compares in particular the grammar of the three parts: speeches uttered prior to war, presentation of captives and booty to pharaoh, and presentation of captives and booty to Amon. All speeches are fully discussed by focusing the grammatical constructions, their function and meaning, the speech types, the vocabulary, Middle Egyptian grammatical formations and the Ramesside (Late Egyptian) grammatical formations. All texts are given in hieroglyphs, transliteration and translation.
