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.
