The Star Who Appears in Thebes. Studies in Honour of Jiro Kondo
Nozomu Kawai & Benedict G. Davies (eds)
Marking the retirement from Waseda University of Professor Jiro Kondo, this collection of thirty-seven essays, written by friends, colleagues and former students — including many world-renowned academics — serves as a timely recognition of the career and achievements of one of Japan’s most distinguished and well-respected Egyptologists. Many of the contributions presented in this Festschrift volume are devoted to the exploration of themes which are closely aligned with Professor Kondo’s own main research areas — the archaeology of Ancient Egypt, the reign and monumental art of the 18th Dynasty pharaoh Amenhotep III, and the development of west Theban royal and private tombs of the New Kingdom. These contributions include a wealth of new archaeological discoveries, unpublished material, and new interpretations and perspectives concerning a wide range of subjects. The volume is abundantly illustrated with colour photographs, maps and line drawings.
