Book cover of THE GOOD KINGS by Kara Cooney.

Written in the tradition of historians like Stacy Schiff and Amanda Foreman who find modern lessons in ancient history, this provocative narrative explores the lives of five remarkable pharaohs who ruled Egypt with absolute power, shining a new light on the country’s 3,000-year empire and its meaning today. From Khufu, the man who built the Great Pyramid at Giza as testament to his authoritarian reign, and Taharqa, the last true pharaoh who worked to restore Egypt’s greatness, we discover a clear lens into understanding how power was earned, controlled, and manipulated in ancient times.
