This work studies the relationship between the king and Maat, the personification of "truth," as documented in reliefs of the New Kingdom and Third Intermediate Period. It includes a detailed study of the chronology, iconography, and theology of the ritual of offering Maat and the royal name equated with Maat. Central to the volume is an investigation of the construction of, and variations in, the offering formulas and what modifications in those texts reflect about the status of the king and about the relevance of Maat to ethics in the Ramesside period.

Maat is the moral ideal of ancient Egypt whose texts contain information on Egypt's moral standards, its concepts of right from wrong, codes of behaviour and obligations. Written by a teacher of the tradition of Maat, this study is the `first philosophical book that is based on a philologically and historically critical treatment of first-hand Egyptian material'. Focusing on the Maatian ideal rather than moral practices, Karenga discusses what Maat is and its place within the genre of philosophical ethics and morality, asking what it can contribute to modern African culture and values. Extracts are transcribed and translated into English.

Voice, Text, Hypertext illustrates brilliantly why interest in textual studies has grown so dramatically in recent years. For the distinguished authors of these essays, a �text� is more than a document or material object. It is a cultural event, a matrix of decisions, an intricate cultural practice that may focus on religious traditions, modern �underground� literary movements, poetic invention, or the irreducible complexity of cultural politics. Drawing from classical Roman and Indian to modern European traditions, the volume makes clear that to study a text is to study a culture. It also demonstrates the essential importance of heightened textual awareness for contemporary cultural studies and critical theory�and, indeed, for any discipline that studies human culture.
