Editorial Reviews


"Mummies around the World is a fascinating overview that will be enjoyed by those with both a serious and a casual interest in mummies and their history."


"A WorldCat subject search reveals that this encyclopedia on mummies is the first one published in the past ten years. . . . The scientific articles may be the most fascinating, given the advancement of technologies over the last 30 years. The majority of articles treat the mummies of Egypt, if for no other reason than this type of mummy has been ingrained in the Western imagination since Napoleon's invasion. Overall, a good introduction to the subject. Summing Up: Recommended. Undergraduate students and general readers."


"This truly rollicking blend of scientific and pop culture offers facts ranging from actual methods of mummification to an entry on the 1955 movie Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy and includes trivia-fact boxes. An educational and entertaining compendium that is recommended for all 'mummymaniacs' everywhere."
