Jánosi, Peter, author
New York : The Metropolitan Museum of Art, [2016]
Part one: The temple's history and its decoration -- Part two: Reused blocks originating from the Old Kingdom -- Part three: Reused blocks found in place and originating from the early Twelfth Dynasty -- Part four: Blocks from Amenemhat I's Temple.

"This publication is a continuation of the series documenting The Metropolitan Museum of Art's excavations at the Middle Kingdom Egyptian site at Lisht. This volume covers the relief decoration from three different locations or structures. These reliefs furnish a welcome addition to the little-known relief decoration of pyramid temples of the Middle Kingdom. Presenting previously unpublished materials and including informative, high quality photographs of the relief blocks, this essential resource preserves the decoration at this endangered historic site and makes substantial contributions to the study of Middle Kingdom Egypt." -- Publisher's description.

The documents edited here cover the significant events in the contact, conquest, and pacification of the Nuer from 1898 to 1930. They contain some of the earliest 20th-century ethnographic descriptions of the Nuer and their Dinka and Mabaan neighbors. Together these sources provide a historical context for further understanding Evans-Pritchard's ethnography, as well as a more detailed understanding of the events that led to incorporation of the Nuer into the colonial state.
