Breasts - Sexy, Sacred or Secular my dissertation on Ancient Egypt now for sale

My dissertation has been marked, and I got some great comments, so now I can sell it. It is called Breasts - Sexy, Sacred or Secular and it explores the Ancient Egyptian attitude towards the breast and the conclusion was not what I expected at all. :)

I did analysis of love poetry, pornographic papyrus and graffiti. I looked at the portrayal of the breast in art, both 2-D and 3-D.  Goddesses, both tree and cow, suckling Pharaohs and the dead. Breast cancer was explored as well as the use of wet nurses.And I didn’t leave out the men either, man boobs get looked at! The most interesting thing I learned was the impact of breast feeding and I discuss this in my conclusion.

Here is the link so you can buy it http://www.egyptologycourses.com/products/breasts-sexy-sacred-or-secular/

We are hoping the sales from this book will keep us going until tourism picks up this winter. Fingers crossed

Dear Jane,
I just bought/downloaded your eBoo(b)k. Much respect that you have the "guts" to choose this topic!!!
I'm a dutch dentist with a passion for Egypt. Since 2000 I visit Luxor often, sometimes as a guide with a group of 6-8 persons. Our homebase is Nile Valley Hotel; Abu el Naga as our cabdriver. In 2001 I was one of the founders of the Friends of Saqqara foundation for donations for the dutch excavations in Saqqara (in 1975 started with the EES-Geoffey Martin). If you like I will send my comments on your eBook after reading. Best regards, Jack Minderaa
