The Ages in Alignment series seeks to resolve contradictions in accepted theories of history, and concludes that all the ancient civilizations arose simultaneously around 1100 BC. This, Volume 1, examines the archaeological evidence for the Flood and the rise of the first literate cultures in the wake of the catastrophe and traces the story of the great migration which led groups of early Mesopotamians westward toward Egypt. A few generations later Imhotep is shown to be the same person as Joseph, son of Jacob.

"Empire of Thebes is the starting point of "Ages in Alignment," an originally researched reconstruction of ancient history. "Ages in Alignment" identifies the problems Velikovsky could not solve, and brings forward a great body of evidence not even mentioned by Velikovsky which supports his identification of Hatshepsut with the Queen of Sheba. Velikovsky was rejected by the academic establishment because of a number of contradictions in the chronology he outlined. Yet Sweeney shows that despite some gaps and incompletions, his books were brilliant works of scholarship with much to recommend them. For decades now various scholars have attempted to solve the enigma. Yet the answer was stunningly simple, and in front of us all the time. Empire of Thebes provides the solution and provides us, finally, with the possibility of a complete and satisfactory reconstruction of ancient history. 1. Hatshepsut, as the Queen of Sheba (Theba) really did visit Solomon in Jerusalem, but the journey occurred around 680 BC, not 930 BC, as Velikovsky believed. 2. Velikovsky believed that the heretic pharaoh Akhnaton was a contemporary of the Assyrian king Shalmaneser III, and dated the Amarna Letters to the time of the biblical kings Jehoshaphat and Ahab. He was very nearly right, here, but he was out by one generation. Akhnaton was a contemporary not of Jehoshaphat but of his predecessor Asa. Once again, critics used this error as an excuse to jettison all his theories. 3. Finally, the end of the 18th Dynasty was the focus of one of Velikovsky's most fascinating books but he left the story of the demise of Akhnaton's line unfinished. This period is examined in detail in Empire of Thebes, and the author shows which foreign power it was who came to the assistance of Tutankhamun's brother Smenkhare, after the latter had been expelled from Egypt. These other periods are covered in three other volumes, first of which is "The Genesis of Israel and Egypt", which traces the histories of Israel and Egypt back to their beginnings and makes some dramatic identifications. Imhotep, for example, who designed the first pyramid, is shown to be one and the same as Joseph of the coat of many colors. It is followed by "The Pyramid Age" and "Ramessides, Medes and Persians". However, although it's not first in line chronologically, Empire of Thebes is where this telling of the story begins."--Publisher's website.
