LORD OF THE HORIZON was the title given to Roidahn, leader of the Eyes of Horus, when Arnenernhet I became the first Pharaoh of the great XII Dynasty. This book describes how the new authority having overthrown a rule of fear. brought peace to Egypt; being able to do so because it recognized that the peace of a nation can only be obtained through the happiness of the individual. Through the eyes of Ra-ab Hotep. Nomarch of the Oryx. we see his wife and their three children, enjoy with them the glowing sunlight of the Nile Valley, and share the inward life of Pharaoh as though we too had been his close frlend. Conflict, whether between members of a family or between peoples, is a symptom of an inadequate ethic; and unhappiness is a disease which can. and must, be cured. What was true of Egyptians more than five thousand years ago is true in the twentieth century: so the methods by which Amenemhet was cured of the guilt which nearly destroyed him. by which children of diverse characters were taught how to develop their special qualities. by which the cruel became kindly and the narrow-hearted learned tolerance. may find their application in the world of to-day - for the essential problems of mankind do not change with millenia.
