"The Rise and Fall and Rise of Zahi Hawass"

"The Rise and Fall and Rise of Zahi Hawass" The long-reigning king of Egyptian antiquities has been forced into exile—but he’s plotting a return writes Joshua Hammer, painting a grim picture of contemporary inertia and chaos contrasting with the period of operation of this man of action (Smithsonian magazine, June 2013). Interesting background details - including the present whereabouts of protégé, Tarek El Awady in whose period of office the Museum was first looted and then occupied by the secret services then army. Peter Lacovara gets a lot of column-space too.
