Abstract:

"This new book is a concise and readable survey of the unique civilization that developed within the specific geography of ancient Egypt and its influential river, the Nile. Designed especially for the non-specialist, each chapter deals with a general theme and is highly illustrated for easy browsing, making this an ideal book for anyone interested in learning more about this rich and well-documented culture." "Distilled from the latest discoveries, fieldwork and research by a well-known world authority, the text is spiced with ideas based on the author's long experience in his field. Neither controversial nor bland, the book makes a stimulating starting point for anyone studying or visiting Egypt. The main text is supported by a wealth of reference information, including guides to further reading, an annotated list of important museum collections and a king-list with a selection of illustrated royal cartouches."--Book jacket.
