He outlines artistic trends in each period, linking them to economic, political and spiritual developments, and discusses the full range of artistic output: monumental architecture, sculpture, wall-reliefs and paintings, furniture, jewellery, papyri and pottery. He concludes with a fascinating account of Egypt's influence on modern art. Illustrations document the immense variety and superb quality of the art and architecture of one of the world's great civilizations."--Jacket." ;
