Publisher Comments:

With digitized, redesigned maps and thoroughly updated text, this long-awaited revision brings ancient Egyptian culture to life. From the temples of Abu Simbel in lower Nubia to the ruins of Tunis in the delta, here is a vivid portrait of the fascinating civilizations which have flourished along the Nile for 6,000 years. Written by two distinguished Egyptologists, the book is divided into three sections:

ò Part OneùThe Cultural Setting: Covers Egypt's geography, archaeology, history, art, and architecture
ò Part TwoùA Journey Down the Nile: Reveals spectacular monuments, such as the pyramids at Giza and other culturally significant sites
ò Part ThreeùAspects of Egyptian Society: Focuses on daily life, religion, the army, and the role of women in society.

Among the topics covered are:

ò The complex system of hieroglyphic writing
ò The pyramids and the types and methods of their construction
ò The work of pioneering British Egyptologist J. G. Wilkinson
ò Egypt in western art and the Egyptianizing tendencies of later cultures
ò Plus, extensive revisions to the Glossary, the Gazetteer, and the Bibliography.

Book News Annotation:

This cultural atlas has 36 maps, but also 500 colorful diagrams, photographs, and explanatory text organized into three major parts. Part one addresses, among other subjects, the geography, study, historical background, kings, art and architecture, and the tomb stelae of Ancient Egypt. Part two's journey down the Nile stops at some 90 sites where significant discoveries have been made or spectacular monuments stand. Part three focuses on the cultural life of ancient Egypt: everyday life, women and men, the army, burial customs, art, and writing. Opening the volume is a chronological grid comparing Egyptian civilization with Syria/Palestine, Mesopotamia/Iran, the Aegean, and Anatolia. Oversize: 9x11.5<">
