Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Four new countries and nine updated editions have been added to Bobbie Kalman's popular Lands, Peoples, and Cultures series. These powerful and intimate portraits of countries use up-to-date information and full-color photography. Presented in a mini series format, three books per country ensures thorough coverage of all the important aspects. It also allows more students to work on different projects at the same time. Covering more than basic history and geography, students will be fascinated to learn about:

-- the land... geography, agriculture, transportation, history, industry, and glorious wonders

-- the people... unique customs, customs we share, problems faced by minority groups and women

-- the culture... modern festivals, ancient processions, food, games, and more

Beautiful photographs and illustrations help reveal the way of life of the Egyptian people, from the desert-dwelling Bedouins to the Nubians who live along the Nile. Fascinating text compares the daily routines, food, clothing, and celebrations of modern life with ancient times.

Topics include:

-- Arabs, Bedouin, Nubians, and Coptic Christians

-- life in the village, the city, and the desert

-- family life, school, and traditions

-- the religion of Islam

-- sports and pastimes

-- food, clothing and the Arabic language

-- famous Egyptians

Synopsis:

Fascinating photos and text feature daily life, food, clothing and celebrations of both modern and ancient Egyptian life, from the desert-dwelling Bedouins to Nubians who have lived along the Nile for thousands of years.
