Description: The first-ever compact, accessible, one-volume history of all 5,000 years of Egyptian history, highlighting the surprisingly strong connections between the ancient Egypt of the Pharaohs and the modern-day Arab nation. Never before has anyone attempted to tie together in a single volume the many eras of Egyptian history, usually the strictly separate domains of specialists: Prehistoric, Pharaonic, Greco-Roman, Coptic, Medieval Islamic, Ottoman, British Colonial, and Modern. In taking on this daringly ambitious project, Jason Thompson makes the case that few if any other countries have as many threads of continuity running through their entire historical experience. With its unprecedented scope and lively and readable style,A History of Egyptshould appeal not only to students, but also to tourists who want an overview of the land they are visiting, and anyone with a general interest in the Middle East driven by its significant role in current events.
