Full description for A History of Egypt
In A History of Egypt," " Jason Thompson has written the first one-volume work to encompass all 5,000 years of Egyptian history, highlighting the surprisingly strong connections between the ancient land of the Pharaohs and the modern-day Arab nation. No country's past can match Egypt's in antiquity, richness, and variety. However, it is rarely presented as a comprehensive panorama because scholars tend to divide it into distinct eras--prehistoric, pharaonic, Greco-Roman, Coptic, medieval Islamic, Ottoman, and modern--that are not often studied in relation to one another. In this daringly ambitious project, drawing on the most current scholarship as well as his own research, 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 Egypt""offers students, travelers, and general readers alike an engaging narrative of the extraordinarily long course of human history by the Nile.
