Drawing on Jungian psychology to show why Egypt has been so important in the history of Western civilisation, Michael Rice explains the majesty and enduring appeal of Egyptian civilization.

Jung claimed that there exist certain psychological drives dormant in our shared unconscious: these are the archetypes. From the omnipotent god to the idea of the nation state, the formulation of most of these archetypes is owed to ancient Egypt.

Michael Rice sets out to recover the sense of wonder that the Egyptians themselves felt as they contemplated the world in which they lived, and the way they expressed that wonder in the religion, art and literature. He traces the story of Egyptian civilization from its emergence in the third millennium BC to its transformation following the Macedonian conquest in 30 BC.

About the Author:

Michael Rice is well-known for his work in the planning and designing of museums throughout the Arabian peninsula. He is the author of Egypt's Making (1990), which explores the origins of the Egyptian state from 5000-2000 BC.

Review:

"This exuberant book will appeal to those willing to think about history from a Jungian standpoint." - Religious Studies Review
