9780521284271: Ancient Egypt: A Social History

The rich and extensive floodplain of the River Nile can claim to be the cradle of one of the earliest and most spectacular civilizations of antiquity. Ancient Egypt: A Social History, first published in 1983, presents an innovative perspective on the ancient societies which flourished in the Nile Valley from the Predynastic period to the conquest by Alexander the Great. From the introduction of a subsistence economy through the establishment of the first agricultural communities to the development of urban centres and the political state, this volume traces the process of political, social and economic change. The emphasis on the social and economic aspects of Egyptian society and the integration of archaeological and historical data mark a new departure in Egyptian studies.

Book Description:

The processes of political, social and economic change are traced in an original survey of the ancient societies that flourished in the Nile Valley from the predynastic period to the conquest by Alexander the Great.

Review:

'[The book] provides an excellent treatment of Egyptian history for the period before it was absorbed into the Graeco-Roman world.' Ancient Society

'No one interested in ancient Egypt can afford to ignore this book. The general reader will find much of interest presented in an extremely readable fashion. The specialist will revel in the accumulation of biographical citations and the thoughtful juxtaposition of conflicting theories.' Archaeology

'The fifty-nine figures, some of them highly unusual, consisting of the line drawings, listings and maps, add to the exceptional nature of this book.' Choice
