From the Back Cover:

 “The Companion is a well-edited, comprehensive approach to the history, culture, literature, and high art of ancient Egypt ... In bringing together some of the best authors on their respective topics, Lloyd has assembled an in-depth complement to ancient Egyptian studies.”  (Near Eastern Archaeology, 2012)

"The aim of this companion is to provide a competent and authoritative overview on ancient Egypt. This has been accomplished well. All articles are concise, with comprehensive summaries which reflect the most recent scholarship. The interested reader, student, or scholar will find a very helpful and satisfactory platform to start from with this companion. It will guide him or her to further reading and in their own research." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 14 October 2011)

“This Companion is a current, readable and, on occasion, illustrated account of all major events, aspects of history and culture in ancient Egypt....it has a broad appeal with an extensive range of subjects covered in differing depths allowing the reader to dip in for pleasure or study.” (Reference Reviews, 2011)

"For anyone interested in ancient Egypt . . . Recommended. All levels/libraries." (Choice, 1 March 2011)

"Part of a highly regarded series, this 2-volume work offers the student, interested general reader, and specialist a thorough and up-to-date resource on ancient Egypt. Written by curators and academics at museums and institutions in Egypt, Europe, and North America, the chapters present definitions and context in framing the current state of the question for each topic, with the time frame deliberately extended into the Greco-Roman period." (Book News, Inc., November 2010)

Offering unprecedented breadth and depth of coverage, and delivered in a highly readable style, this Companion provides the very latest, well-illustrated accounts of the major and current aspects of Egyptology. A Companion to Ancient Egypt is published in two volumes to give full scope to the discussion of Ancient Egypt, whose development lasted well over three and a half millennia. Areas of discussion have been divided into physical context, history, economic and social mechanisms, language, literature, and the visual arts while historically oriented chapters reveal an emphasis on thematic issues. Lloyd provides a chronological table with additional historical comment at the start of each volume, allowing readers to locate each historical chapter in its overall context.

The two-volume Companion brings together nearly 50 newly commissioned essays by an international team of leading scholars to provide new and illustrative coverage of one of the most successful civilizations the world has ever seen.
