From the Back Cover:

One of the most alluring and compelling countries in the world, Egypt has fascinated, charmed and infuriated generations of travelers, from Herodotus to Mark Anthony to Napoleon. Cadogan's eloquent and fully updated guide to the country, by the eminent writer and chronicler of Egypt, Michael Haag, will give you the best possible grounding. A witty and erudite look at Cairo – ancient, medieval and modern – inspires a journey south along the Nile, to the extraordinary temples of Luxor and Karnak, and the breathtaking Valley of the Kings. Gently drift your way there on a felucca, or cruise further, across Lake Nasser, to visit the mighty colossi of Ramses II at Abu Simbel. Explore the oasis of the vast Western Desert; watch the sun rise over a biblical landscape from Mount Sinai; or visit historic Alexandria, site of Cleopatra and Anthony's palaces, and the ancient wonder, the Pharos lighthouse.
Inside you will find: practical travel advice; over 240 hand-picked places to stay; over 150 restaurants, bars & cafes; color maps of Egypt and Cairo city center; 47 maps & site plans; full coverage of the new, state-of-the-art library at Alexandria; completely revised chapter on Nubia, including full details of cruise itineraries on Lake Nasser.
