History of Ancient Egypt: An Introduction by Erik Hornung

Ancient Egyptian civilization, with its strictly hierarchic organization, can appear static through its three-thousand-year history. In his concise & authoritative introduction to that distant culture, a renowned Egyptologist reveals the turbulent events beneath the rigid facade. Erik Hornung begins his account by taking a brief look at the prehistoric era in Egypt. He then focuses on political events during the period beginning with the reign of Menes & closing with the conquest by Alexander the Great. Building on insights drawn from the civilizations surviving texts, he also describes significant cultural developments, such as changes in burial customs & the building of the Great Pyramids & Sun Temples. Originally published in German, this important & highly useful survey is at last available in English.
