This concise, chronologically organized guide to nearly 6000 years of Egyptian history opens with a chapter devoted to the country's five geographical regions, which have inevitably influenced politics and culture. Goldschmidt (Modern Egypt) follows with 11 chapters tracing significant political and cultural developments between 10,000 B.C.E. and 2007. Photographs, maps, and inset sidebars covering important subjects and cultural figures appear throughout the book. An accessible and enjoyable read; recommended for history collections as well as academic and public libraries.
