Ancient Egypt: 2615-332 B.C.by Edward Bleiberg
Part of a series of reference works for high school libraries designed to provide descriptions of major people and events as well as daily life within the culture, this volume provides clearly written entries about ancient Egypt, illustrated with numerous b&w photos. All three of the work's contributors are Egyptologists; Edward Bleiberg is a curator at the Brooklyn Museum; Stephen Thompson teaches at the Dora Klein Jewish Academy in Boca Raton, and Steve Vinson teaches at the State U. of New York at New Paltz. The volume's succinct but pithy entries acknowledge shifts in scholarly understanding of people and events, providing a background to current interpretations. A brief bibliography follows each entry.
