Lionel Casson offers a comprehensive introduction to the people of ancient Egypt. He describes the structure of Egyptian society the levels from peasant to pharaoh, the nature of the family, and the role of women.
I was reading one of Casson's books while waiting for [my daughter]... She was late, which would ordinarily have thrown me into a fever of apprehension, but on this occasion I was so wrapped up in the book, I didn't notice. In fact, when she did come back, quite late, I was annoyed because she had interrupted me before I had finished the book. I told Casson this, and he was infinitely pleased.
Provides a suitable introduction to Egyptian society for readers newly interested in ancient Egypt or for use in a survey course.
