Of all ancient societies, Egypt perhaps has the widest popular appeal.The huge amounts of archaeological material, from the vast andimposing temples to the small objects of daily life, make us believethat we can approach the society and empathize with it.This study introduces the reader to the broad span of Egyptianhistory and cultural development from its origins to the arrival of Islam. It examines the structure of Egyptian society, its changes overtime, and the ways in which the economy and religious institutionswere used to bind society together. Challenging some of the acceptedtruths and highlighting the enormous gaps in our knowledge, theauthor also explains the place of Egypt in the Western Europeantradition that led to the development of academic Egyptology, andconsiders how the West has constructed its own version of theEgyptian past.
