If you have any interest in the history of European involvement in Egypt (I know that's a minority interest, but hey, we all have odd hobbies, right?) this is a tremendous book. There is an incredible depth of research and interest as the author traces the early individual tourists to Egypt in the C18, right through the Imperial adventures and claims of the C19 and 20. Referring to personal correspondence and diaries as they relate to a wider history going on around them gives a clear and informative view of what Napoleon described as "The most important country in the world".

if you share my slightly unusual interest, I really can't recommend this book enough - and if you don't I recommend it as interesting, amazingly well-researched, engagingly written and occasionally peppered with a dry wit
