This review is from: Ancient Egypt: Anatomy of a Civilisation (Paperback)
This is the 2nd, revised and expanded version of what was already an Egyptological classic. Barry Kemp's deep and wide-ranging knowledge of ancient Egypt, its archaeololgy and its written records, is on full display. Perhaps just as important are the perspectives Kemp gives to life in ancient Egypt by inviting us to compare it to the modern world around us. Probably the best single book on ancient Egypt from the last 30 years.
