Summary: Featuring 600 original articles covering the social, political, religious, cultural and artistic legacy of this 5,000-year civilization from the predynastic era to its eclipse in the seventh century CE. Covers art, architecture, religion, language, literature, trade, politics, everyday social life and the culture of the court. Looks at themes and issues that are particularly controversial--such as the new theories of the origins of complex society in the Nile Valley, new discoveries about Greco-Roman Egypt, and new developments in literature, religion, linguistics and other fields, including the debates about Egypt's African legacy.
