“The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt” Edited by Ian Shaw (Oxford University Press, 2002)

Oxford History of Ancient Egyptstarstarstar

The Oxford University Press, as many of you scholars already know, is famed for producing inimitable compendiums and texts that anyone interested in history or literature simply must own.  And the have done it again with The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt.  While the book is pretty small for encompassing an entire civilization of dynasties, gods, beliefs, and thousands of years of ancient happenings, it nevertheless somehow manages to do the job.  With tons of black and white photos, as well as many colored plates, together with an interesting and detailed text.  The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt tells the reader much more than they can ever hope to know about the most mysterious of ancient civilizations.
