This beautifully designed pocket reference--more a compact encyclopedia than a dictionary--presents ancient Egypt in stunningly-produced photographs and concise textual descriptions of Egyptian art, culture, and government. Not merely a travel guide, this handy and easy-to-use guide provides an overall view of the civilization as a whole, including a fascinating section on the history of Egyptology, the invasions and excavations, and a section on where the artifacts can be seen today. This is a must-have addition to the library of anyone interested in ancient Egypt, and a necessary companion for the traveler.
