?Magisterial . . . [A] rich portrait of ancient Egypt?s complex evolution over the course of three millenniums.??Los Angeles Times

 
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY
The Washington Post · Publishers Weekly
 
In this landmark volume, one of the world?s most renowned Egyptologists tells the epic story of this great civilization, from its birth as the first nation-state to its absorption into the Roman Empire. Drawing upon forty years of archaeological research, award-winning scholar Toby Wilkinson takes us inside a tribal society with a pre-monetary economy and decadent, divine kings who ruled with all-too-recognizable human emotions. Here are the legendary leaders: Akhenaten, the ?heretic king,? who with his wife Nefertiti brought about a revolution with a bold new religion; Tutankhamun, whose dazzling tomb would remain hidden for three millennia; and eleven pharaohs called Ramesses, the last of whom presided over the militarism, lawlessness, and corruption that caused a political and societal decline. Filled with new information and unique interpretations, The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt is a riveting and revelatory work of wild drama, bold spectacle, unforgettable characters, and sweeping history.
 
?With a literary flair and a sense for a story well told, Mr. Wilkinson offers a highly readable, factually up-to-date account.??The Wall Street Journal
 
?[Wilkinson] writes with considerable verve. . . . [He] is nimble at conveying the sumptuous pageantry and cultural sophistication of pharaonic Egypt.??The New York Times

Buchbeschreibung Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, London, 2010. Hardcover. Buchzustand: Near Fine. Zustand des Schutzumschlags: Near Fine. Jacket by Sarah Greeno (illustrator). 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. First edition, first impression with full number line. Some very slight edge wear to top and bottom of jacket and spine, corners very slightly rubbed, not price clipped (£30.00), no inscriptions, internally clean tight and square, overall a vg++ copy. 646pp, illustrated. The story of Ancient Egypt and the extraordinary civilisation that flourished along the banks of the River Nile can seem like a gorgeous pageant studded with exceptional events. Among them are the building of the pyramids, the conquest of Nubia, Akhenaten's religious revolution, the power and beauty of Nefertiti, the life and death of Tutankhamun, the ruthlessness of Rameses, Alexander the Great's invasion, and Cleopatra's fatal entanglement with Rome which led to the fall of Ptolemaic Egypt. But while three thousand years of pharaonic civilisation have all the ingredients of an epic novel, glittering courts, dynastic intrigues, murky assassinations and epic battles, individual stories of heroism and skulduggery, of triumph and tragedy and powerful women and tyrannical kings, the real historical story is even more surprising and far more interesting. The Ancient Egyptians were the first group of people to share a common culture, outlook and identity within a defined geographical territory governed by a single political authority, concepts of nationhood that continue to dominate the planet. As the world's first nation state, the history of Ancient Egypt is above all the story of the attempt to unite a disparate realm and defend it against hostile forces from within and without. In this magnificent history Toby Wilkinson combines grand narrative sweep with detailed knowledge of hieroglyphs and the iconography of power, to reveal Ancient Egypt in all its complexity. For the first time we see the relentless propaganda, the cutthroat politics, the brutality and repression that lay behind the appearance of unchanging monarchy as well as the extraordinary architectural and cultural achievements for which it is justly famous. A large heavy book, extra postage may be required. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 005682
