The Cambridge History of Egypt offers the first comprehensive English-language treatment of Egyptian history through thirteen centuries, from the Arab conquest to the present day. The two-volume survey, written by international experts, considers the political, socio-economic and cultural history of the world's oldest state, summarising the debates and providing insight into current controversies. Implicit in the project is the need to treat Egypt's history as a continuum and at the heart of any regional comparisons. As Egypt reclaims a leading role in the Islamic, Arab and Afro-Asian worlds, the project stands as testimony to its complex and vibrant past. Its balanced and integrated coverage will make an ideal reference tool for students, scholars and general readers. Volume 1/Islamic Egypt, 640 1517, edited by Carl PetryVolume 2/Modern Egypt, 1517 1990, edited by M. W. DalyReviews"It is a pleasure to crack the pages of The Cambridge History of Egypt, a new, long-ovedue enterprise in a venerable series."--The Historian"... an exceedingly valuable, comprehensive, and readable source for serious students and faculty interested in greater depth, more recent scholarship, and bibliographic reference."--Choice"... a compilation that will surely rank as a standard work in the literature."--Journal of Palestine Studies"... Petrie, Daly, and their many authors do an excellent job of offering a traditional history (dates and kings, culture and economics)..."--Middle East Quarterly"The two-volume servey considers the political, socio-economic, and cultural history of the world's oldest state, summarizing the debates and providing insight into current controversies."--Shofar"All in all, the two volumes of The Cambridge History of Egypt are well edited, thoroughly documented, handsomely presented, and dignified by the research and writing of always competent and in several instances brilliant scholars. Both volumes are aimed at a readership, whether general of specialized, that will hopefully take advantage of this ambitious and even quite monumental undertaking to deepen its appreciation of Egypt's historical grandeur."--International Journal of African Historical Studies
