Description
In The Civilization of Ancient Egypt, writer Paul Johnson explores the rise, growth, and decline of a magnificent culture that survived for 3,000 years while maintaining a purity of style that rivals all others. With an in-depth analysis of the state, religions, culture, and geographical setting, which combined to form this singularly enduring world, the book takes readers from the beginning of Egyptian culture to the rediscovery of the pharaohs. It encompasses the totalitarian theocracy, the empire of the Nile, the structure of dynastic Egypt, the dynastic way of death, hieroglyphs, the anatomy of preperspective art, and finally, the fall of the pharaohs.

Through a compelling amalgam of images and text, this highly accessible volume unearths the causes behind the collapse of this great civilization while celebrating the extraordinary legacy it has left behind.
