Summary
Ancient Egypt is arguably the most successful and longest lasting human civilisation yet. In this pacy guide, renowned Egyptologist Barry Kemp seeks to explain why it was able to thrive with such stability for so long. The answers may be surprising: Kemp shows that human rights and career progression played an important role, as well as the traditional forces of slave labour and religion. Taking a thematic approach, he examines ancient Egypt's geography, rulers, society, morality, family life, art and architecture, military, science, philosophy and religion. He then goes on to ask what happened to ancient Egypt and point to its lasting influence today
