CAMBRIDGE HISTORY OF EGYPT, THE - 2 VOLUMES SET

'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.
