About The Book
The story of Egypt is the story of history itself — the endless rise & fall, the life & death & life again of the eternal effort to endure, enjoy & understand the mystery of the universe. Emerging from the mists of time, Egypt met the challenge of the mystery in a glorious evolution of religious, intellectual & political institutions & for two millennia flourished with all the vigor the heart can invest in a social & cultural order. Then Egypt began to crumble into the desert & the waters of the Nile, & her achievements in civilization became her lingering epitaph. John A. Wilson has written a rich interpretive biography of one of the greatest cultural periods. He answers — as best a modern Egyptologist can — the questions asked concerning the dissolution of Egypt’s glory. Here is scholarship at its finest, concerned with the humanity that has preceded us, & finding in past grandeur & failure meaning for today.
