Kemp's popular text presents a compelling reassessment of what gave ancient Egypt its distinctive and enduring characteristics. Ranging across Ancient Egyptian material culture, social and economic experiences, and the mindset of its people, the book also includes two new chapters exploring the last ten centuries of Ancient Egyptian civilization and who, in ethnic terms, the ancients were. Fully illustrated, the book draws on both ancient written materials and decades of excavation evidence, transforming our understanding of this remarkable civilization. Broad ranging yet impressively detailed, Kemp's work is an indispensable text for all students of Ancient Egypt.Hide synopsis

I read the First Edition of Ancient Egypt: Anatomy of a Civilization many years ago, and when I learned it had been updated, knew I had to read the revised version. As stated on the cover, it identifies "what gave ancient Egypt its distinctive and enduring characteristics, ranging across material culture, the mindset of its people, and social and economic factors." It brings the ancient society to life in a way no other book I've read does. It avoids the trite "Hollywood" outlook on ancient Egypt, and focuses on the people as they went about their daily lives. It is well written by an Egyptologist who knows how to make the subject not only interesting, but thought provoking.
