Item description for Great Cairo: Mother of the World by Desmond Stewart...
Stewart surveys the vicissitudes of the city and makes sense of its highlights and lowlights, its times of glory and its times of misery, its heroic leaders and its cowardly tyrants. Sometimes a provincial outpost, sometimes an imperial capital, plunging from pinnacles of wealth, patronage, and achievement to sloughs of famine and cannibalism and rising again, Cairo--whose name means 'the Triumphant'--has changed and survived, and remains an astonishing and remarkable city.
