Item description for The Cambridge History of Egypt (2 Volume Set) (Vol 1 & 2) by M. W. Daly & Carl F. Petry...
The Cambridge History of Egypt offers an English-language treatment of Egyptian history through 13 centuries, from the Arab conquest to the present day. The two-volume survey considers the political, socio-economic and cultural history of the world's oldest state, summarising the debates and providing insight into current controversies. As today's Egypt reclaims a leading role in the Islamic, Arab and Afro-Asian worlds, the project stands as testimony to its complex and vibrant past. Volume 2 traces Egypt's modern history from the Ottoman conquest to the present day. A wide range of scholars from the humanities and social sciences have been brought together to explore the history of the period. Their conclusions reflect the work of traditional scholarship and also indicate present trends and future directions in historical writing in Egypt. The volume's balanced and integrated coverage should make a useful reference tool for students, scholars and general readers.
