Synopsis

Egypt by Ron Ragsdale

From the Bedouin camps in the Sinai desert to the crowded streets of Cairo, the 21st century has brought new challenges for the people of Egypt. The rapid population growth and a lack of fertile land have seen a vast increase in the number of Egyptians living in cities, where pollution and overcrowding are major problems. Meanwhile, the rural landscape of Egypt is changing as ambitious irrigation schemes increase the amount of land available for farming. Meet the people of Egypt and learn about the diversity of their lives, from a city planner in Cairo to a doctor in Luxor. It includes maps and graphic panels showing statistics and fact boxes about size, flag, population, religion, currency and language.
