Synopsis

Egypt by Clarissa Akroyd

Nearly 5,000 years ago, on the eastern edge of the Sahara Desert, one of the world's earliest and greatest civilizations began to flourish. That civilization, Egypt, has held a firm grip on the human imagination ever since, with its powerful pharaohs, its awe-inspiring pyramids, and its mysterious religious beliefs. But Egypt is much more than a land of unsurpassed archaeological wonders. Today, it is the most populous Arab country; it was also the first Arab nation to make peace with Israel. As this ancient land struggles with the many problems of the 21st century, it remains a vital member of the global community. Discusses the geography, history, economy, government, religion, people, foreign relations, and major cities of Egypt.
