An Illustrated History

Fred James Hill

This concise history of Egypt over five millennia, from the first dynasties of the pharaohs, through the periods of Roman, Islamic, Ottoman and British rule, and into the 21st century, provides an insight into the culture of modern Egypt through profiles of key figures such as the singer Umm Kulthum (d.1975) and the writer Naguib Mahfouz (1911–2006).
