Reviews

"Scholarly, passionate, and exquisitely written . . . it is remarkable how this book gives us almost nothing of the ancient Egypt we think we know . . . [Romer writes] with all the care and exactitude of a pharanoic engineer with a plumb line . . . a stunning, clear-sighted history of ancient Egypt." --"The Sunday Times "(UK)

"After a long wait, we have an up-to-date, stimulating account of the birth of what may turn out to be the world's oldest civilization." --"Nature "(UK)

"His physical descriptions are superb . . . A book to be read and thought about."
