About the Authors
  • The Cambridge History of Egypt offers the first comprehensive English-language treatment of Egyptian history through thirteen centuries, from the Arab conquest to the present day. The two-volume survey, written by international experts, considers the political, socio-economic, and cultural history of the world's oldest state, summarising the debates and providing insight into current controversies. Implicit in the project is the need to treat Egypt's history as a continuum and at the heart of any regional comparisons. As Egypt reclaims a leading role in the Islamic, Arab and Afro-Asian worlds, the project stands as testimony to its complex and vibrant past. Its balanced and integrated coverage will make an ideal reference tool for students, scholars, and general readers.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'There is much that is fresh and stimulating here, a mixture of fact and interpretation that conveys a considerable amount of information in a generally digestible form, and which, in total, manages to identify the critical moments and enduring themes in Egypt's long history since the Arab invasions of the seventeenth century AD. The book is also admirably up to date, in two senses. First, the coverage continues to around 1995 and the third presidential term of Hosni Murbank, setting the scene for recent research, which often, hardly by chance, is the work of the various contributors themselves. The Cambridge History of Egypt is largely the product of a new generation of Middle East historians and reflects a vitality across the field.' The Times Literary Supplement
