History and Culture: Pyramids, sphinxes, tombs and temples recall Egypt's ancient past. One of the first and most fascinating civilizations of human history was born here on the banks of the mighty Nile thousands of years ago. Later on caliphs and sultans turned Egypt into an oriental fairy-tale land out of the 1001 Nights -- an atmosphere it has kept to this day. Travel Destinations: Nelles Guide Egypt leads you from Cairo, the pulsating metropolis, to the timeless beauty of the Nile oasis. It covers everything: the magnificient monuments from the days of the Pharaohs, splendid mosques and churches as well as the beautiful beaches of Alexandria and the Red Sea, the bizarre mountains of the Sinai and the pristine oases of the Sahara. Features: The phenomenon of re-Islamization is one of the topics that may deepen the reader's interest in Egypt. Other features report on such subjects as the Aswan dam, the Nobel prize winner Nagib Mahfuz, the art and gods of the pharaohs and the science of egyptology. Nelles Guide Egypt does not stop at describing places, it also presents the complexities of Egyptian life. Travel Information: Whether traveling by boat, road or air, the Guidelines at the end of the book will assist you before and during your journey. The Guideposts at the end of each chapter in the travel section are especially designed to suit every des-tination and offer a great deal of important information about accomodation, hotels, restaurants and more.

While such historic monuments as the pyramids at Giza, the Karnak Temple, and the Valley of the Kings draw visitors to Egypt each year, the country is today a large and varied collection of some 79 million people. An important political and cultural force in the Middle East and home to one of Africa's most advanced economies, Egypt is rapidly becoming a major player in the 21st-century world. This comprehensive text examines all facets of life in Egypt, including its land, history, politics, and culture. It is written in a manner that makes the subject accessible and engaging for readers with little prior knowledge about the country, but also provides a critical analysis of the latest research for students and scholars familiar with Egypt and its people. Special attention is given to the historical period following the rise of Islam to enable a greater understanding of Egypt's contemporary government, religious practices, popular culture, and current events.

This richly colored memoir chronicles the exploits of a flamboyant Jewish family, from its bold arrival in cosmopolitan Alexandria to its defeated exodus three generations later. In elegant and witty prose, André Aciman introduces us to the marvelous eccentrics who shaped his life--Uncle Vili, the strutting daredevil, soldier, salesman, and spy; the two grandmothers, the Princess and the Saint, who gossip in six languages; Aunt Flora, the German refugee who warns that Jews lose everything "at least twice in their lives." And through it all, we come to know a boy who, even as he longs for a wider world, does not want to be led, forever, out of Egypt.

The Book of the Dead is a unique collection of funerary texts from a wide variety of sources, dating from the fifteenth to the fourth century BC. Consisting of spells, prayers and incantations, each section contains the words of power to overcome obstacles in the afterlife. The papyruses were often left in sarcophagi for the dead to use as passports on their journey from burial, and were full of advice about the ferrymen, gods and kings they would meet on the way. Offering valuable insights into ancient Egypt, The Book of the Dead has also inspired fascination with the occult and the afterlife in recent years.

This book is a critical analysis of the contemporary and historical roots of a new type of political leadership in Egypt, dating from the July 23, 1952 revolution led by an idealistic Egyptian nationalist and pan-Arabist named Gamal Abdul Nasser. The Nasser regime is interpreted as essentially a praetorian political system, in which the military has the potential to dominate the political structure, with the army as a core group and as a ruling class. In such a system, political leadership is recruited mainly from the army. This volume chronicles the evolution of praetorian regimes in general, and then interprets Nasser's ascendancy to power from this perspective. The 1956 takeover ofthe Suez Canal and Nasser's transformation of his 1967 military debacle into a national "victory" is analyzed as the climax of his career. His inability to cement the uncomfortable federation with Syria and the imbroglio over his intervention in Yemen are seen as the beginning of his decline, culminating in the disastrous Six-Day War and his failure to prevent Hussein's annihilation of the Palestinians in Jordan. Nasser's contribution to the new style of politics prevalent in the Arab and sub-Saharan African worlds is evaluated. Also included is an analysis of the machinations of coup-preparing and coup-making, and comments on the neo-Islamic, corporate orientations of the post-Nasser praetorians. Perlmutter's work is unique in its combination of extensive scholarship, kowledge of Egyptian politics and familiarity with and ability to use current social science concepts. Egypt: The Praetorian State is the first comprehensive analytic and interpretive study of the Nasserite phenomenon. CONTENTS: Military Praetorianism: A New Type of Politics / The Historical Context / Egypt's Military: A Progressive New Middle Class? / Political Power and Social Cohesion in Nasser's Egypt / Experiments in Praetorianism: Nasser's Regimes and Political Parties / The Persistence of Nasserism: The Military vs. the ASU
