The nature of ancient Egypt, outlined through a history of ideas and behaviors: myths, symbols and institutions that conditioned the life of a people for thousands of years.

[Ancient Egypt. Analysis of a civilization] Innovative ideas abound in the essays of Barry J. Kemp, the authoritative expert on the Egyptian civilization of the University of Cambridge. The book’s value is based not only on a modern approach to the rich mosaic of the history of ancient Egypt, but also on the cogent arguments provided by the author to support his theses. The result is a history of ideas and behaviors, probing the nature of the ancient Egyptian state with its wealth of instruments – myths, symbols, institutions – that influenced the minds and directed the lives of the populace.
Kemp offers a logical path of analysis of the complex issues connected with the evolution of the Egyptian civilization, in keeping with a new archaeological outlook based on important findings in recent excavations, and reinterpretation of existing scientific materials.
