About this item

Intended for high school or undergraduate students as well as non-historians, this book presents an overview of the history of Egypt. Concentrating on the modern era, the author, a professor of political science at Indiana State University, presents a chronological review of recent Egyptian history, demonstrating the influence and relevance of its ancient and medieval past. Emphasizing the roles of Egyptians instead of foreign influences, the author illustrates how the era of the ancient pharaohs and medieval Islamic rulers came to impact the evolution of Egypt as a modern nation state from the July 1952 revolution to the 2011 revolution and current political turmoil. The book includes an appendix of biographies of notable Egyptians of the modern era as well as a glossary of terms specifically related to Egyptian history and society.
