Title: Egypt: Pharaonic Period. (Translation of 2007 edition by Jay Hyams). Dictionaries of Civilization
Author(s): Alessia Fassone, Enrico Ferraris
Publisher: Berkeley:  University of California Press
Publication Date: 2008
ISBN: 0520256484
ISBN-13: 978-0520256484
Current Price and More Info from Amazon

From the Bryn Mawr Classic Review:
Introductory books about Egypt certainly abound in any language and format. The book under review here belongs to a series titled "Dictionaries of Civilization". In the Press release, the book is defined as "Not merely a travel guide, this hand and easy-to-use guide provides an overall view of the civilization as a whole".

The book is divided into seven chapters: People, State and Society, Religion and Science, Daily Life, The World of the Dead, Sites and Monuments, The History of Egyptology.

Each chapter is divided into various entries, which are mostly in chronological and/or topographical order. Each entry presents a synthesis of the topic with bibliography, and a series of photos of statues, temples and monuments with descriptions. The iconographic material is quite canonical; a large percentage of the photos can be found in other books about ancient Egypt. The captions are detailed and informative, for which the authors should be congratulated.

Read the full review at the Bryn Mawr Classic Review web site.

Erratum:  Cauldron Amazon link goes to Reading Death in Ancient Rome, not to this book.

I fixed it. Unfortunately, Bryn Mawr is only giving ISBN-13s and Amazon only uses ISBN-10 to link to books so we have to convert -- and it is easy to make a mistake.

There's also the problem of me going cross-eyed after doing several of these. Too many windows open and too much stuff copied/pasted. I'd be surprised if I don't make this sort of mistake regularly.
