Table of Contents

This second edition of The History of Egypt not only provides readers with in-depth information on events of the last decade-such as the Arab Spring, the removal of Hosni Mubarak from office, and the protests against Mohamed Morsi's presidency-but also provides key background with chapters addressing previous periods of the country's history, starting from pre-Islamic times to pharaonic to Byzantine. The volume offers an objective history of Egypt that is uniquely appropriate for a high school audience.
