Few works about the Middle East have exerted such influence as Edward William Lane's "An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians", which was first published in 1836. Many of the editions that have been in print during the past century have lacked parts of Lane's text and many of his original illustrations, they were based on what should have been ephemeral editions. This volume is a reprint of the definitive fifth edition of 1860, the result of a quarter century of Lane's corrections, reconsiderations and additions.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Edward William Lane (1801-76), a name known to almost everyone in all the many fields of Middle East studies, was the author of a number of highly influential works: An Account of the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians (1836), his translation of The Thousand and One Nights (1839-41), Selections from the Kur-an (1843), and the Arabic-English Lexicon (1863-93). In 2000, his long-forgotten manuscript Description of Egypt was published for the first time by the AUC Press. Jason Thompson is an associate professor of history at the American University in Cairo. He is the editor of Lane's Description of Egypt (AUC Press, 2000), and is currently preparing a biography of Lane.

Culturally enchanting plus interesting.. 10. November 2003
Von Lina Fairchild - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A landmark work of cultural anthropology, Lane's study of Egyptian society has never been out of print since it was first issued in 1836. The definitive fifth edition of 1860, the basis of this re-issue, was the result of a quarter-century of Lane's corrections, reconsid-erations and additions and includes 131 illustrations by Lane, most made with the aid of a camera lucida. Lane (1801-1876) first traveled to Egypt in 1825, inspired by the dis-coveries made by Belzoni and others in the Valley of the Kings, but it was contempo-rary life that captured his imagination. He immersed himself in the culture, learning its language and adopting its way of life. The results were extraordinary: Out of his ex-periences came not only this work, but translations of The Thousand and One Nights, Se-lections from the Qur'an, and the seminal Arabic-English Lexicon. Composed at a time of increased western interest in and contact with Egypt, but before the forces of moderni-zation transformed the country, Manners and Customs is renowned for its comprehen-sive scope, detail and perceptiveness on such topics as Islamic laws and government, festivals, death and funeral rites, marriage, music, dancing, magic and alchemy, public baths and bargaining. Lane's work retains its power to charm and amaze-much like Egypt itself.
