Pressestimmen

'At last there is available a comprehensive, scholarly synthesis of the formative period of Egyptian history ... magisterial ... the extraordinary scope and outstanding quality of this synthesis make it a work of scholarship of the highest quality and utility and a major contribution to Egyptology. Wilkinson has established a reputation for himself as a scholar of formidable talent and productivity.' - Bruce G. Trigger, Chronique d'Egypte

Synopsis

Early Dynastic Egypt spans the five centuries preceding the construction of the Great Pyramid at Giza. This was the formative period of ancient Egyptian civilization, and it witnessed the creation of a distinctive culture that was to endure for three thousand years. This book examines the background to that great achievement, the mechanisms by which it was accomplished, and the character of life in the Nile valley during the first five hundred years of pharaonic rule. Arranged in three parts, the results of over thirty years of international scholarship, including recent dramatic discoveries, are included and presented in a single volume. The book is the most comprehensive treatment of Early Dynastic administration and religion. A wealth of complex information is explained in a clear style accessible to the general reader, whilst students will welcome the book's thematic approach to early Egyptian civilization.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book replaces W.B. Emery's Archaic Egypt as the standard English-language introduction to the early dynatic period. It is a fine synthesis of the last century of work in the field and in specialist journals, including many recent discoveries (e.g., cemetary U at Umm-el-Qaab) and the most important discussions (e.g., Seidlmayer,Renee Friedman). Especially strong in dealing with the "new" archeology, the most important original contribution of this work is its analysis of royal administration in the 1st through 3rd dynasties. If the book does have a weakness, it is in its catalog-like treatment of religion: but the major references are given for the reader to follow out even here.

A Professional Reference - "General Readers" Beware 21. Dezember 2004
Von Michael Gunther - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
"Early Dynastic Egypt" is an excellent - indeed, probably indispensible - professional reference. However, it isn't necessarily suitable for most "general readers," even those who already know something about ancient Egypt.

The amount of factual detail in this book is overwhelming, as befits a scholarly work, but there is not enough interpretation or explanation to make the archaeology come alive for a non-professional reader. The book's lack of illustration (other than confusing line drawings of early dynastic seals) is another minus, both for scholars and general readers alike.

I was also surprised at Wilkinson's non-quantitative treatment of the archaeological record. Important numbers like population estimates and enclosure dimensions seem largely absent from this book.

a must-have for all serious Egyptology students 17. August 2001
Von Francesca Jourdan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In this stunning book, the author chronicles the cultural, religious, economic and political developments which led to the construction of the pyramids. Divided in three parts, the author provides convincing evidence in relation to the five topics discussed herein, i.e. administration, contacts with foreign lands, establishment of divine kingship, royal tombs, and early Egyptian religion. A remarkable publication with great photography. Highly recommended for the interested student or scholar.

An amazing book for amateur & professional Egyptologists 6. Mai 2005
Von E. Filson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Seriously solid information on the early Egyptian dynasties is almost impossible to find. The era gets short shrift in the popular literature owing to the paucity of remains from it. This is at least partly, we learn, because archaeologists seemed more attracted to the dynasties that would yield booty than those that would surface trinkets. Additionally, the lack of a cogent narrative for the first three dynasties gives little for non-accademic writers to work with.

Wilkinson makes up for this by organizing the book more by topic than by chronology. It makes for an interesting read, even if the picture that emerges is just a fragmentary as the evidence. A perusal of the table of contents will give you an idea of how this is done.

Wilkinson spares no detail. Looking for attested instances of Semerkhet's nswt-bty? They're all dutifully cataloged in well-written prose in the chapter covering kings by chronology and likely referenced in the chapter on population centers if they were found within one.

Aside from the actual archaeological evidence, there's a fair bit of informed speculation. The actual names of the kings isn't altogether clear and there are a few ephemerally attested kings that may be alternate names of known kings, usurpers, or something else entirely. It's these musings that make this such a great read and highlight where encyclopedias of kings' names or overviews of Egyptian history fall well short. Early Dynastic Egypt is invaluable.

Excellent text for scholars or interested amateurs 20. Juli 2004
Von Justine J - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The reviews prior to mine sum up the strong points of the text quite well, it is an excellent resource for up-to-date (as of its publication) information and current models about the rise of the Egyptian state. The only criticisms I have are minor and some what nitpicky, but I'll include them anyway:
1) the paper the books is printed on is slightly glossy which I find extremely irritating as it catched light and returns a glare when you're reading (I told you this would be nitpicky).
2) not many illustrations - publishing costs being what they are, etc. I can understand the lack of illustrations and the choices made as to what to include, but clear understanding of some points, especially when discussing layout of sites, etc. is greatly facilitated by the inclusion of good maps, plans, etc.
