5.0 von 5 Sternen A masterful work by a master of the field., 23. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Egyptians (Ancient Peoples and Places) (Taschenbuch)
"The Egyptians" is a wonderful piece, spanning the whole of Egyptian history minus Ptolmiac times, which duly belong more to Greek and Roman history than to Egyptian. However, unlike Nicolas Grimal's "A History of Ancient Egypt," this work is written much better and Cyril's very formal, yet oddly casual style makes for quite the enjoyable read. A chapter is spent on Egyptian social classes, ranging from the Pharaoh to the peasantry to slaves, a delightful bite of information concerning Deir el-Medina hidden within. However, I must confess that one of the greatest pleasures came to me when I found among the wonderful plates a long sought after photo of the author, standing in the temple of Seti I at abydos; I like to have faces to go along with my favorite Egyptological authors. I also send my admonitions to Aidon Dodson for a wonderful job of updating; he made the book current without undermining Cyril's style, and nowhere can you detect his presence save for his well-said preface.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ideal introductory book for beginners to Ancient Egypt, 14. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Egyptians (Ancient Peoples and Places) (Taschenbuch)
Well illustrated, this classic book, written by a remarkable Egyptologist, is a comprehensible overview of Egyptian civilization. The author discusses the discoveries which led to the beginning of Egyptology; he presents Egypt's geography starting with Sudan and Nubia, ending with the Delta; he describes the history and formation of Egypt from the Predynastic to the Late Periods; he describes Egyptian social groups from the pharaoh to the peasants. Extensively updated by Egyptologist Aidan Dodson, it is an excellent introduction for all students.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Egyptians (Ancient Peoples and Places) (Taschenbuch)
I recommend Aldred's "The Egyptians" more than Grimal's book "A History of Ancient Egypt," which is vague and confusing. Aldred's book is definitely a much better and more reliable introduction to all aspects of this civilization, from history to religion, geography to social ranks.
