This is an account of the rise and fall of the civilization in the Nile Valley, covering the first human settlement (c 120,000 BC) to its conquest by Alexander the Great in 333 BC. It is the first reign-by-reign history of ancient Egypt to be published since Sir Alan Gardiner's Egypt of the Pharaohs (1961) and takes full account of the many archaeological, scientific and linguistic discoveries of the last three decades.

A brilliant account of this fascinating time in history that no-one interested in the subject should be without. ( )

Les incessantes révisions qu'opère l'égyptologie - une discipline somme toute récente - sont parfois longues à sortir du milieu des spécialistes. Ainsi, pour la plupart, avons-nous, de la civilisation du Nil, une vision quelque peu traditionnelle et conventionnelle, le plus souvent tributaire de découvertes et de travaux remontant aux années 50 et 60, alors que des avancées décisives ont eu lieu depuis. De ces acquis anciens et nouveaux un égyptologue propose ici une synthèse à la fois vivante et savante, portant sur l'ensemble de l'histoire de la terre des Pharaons (depuis la préhistoire jusqu'à la conquête d'Alexandre). Etayée sur la chronologie la plus sûre à ce jour et nourrie des informations livrées par un matériel archéologique de plus en plus abondant, elle fait une large part - et c'est là une de ses principales nouveautés - à l'économie, à la linguistique, à l'anthropologie, etc., à côté d'approches plus classiques comme le récit des événements et l'évocation des figures marquantes. Abondamment illustré et enrichi de nombreux textes égyptiens, cet ouvrage ambitionne de donner à l'honnête homme de notre temps, au voyageur, à l'étudiant une connaissance approfondie de la plus ancienne et assurément, la plus prestigieuse des civilisations du Bassin méditerranéen.

This is a well-written book and the English translation is excellent. But it needs to be said that this is a history of Egyptian pharaohs with a particular emphasis on power struggles and building projects. The pharaonic succession is recounted in detail, and the layout of several temples and monuments is presented in the text and the figures.

Other aspects of ancient Egyptian society, such as the organisation of the economy, administration, law, the military, the hieroglyphs or religious beliefs and worldviews are not even mentioned in this book. All topics involving the ordinary people of Egypt have been ignored.

As a result, this book takes a very narrow look at ancient Egypt when it focuses exlusively on dynastic politics and archeological monuments. There's nothing wrong with that, but in my opinion a more suitable title for this book would have been 'A history of Egyptian pharaohs and their buildings'.

A History of Ancient Egypt, a translation from the original French, is an excellent and readable introduction to Egyptian History. It provides an overview of the major political and social events in Egypt beginning with a brief survey of prehistory and ending with the conquest by Alexander the Great. The book covers the old, middle, and new kingdoms as well as the intermediate periods and ends with two chapters on the Nubian/Saite and Persian/Greek periods. It also includes a chapter on the "invasion" of the Hyksos as well as chapter describing the religious changes made by Akhenaten.

The book's great strength is its readability and continuity. While other histories of Egypt often get bogged down in archeological details, Grimal's work connects the dots in a smooth and engaging narrative style. It may be that he occasionally glosses the fine points to provide continuity, but having read more detailed texts (Oxford History of Ancient Egypt), I believe his book provides a clearer picture for the beginner.

This is not to say that the book lacks accuracy but scholars of Egyptian history will no doubt have their difficulties with some of Grimal's details. The book was first published in 1988 and, as such, is slightly out of date. Grimal also tends to use Greek names for most pharaohs as well many place names ie. Cheops instead of Khufu for the builder of the great pyramid. This can be a little confusing to the inexperienced reader if they have previously encountered other variants.

While the book covers the major political events in ancient Egypt, the inclusion of chapters explaining the Egyptian system of religious beliefs, funerary practices and a long description of the temple complexes at Karnak provide much needed background. The plates (all black and white) in the book are adequate, although often the maps lack detail. For the interested reader I would recommend "Le Description de L'Egypte", put out by Benedikt Taschen Verlag. This book, a beautiful collection of paintings, architectural drawings and maps, produced by a team commissioned by Napoleon, fills in many of the visual details missing in Grimal's work.

I would strongly recommend "A History of Ancient Egypt" to the casual reader, interested in Egyptian history, who does not want to be swamped with details. For the more scholarly it includes a brief glossary, a chronology of dynasties, an extensive bibliography, annotated suggestions for further reading and a fairly detailed index. Because of this it might also be useful as an introductory text in Egyptology, but given its age and narrative style, it will likely not be the first choice of experienced Egyptologists. ( )
