My copy came out back in 1999 or so, so it’s most likely outdated. 1999 Edition written by Stuart A. Kallen
There’s still plenty of info in it’s pages though, as long as you keep in mind a lot has changed sicne it’s printing. It covers the whole span of Egypt’s history pretty much, with facts and factoids from Ancient Egypt, right up to printing day. It’s half travel guidebook with customs and government facts and half history lesson. I had a hard time reading through it, but I always do with nonfiction so I don’t hold it against the book at all. If your curious about how people viewed Egypt around 1999 and what was going on back then, go ahead and check it out.
