Full description for Egypt's Making
Michael Rice's bold and original work evokes the fascination and wonder of the most ancient period of Egypt's history, from c.5000 to 2000 BC. It draws on Jungian theory to explore the psychological forces that contributed to the nation's special character, and which also account for Egypt's continuing allure up to the present day. The author covers a huge range of topics, including formative influences in the political and social organisation and art of Egypt, the origins of kingship, the age of pyramids, the nature of Egypt's contact with the lands around the Arabian Gulf, and the earliest identifiable developments of the historic Egyptian personality. Wholly revised and updated in the light of the many discoveries made since its first publication, Egypt's Making is a scholarly yet readable and imaginative approach to this compelling ancient civilization.
