From Amazon.com:This book provides an introduction to one of the greatest civilization of all time - ancient Egypt. Beginning with a geographical overview that explains the development of Egyptian belief systems as well as its subsequent political development, it examines methodology, the history of the discipline of Egyptology, religion, social organization, urban and rural life, and death. It also includes a section on how people of all ranks lived. Lavishly illustrated, with many unusual photographs of rarely seen sites that are seldom illustrated, this volume is suitable for use in introductory-level courses on ancient Egypt. It offers a variety of student-friendly features, including a glossary, a bibliography, and a list of sources for those who wish to further their interest in ancient Egypt.

From Amazon.com: This is a unique and comprehensive introduction to the ancient Mediterranean and its three major civilizations, Egypt, Greece, and Rome. It reveals a fascinating picture of the deep links between the cultures across the Mediterranean and explores the ways in which these civilizations continue to be influential to this day Beginning with the emergence of the earliest Egyptian civilization around 3200 BC, [the author] follows the history of the Mediterranean over a span of four millennia to AD 600, beyond the fall of the Roman empire in the west to the emergence of the Byzantine empire in the east. In addition to the three great civilizations, the peoples of the Ancient Near East and other lesser-known cultures such as the Etruscans, Celts, Persians, and Phoenicians are explored. The author examines the art, architecture, philosophy, literature, and religious practices of each culture, set against its social, politica, and economic background. Ample space is also given to key individuals, from Homer to Horace, the Pharaoh Akhenaten to the emperor Augustus, Alexander the Great to Julius Caesar, Jesus to Justinian, and Aristotle to Augustine.

Du site de l'éditeur : Cent quatre-vingt-huit auteurs se sont réunis pour offrir au professeur Jean Leclant quatre volumes d’Hommages ; la diversité et le nombre des spécialités représentées par ces études sont à l’image des nombreux centres d’intérêt du savant. Le premier volume est consacré aux Études pharaoniques, de l’Ancien Empire au Nouvel Empire, en insistant plus particulièrement sur les Textes des Pyramides. Les deuxième et troisième volumes traitent de « l’Égypte hors de l’Égypte » : Nubie, Soudan et Éthiopie aborde les relations de l’Égypte avec ses voisins méridionaux ; les Études isiaques analysent le rayonnement de l’Égypte dans le monde classique et les civilisations de la Méditerranée. Quant aux Varia du quatrième volume, ils regroupent les nombreuses recherches qui échappent aux cadres précédemment définis ; ils sont suivis d’une bibliographie de Jean Leclant qui comporte presque mille titres.

Du site de l'éditeur : Quarante et un auteurs rendent ici hommage au Pr Jean-Claude Goyon, savant qui fut leur cadet, leur pair ou leur maître et dont ils ont particulièrement apprécié l’oeuvre scientifique. Celle-ci, par sa densité, son inspiration et sa rigueur, le place parmi les plus brillants savants de sa génération. Professeur émérite à l’université de Lyon II, où il a enseigné de 1977 à 2000, il a aussi été pendant de nombreuses années directeur scientifique de la Mission permanente du CNRS à Karnak. De la variété de ses intérêts et du nombre de ses amis résulte le panel très diversifié des contributions présentées ici et qui, parfois, viennent en écho lointain, se rattacher à ses propres travaux.
