From the book cover: Although European tradition has spread across the globe, its roots lie in a tiny little corner of the world : the countries surrounding the Mediterranean, in particular the cultures of Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome. What we know of these civilizations comes to us from contemporary written sources and excavations of ancient sites. This study covers the history of the ancient Near East, Greece, and Rome within the framework of a short narrative history, focusing on the social, political and cultural processes that have influenced Western civilization.

Reviewed by Francesca: This book, divided in two sections, was compiled during the course of the 1993 exhibition of the same name. It collectively portrays the fruits of knowledge of it. In the first part, the author introduces this fascinating civilization, by explaining its politics, religious beliefs, society, culture and history from the Bronze Age to the Napatan Meroitic Period. The second part contains more than 300 black and white pictures presented at the exhibition. This is a valuable work for those needing to learn more about Nubia.

Du site de l\'éditeur:À l\'entrée de la tombe d\'Ineni, l\'un des piliers est décoré d\'une représentation du domaine de ce notable. Le texte qui en décrit le jardin est complété d\'un tableau divisé en 20 quadrats, refermant chacun un nom d\'arbre suivi du nombre de spécimens observés. Témoignage unique sur la végétation de la région thébaine au Nouvel Empire, cette \'liste\' apparaît comme une énumération décousue de plantes devant permettre au défunt d\'emporter dans l\'au-delà l\'image d\'une exploitation agricole prospère, mais il se pourrait que, poursuivant un dessein plus ambitieux, le propriétaire de la tombe 81 l\'ait élaborée selon une conception précise de sa survie et qu\'elle forme un groupement cohérent tant sur le plan floristique que religieux. Pour tenter de répondre à cette question en se fondant sur les données de la botanique et de l\'égyptologie, l\'ouvrage analyse le document sous deux angles différents: les éléments de la liste sont d\'abord considérés tels qu\'Ineni les a répertoriés, puis examinés dans les combinaisons opérées par les Egyptiens au cours de leur histoire. L\'auteur propose une nouvelle interprétation de l\'inscription, dont la traduction s\'enrichit des identifications de ksbt et im3.
