The Princeton Dictionary of Ancient Egypt
Ian Shaw & Paul Nicholson

Book Description

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"For more than a decade, this attractive single-volume reference has been the most informative and user-friendly dictionary of ancient Egypt available. Written by Shaw and Nicholson, two archaeologists with more than 20 years of excavation experience, The Princeton Dictionary of Ancient Egypt is essential and indispensible. The new edition features a completely revised text, hundreds of illustrations in full color and more than 600 up-to-date alphabetical entries that range from agriculture to Zawiyetel-Mayitin. In short, this excellent work provides concise information on all aspects of Egypt during the pharaonic and Greco-Roman periods."--Tucson Citizen

"The Princeton Dictionary Of Ancient Egypt has been thoroughly revised and updated by editors Ian Shaw and Paul Nicholson, and includes important discoveries from the past decade."--Nicholas A. Basbanes, Florida Sun-Sentinel

"This work should be a standard source in university libraries and public libraries with collections on ancient history."--Shannon Graff Hysell, American Reference Books Annual

ENDORSEMENT:

"Easily the best single-volume general reference work on ancient Egypt in recent years--nothing on the market can compare to this book. The authors' revision makes this useful book even better."--T. G. Wilfong, University of Michigan
