The Cambridge History of Egypt offers the first comprehensive English-language treatment of Egyptian history through thirteen centuries, from the Arab conquest to the present day. The two-volume survey considers the political, socio-economic and cultural history of the world's oldest state, summarizing the debates and providing insight into current controversies. Volume 1 addresses the period from the Arab invasion in 640 to the Ottoman conquest in 1517. Volume 2 traces Egypt's modern history from the Ottoman conquest to the end of the twentieth-century.
