The Dynastic period is the sexy part of Egyptian history--from the first pyramid to Cleopatra's rendezvous with the asp--that so many books cover. Brewer (anthropology, U. of Illinois) looks instead to the period before that, focusing on the connection between environment and culture, the formation of agricultural communities, and the rise of the nation state. Though writing for general readers, he incorporates current research.
