Egypt is located in northern Africa, borders the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea, and includes the Asian Sinai Peninsula. The annual Nile River flood brings great richness to this semi-isolated region, with deserts to the east and west, and allowed for the development of this great civilization. Current problems for the country include a rapidly growing population, limited arable land, and dependence on the Nile, all conditions that drain Egypt's natural resources. Egypt provides a fascinating and current look at this powerful North African country. Engaging chapters cover an introduction to Egypt; its landscape, climate, and water; Egypt's population; the agriculture; urban Egypt; economy and trade; tourism; and social, economic, and environmental issues. Full-color photographs and illustrations accompany maps and graphs, providing a visually stimulating study of the country. Additional resources include a glossary, lists of further information, and a comprehensive index.
