Travellers in Egypt (Tauris Parke Paperback)

Offering a study of travellers in Egypt, the contributions to this book encompass early travellers, those with a serious scientific or archaeological interest, those whose primary interest was artistic and literary, and those - including Flaubert - who wrote classic works of European literature based on their experiences. A whole section is devoted to E.W. Lane, not only for the importance of his writings, but also because of the criticism which he has received in the "orientalism" debate and which has not until now been seriously questioned. The book is aimed at readers interested in Western perceptions of the Orient; in the contribution made by early travellers to Egyptology; in the study of Egyptian society and its artistic, architectural and literary heritage; or in the history and culture of European travel in the Middle East.

Paul Starkey and Janet Starkey are specialists in Middle East history and literature at Durham University.
