Pharaohs & Mortals reveals how little human nature has changed. Here are brought to life human types very much like those of our own world: the lonely soldier at a far-flung outpost- the grubby schoolboy- the career woman- the propagandist- the demagogue- the bootlicking minor executive- the conservative--all variety of personalities that make up a highly complex civilization. Nor have human hopes & disillusionments changed much over the centuries. In Pharaohs & Mortals the reader will find postwar questionings, the enthusiasms of new deals & new frontiers, labor conflicts, & the threat of opposing economic & political systems to the establishment.
Thru all the skillfully selected episodes in Pharaohs & Mortals shines the continuum of history.
