This text represents a thorough examination of primary source material regarding the Heliolithic school of cultural diffusion. This book intends to delineate the actual claims made by W.J. Perry, Grafton Elliot Smith, and W.H.R. Rivers about Egypt and the spread of civilization. The author places diffusionism within an appropriate historical context and offers analysis of the theory as it developed over time.
