Anthropology has emphasized a thousand times the decisive role of kinship in traditional societies. Social history, meanwhile, has noticed the power of the State, wherever it appears, to reorder society. Under such perspectives, these studies on kinship and State in ancient Egypt consider the cardinal importance that these principles have had in modeling the ancient Egyptian society over millennia. From the peasantry to the elite and the gods, from the political and economic practices to the ideologies, from Pre-Dynastic times to the New Kingdom and beyond, kinship and State have constituted the main logics of social organization in force in that distant world. The articles in this volume - in which the research of a significant group of Argentine and Spanish scholars is collected - provide multiple gateways to think about the power instituting such logic, and offer a wide variety of historical contexts corresponding to the ancient Egyptian society where the dominant character of kinship and the State can be noticed, or at least intuited.
