A conversation with Zahi Hawass

The secretary general of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass is the guardian of the country's incomparable wealth of monuments, a flamboyant showman whose many books and television documentaries have made him the most famous Egyptologist since Howard Carter. He spoke to Condé Nast Traveler's Susan Hack about the need to balance tourism and conservation, Americans' overreliance in package tours, and why he wants his country's treasures back.
