Egypt and Mesopotamia
state formation are in contrast with one another. Egypt crated a strong central
authority. While Mesopotamia state shifted with more frequency over a substructure
of regional city-state. Also, in Mesopotamia the development of urban centers
is the major connection of the evolution of the state society. Something that
Egypt presents no evidence of.

One key difference
is due to the different politics. For Egyptians, the ability to organized
masses of labors followed form its centralize government. Also, both societies present
evidence of different beliefs. The Mesopotamians lacked the Egyptian concern
for the preparation for the afterlife. This motivated the Egyptians to build
great tombs and pyramids that have made the rulers live on in human memory.
