In 1887, a peasant woman stumbled across a 3000-year-old trove of cuneiform tablets in Amarna, Upper Egypt. The editors of this work have brought together a team of social scientists and ancient historians to explore the world of ancient Near Eastern statecraft portrayed in the letters. Subjects discussed include Egyptian imperial and foreign policy, international law and trade, geopolitics and decision-making, intelligence and diplomacy.
