This book is an in-depth treatment of the antecedents and first florescence of early state and urban societies in the alluvial lowlands of Mesopotamia over nearly three millennia, from approximately 5000 to 2100 BC. Susan Pollock's approach is explicitly anthropological, and draws on contemporary theoretical perspectives to enrich our understanding of the ancient Mesopotamian past. It explores the ways people of different genders and classes contributed and responded to changes in political, economic, and ideological realms. The interpretations are based on studies of regional settlement patterns, faunal remains, artifact distributions and activity patterning, iconography, texts and burials.

Review quote

' ... a very useful addition to the growing body of secondary archaeological literature on Mesopotamia ... It is also well written, carefully referenced, indexed, suitably illustrated and includes an annoted bibliography. As such, it should certainly appeal to its audience.' Antiquity
