Ancient Near Eastern History and Culture William H. Stiebing Jr. Second Edition "Simply the best textbook currently available for the study of the Ancient Near East and Egypt. It is a well-written, intelligent, up-to-date survey that provides students with an excellent background while at the same time holding their interest." - Devin J. Steward, Emory University "Far and away the very best textbook available for a general history course on the Ancient Near East." - Glen Cooper, Brigham Young University Organized by the periods, kingdoms, and empires generally used in Near Eastern political history, this text interlaces social and cultural history with a political narrative. An emphasis on historical debates and areas of uncertainty helps students understand how evidence is used to create interpretations and that several different interpretations of history are possible. New Features Controversial issues are highlighted in sections titled "Debating the Evidence," making it easier for students and teachers to find and use the portions of the text devoted to scholarly arugments about the evidence for various aspects of ancient Near Eastern history. A new Chapter 4, "The Old Babylonian Period and Its Aftermath" gives more insight into this important period. More information is provided on culture and economy, especially in the sections on the Old Babylonian, Neo-Assyrian, and Neo-Babylonian periods. Visit us at www.ablongman.com/history "
