    DescriptionIn the 14th century BC the Hittites became the supreme political and military power in the Near East. How did they achieve their supremacy? How successful were they in maintaining it? What brought about their collapse and disappearance? This comprehensive history of the Hittite kingdom seeks to answer these questions. It takes account of important recent advances in Hittite scholarship, including some major archaeological discoveries made in the last few years. It also features numerous translations from the original texts, so that on many issues the ancient Hittites are given the opportunity to speak to the modern reader for themselves. The revised edition contains a substantial amount of new material, as well as numerous other revisions to the first edition.

    Review quote
    ...the standard treatment in English of the history of the Hittites...clear enough to be read with interest and profit by anyone interested in Ancient History but also written with the care and respect for varying opinions that any specialist might demand...I would urge all to read it...as a fine example of work from a specialist who can write in a clear and interesting way. Noel Weeks Ancient History: Resources for Teachers substantial and compehensive ... This is a serious work of scholarship and fundamental to study of the Hittites; its updating can only be welcomed. Christopher Burnand and Katherine Clarke, Greece and Rome Throughout the bookin its revised form the whole narrative of these tumultuous centuries...is very well and fluently laid out and carefully documented, with the pros and cons discussed on a range of disputed issues...[I] commend this handsome volume most emphatically. K.A. Kitchen, Egyptian Archaeology
