The Ancient Near East : c.3000-330 BC (2 volumes)
In this authoritative new study, Amelie Kuhrt examines its history from the earliest written documents to the conquest of Alexander the Great, c.3000-330 BC. This work dispels many of the misapprehensions which have surrounded the study of the region. It provides a lucid, up-to-date narrative which takes into account the latest archaeological and textual discoveries and deals with the complex problems of interpretation and methodology.
The Ancient Near East is an essential text for all students of history of this region and a valuable introduction for students and scholars working in related subjects.
