Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

We sometimes think that western civilization started in the Mediterranean: in Greece and then in Rome. It didn't. We are amazed when we discover that our history started 3000 years before the birth of Christ, in Mesopotamia, between the Tigris and the Euphrates, an area now occupied by Iraq and neighboring countries.It covers these lesser-known forbears of Western history: -The Sumerians-The Babylonians-The Assyrians-The Egyptians-The Hittites-The Jews-The Phoenicians-The Cretans-The Persians-The Achaens-The Dorians-Ionia-Sparta-Athens-The Age of Pericles-Magna Graecia-Locris-Crotone-Sybaris(Italian and English facing text)

Book News Annotation:

Author Mafrici's Italian history of ancient Mesopotamia and early Greece is presented with a facing-page translation in English. The book appears to be aimed at young readers with short, simple chapters describing places and the accomplishments of early peoples such as the Sumerians, Persians, Hittites and Jews. The Greek section describes the creation of city-states. There is no index or bibliography and footnotes give extra information without citing sources. Internal evidence suggests that he used Strabo, Diodorus Siculus and the Bible as equally authentic sources. Distributed in the US by International Publishers Marketing.
