Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The ancient world of Mesopotamia (from Sumer to the subsequent division into Babylonia and Assyria) vividly comes alive in this portrayal of the time period from 3100 bce to the fall of Assyria (612 bce) and Babylon (539 bce). Students, teachers, and interested readers will discover fascinating details about the lives of these people taken from the ancients' own quotations and descriptions. These detailed anecdotes from the people themselves easily convey factual material. A wealth of information is provided on such varied topics as: education; literature; mathematics and science; city vs. country life; family life; and religion, as well as many other subjects.

Book News Annotation:

Examines original texts and artifacts to present a picture of life in ancient times. The focus is on historical Mesopotamia, the place where writing began ca. 3100 BC. Discussion begins with general information and an historical overview and proceeds to writing, education, and literature; the sciences; life in the city and in the country, including property and succession, women's roles, fashion, and food and drink; recreation; religion; government; and the economy. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
