We look to Greece and Rome for the roots of the modern world

We look to Greece and Rome for the roots of the modern world. Driving north out of Samawa towards Baghdad, a short way beyond the Euphrates bridge, a tarmac track leaves the main road, heading eastwards into a scarred, dun-coloured wasteland. Soon you enter the real desert, swept by sandstorms. Then, after 60km or so, a haunting scene unfolds.

Culture and History of the Ancient Near East. Represented are my interests in Aegean and ancient Near Eastern cultural and political interconnections, the role of fibulae in revealing cultural and chronological matters, and the gender-determined usage of parasols and their recogni- tion in excavated contexts. There follow articles specifically concerned with what I call the Plunder Culture and the forgery of both objects and their alleged proveniences.

Excellent condition ! No writing , No tears. Perfect book.

Feels more like a collection of the history in the near east. Beautiful pictures.

Although dated (1990) from a scholastic perspective, the older photographs and charts of the area are valuable as a historian interested in the development of archeological discovery.

It's a nice book with lots of nice pictures!

I enjoyed this book, and plan to peruse it often. I purchased an inexpensive used copy, and it was in good condition. It is an Atlas, as titled, with plentiful artifact and architecture pictures, maps, etc. on almost every page. The timeline starts in Epipaleolithic and goes through the Iron Age. The text provides a lot of fairly detailed information about the Sumerian, Babylonian and Assyrian cultures and history without being overly tedious.

This is a readable and informative review of our ancient heritage. Even though the civilizations discussed are 3000 to 5000 years old - many of their ideas have come down to us - although in a transmuted sense and changed through many generations.

This is a good introduction to the peoples and culture that predate the greeks, romans and egyptians: where western civilization usually starts its history.

This atlas covers the historical development of the ancient Near East (with an emphasis on ancient Mesopotamia) from Paleolithic times to the conquest of the Persian empire by Alexander the Great. Michael Roaf does an excellent job of illustrating the book with color photos of artifacts, stone inscriptions, and maps that reinforce the discussion in the text. At appropriate points in the book, special features are included that focus on specific archaelogical sites around the Middle East as well as on significant cultural and scientific developments that occurred.
The main part of the book is 223 pages long, of which approximately half is devoted to photos, maps, and features. However, this is not simply a picture book; the atlas also includes a historical narrative that I found to be quite engaging and accessible for a general reader like myself. Additionally, besides being a good introduction to ancient Mesopotamia, this atlas provides a wealth of archaelogical data that may serve as a good reference for those who are undergoing more advanced reading. Examples of such data include the layout of existing ruins, geographical distributions of archaelogical finds, and a gazetteer that provides the coordinates of ancient sites in the Middle East.
On the negative side, I found that the index often provided faulty page references to subjects and a few typos can be found throughout the text. Nevetheless, these blemishes do not take away from the book's main goal of providing an illustrated introduction to ancient Mesopotamia for the general reader.
I understand that Checkmark Books (who published this atlas in 1990) has recently published a new book entitled "The Historical Atlas of Ancient Mesopotamia" by Norman Hunt. I have not seen this more recent book nor have I read any reviews about it, but potential buyers may wish to inquire about it before purchasing the 1990 atlas.
In any event, I think that "The Cultural Atlas of Mesopotamia and the Ancient Near East" would be a valuable addition to the library of anyone who is interested in ancient history. I know that this book will be in my collection for a long time to come.
I've read quite a few books on ancient Mesopotamia and I can say this is the best, one the information is good the full coloured illustrations are good the archaeological and historical details are very good as well
