9780195161595: The Ancient Near Eastern World (The World in Ancient Times)

What do the wheel, the law, and belief in a single god have in common? All of these ideas first came to people who lived in the ancient Near East. As if these revolutionary developments weren't enough to make a mark on world history, these ancient innovators also came up with the most fantastic invention of all-writing. The Ancient Near Eastern World is filled with the scribes, potters, sculptors, architects, school children, lawmakers, kings, queens, farmers, and priests who designed and created that world.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up–These two series entries offer in-depth coverage of their subjects, based on primary sources of artifacts and documents. Both volumes also cover, to a lesser degree, the archaeologists and paleontologists responsible for our current understanding of the material and touch on differing aspects of society within each period. Near Eastern World traces the history of the Fertile Crescent until Alexander the Great's conquest in 330 B.C.E. In a conversational manner, Robertshaw presents up-to-date information on human evolution as well as on early humanity in the New World. The text is matched with a great deal of supporting matter including time lines, maps, dramatis personae, high-quality photos, and artists' renderings. These fine volumes are worthy additions to most libraries. Erica Hunter's First Civilizations (Facts on File, 2003, rev. ed.) is an atlas of Mesopotamian civilizations and could be paired with Near Eastern World. Christopher Sloan's The Human Story (National Geographic, 2004) offers briefer but more visual material on human evolution.–Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, WI
