9780198140955: The Kingdom of the Hittites

In the fourteenth century BC the Hittites became the supreme political and military power in the Near East. How did they achieve their supremacy? How successful were they in maintaining it? What brought about their collapse and disappearance? This comprehensive history of the Hittite kingdom examines recent archaeological discoveries and original texts, giving the ancient Hittites the opportunity to speak to the modern reader for themselves.

About the Author:

Trevor Bryce, Fellow, Australian Academy of the Humanities.

Review:


"One of those rare books that successfully fills a gap in scholarship....This will be the standard resource on Anatolia in the second millennium BCE for decades to come. An outstanding work that belongs in all university libraries."--Choice


"Bryce's volume represents an authoritative, comprehensive, up-to-date treatment of the political and military history of the Hittite kingdom....it is...imperative reading for any serious inquiry on the Hittites by scholars of the ancient Near East."--Religious Studies Review


"Beyond its full coverage of the course of events in second-millennium Anatolia, the real strength of The Kingdom of the Hittites is that Bryce looks at the world of the Hittites with the eye of a true historian....he puts forward interpretations of events and rationales for the decisions of Hittite monarchs....This book will be of great value to the Hittite specialist and to his/her students, as well as to the scholar of other regions and periods of the ancient world who wishes to become acquainted with the story of the first masters of Anatolia."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
