From School Library Journal:

YA-- A beautiful, well-researched, informative study of the geography, history, archaeology, and anthropology of Mesopotamia and the Near East. Divided into "Villages," "Cities," and "Empires," the book is an excellent survey of this ancient region of the world. At intervals throughout the book, special topics and archaeological sites are featured, described, and illustrated. Some of the topics include the origin of writing, ivory carving, and Mesopotamian warfare. Jericho, Babylon, and Ur are among many archaeological sites that are given detailed explanations. Excellent full-page maps and a wealth of full- color illustrations add to the reference value.
