Publisher: Ugarit-Verlag

Binding: Hardcover/Hardback

Book Condition: New

Description:

This volume brings together research presented at the 52nd Rencontre Assyriologique Internationale, which took place in Münster between the 17th and 21st of July, 2006. The theme of the 52nd Rencontre was ?War and Peace in the Ancient Near East? Constant alternation between times of war and times of peace was one of the fundamental experiences of ancient Near Eastern peoples. Preparation for and performance of war along with seeking and making peace are discernible in different forms and contexts in the textual and material evidence of the ancient Near East. The theme of the 52nd Rencontre was relevant to scholars from many of the sub-disciplines of ancient Near Eastern research, including Sumerology, Akkadian studies, Hittitology, Ugaritology, and ancient Near Eastern archaeology, as well as to scholars interested in broader research questions pertaining to the history, culture, and languages of the ancient Near East. Among the subjects addressed by the contributions presented at the 52nd Rencontre were questions of military equipment, waging war and ending it (along with the attendant ritual/religious and legal questions), the social and economic background informing the use of military violence between states and groups, war as the continuation of politics by other means, and the perception of and reflections on the relationship between war and peace in literature and art. In addition to these contributions, this volume also includes research presented at the 52nd Rencontre that is not related to the 52nd Rencontre's theme. Bookseller Inventory # RAI52
