Summary

  • "Over 500 extensively cross-referenced and comprehensively indexed entries provide clear explanations and descriptions of the ideas, institutions, sites, peoples and personalities that have shaped an area often described as the cradle of civilization. Each entry is a considered, self-contained essay, signed by an international scholar. Architecture, literature, economics, labour, religion and society are all covered, while more unusual subjects include adultery, crime, drunkenness, eunuchs and sexual behaviour."
  • "Each entry is followed by a short bibliography enabling readers to pursue topics in greater detail, with summary chronologies for ease of reference. The dictionary is illustrated throughout with photographs and specially commissioned maps, plans of major sites and drawings of reconstructed buildings, sculptures and reliefs."--Jacket.
