The Ancient Near East embraces the borders of Iran and Afghanistan in the east to the Levant and Anatolia, and from the Black Sea in the north to Egypt in the south. The Ancient Near East dispels many of the misapprehensions which have surrounded the study of the region. In this well-illustrated volume, Amelie Kuhrt offers a comprehensive survey of the history of the Near East from the earliest written documents to Alexander the Great's Conquest, and provides up-to-date narrative which takes into account the latest archaeological and textual discoveries.
