9780007108596: The Times Ancient Civilizations

Ancient Civilizations is a major new title from the publishers of The Times History of the World. From the first stirrings of organized society in the Middle East through to the collapse of the Aztec and Inca cultures in America, an authoritative text and lavish maps and pictures truly bring the ancient world to life.

The Times Ancient Civilizations is a richly-illustrated, beautifully-mapped and compellingly written treatment of the societies from which we inherit the basis of our own way of life.

The book’s coverage is truly global: Egyptians, Hittites, Assyrians, Romans, the Shang, the T’ang, the Chou, Olmecs, Toltecs, Aztecs, Incas, the cultures of Africa and the Americas. All are examined in this radical reassessment of the ancient world, written by a team of leading young historians.

With 80 maps and 250 pictures, the book is a visual feast which brings to life the grandeur of Rome, the splendour of ancient Persia and the mysteries of the Mayans. For anyone with an interest in the history, society, politics, warfare and culture of the ancient world or simply a delight in a beautifully conceived visual treatment of history, The Times Ancient Civilizations is essential reading.
