Ancient Near Eastern History and Culture

William H. Stiebing Jr.

Second Edition

 

"Simply the best textbook currently available for the study of the Ancient Near East and Egypt.  It is a well-written, intelligent, up-to-date survey that provides students with an excellent background while at the same time holding their interest."

- Devin J. Steward, Emory University

 

"Far and away the very best textbook available for a general history course on the Ancient Near East."

- Glen Cooper, Brigham Young University

 

Organized by the periods, kingdoms, and empires generally used in Near Eastern political history, this text interlaces social and cultural history with a political narrative.  An emphasis on historical debates and areas of uncertainty helps students understand how evidence is used to create interpretations and that several different interpretations of history are possible.
