'Simply brilliant, a credit to publisher and author alike. Beautifully produced, it proves that scholarship of a high order on a subject of considerable complexity, with massive accompanying bibliography and footnotes, is yet compatible with solid readability. These are two magisterial volumes, unmatched by anything available today in coverage, scholarship and judgement.' - Literary Review
'A very comprehensive synthesis.' - Antiquity
'These beautifully written and lavishly produced volumes contain a comprehensive and up-to-date survey of the history of the ancient Near East from the earliest documentary evidence to the conquest of Alexander the Great.' - Orientalia
'A magnificent handbook to a vast sweep of history, from 3000BC to Alexander the Great.' - Mary Beard, BBC History Magazine
