Synopsis: Greek civilisation is universally recognised as the basis of the modern West. But what was the basis of the Greek civilisation' From the dawn of history in the empires of Sumer and Babylon, where writing was developed and laws first codified, to the Medes and the Persians whom Alexander the Great conquered, this history charts the political and social changes that took place over the course of many centuries, culminating at last in the intellectual and material achievements of Greece, Rome and their later successors.

As well as the famous races like the Jews and Egyptians, Chahin explores less well known but vitally important groups such as the Hittites and Hurrians. The fascinating kingdoms of Crete and Mycenae hover in the shadowy background of the earliest Greek writings; the Sea Peoples are a source of great controversy among Homeric scholars and other students of that period; and the terrible might of the Assyrians is remembered to this day.

All those to whom 'Ancient history' means Greece and Rome should read this book and learn what happened in earlier generations to shape the world that the makers of Europe found when they rose to significance. It will appeal to the general reader interested in history, the enthusiast for Greek antiquities keen to discover their context and the Bible student wishing to understand more of the background to the Old Testament.

Product Description: The purpose of this book is to demonstrate the immense cultural debt of the Western World to the civilizations of the Near East that existed thousands of years before them. Many races are discussed along the way, from the early sophistication of the Sumerians, to the mighty Medes and Persians. Lesser known groups are also given coverage, such as the Hittites & Hurrians, and the Sea Peoples. An excellent introduction to Classical Studies, and a stimulating text for all readers.
