Sep 22, MJ Huot rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to MJ by: Apologies for the somewhat messy and scattered review it’s been a long week and I finished this 2 volume set a while ago, just never got to marking it as finished: While this book can be considered to be a bit “outdated”, it is hands down the best academic source for delving into the broad and underrated topic of the Ancient Near East.
It’s basically impossible to find a text that strives to cover everything under the large term of Ancient Near East.
The Ancient Near East : c.3000-330 BC (2 volumes)
There’s one, slightly more recent text The copious amounts of references, dates, names, etc. You definitely don’t find this kind of detail in the sparse modern works on the Ancient Near East Another aspect of Kuhrt’s work that is rarely found anywhere else and is essential to the understanding of the topics is the author’s willingness to delve into the problems of evidence, history, past archaeological digs, etc. I would insist this be required reading for anyone interested in Classical Studies.
No, it isn’t your typical Greco-Roman topics that Classics seems to solely focus on nowadays Nov 02, Kim Berkey rated it really liked it. Kuhrt is thorough, well-researched, and very accessible.
