[E–pub New] (Ancient Worlds) By Richard Miles


I viewed Miles series on which this is based when It Aired Several Years Ago And Reading The Book I aired several years ago and reading the book I the same impression as one might expect The story beats are the same bevel rimmed bowls Assyrian love of war Athenian democratic imposed empire etc If you ve seen the series this is simply a slightly extended version of that It s a whirlwind tour of Mediterranean and Near Eastern big players in ancient times Such a wide scope obviously means it losses over a lot and Miles pretty much just hits up a few key talking points But that is the purpose of the book it isn t for professionals or anyone looking for in depth information The book is designed for the eneral public as evidenced by the smooth accessible writing style and its whistle stop tour is intended simply to hook the reader into hopefully sparking a passion I would recommend this to new hobbyists or school students about to embark on further study7 out of 10 An unbelievably ood high level overview of history from the beginnings of civilisation to the end of the Roman empire with insights into political developments and the paradox of civilisation which are still applicable Today An And An enjoyable readable introduction to the ancient civilisations of Mesopotamia Egypt Greece and RomeI have read individual books in the past about all these civilisations and came to this wanting information about MesopotamiaThis book presents a persuasive argument about how civilisations have built on previous attempts and how this process works So as well as coming away with a Prisoner of Midnight greater knowledge of Mesopotamia I also now far better understand why each of these civilisations came into existence and why they failedBy necessity in a book of this nature much has to be omitted but you are free too and read about what interests you in reater detail What it does is try. Across the Middle East the Mediterranean and the Nile Delta awe inspiring monstrous ruins ,
