Samenvatting

This book is an in-depth treatment of the antecedents and first florescence of early state and urban societies in the alluvial lowlands of Mesopotamia over nearly three millennia, from approximately 5000 to 2100 BC. Susan Pollock's approach is explicitly anthropological, and draws on contemporary theoretical perspectives to enrich our understanding of the ancient Mesopotamian past. It explores the ways people of different genders and classes contributed and responded to changes in political, economic, and ideological realms. The interpretations are based on studies of regional settlement patterns, faunal remains, artifact distributions and activity patterning, iconography, texts and burials.

Recensie(s)

' ... a very useful addition to the growing body of secondary archaeological literature on Mesopotamia ... It is also well written, carefully referenced, indexed, suitably illustrated and includes an annoted bibliography. As such, it should certainly appeal to its audience.' Antiquity Pollock's writing flows easily and does not obfuscate her materials. Choice Pollock is blessed with an enviable ability to explain these matters clearly and concisely, so her work makes a fine textbook for students as well as philologists and nonspecialists seeking an up-to-date account of early Mesopotamian history. I learned a great deal from her book and found it as excellent teaching tool as well. AJA ...refreshing.... Religious Studies Review
