Description

Texte du rabat

Dawn and Sunset tells the story of the earliest urban communities on earth that mushroomed in Mesopotamia throughout the fourth and third millennia BCE. The study of Sumerian society teaches a lesson about our own times as the roots of modern civilization have grown from that setting. The writer researches various aspects of the ancient city-state: its religion, administration, bureaucracy, agriculture, arts and crafts, foreign trade, laws, social classes, and warfare-a real gift for those who love the history of mankind and the Ancient Near East.

"Dawn and Sunset" is a well researched, nicely written, and organized account of early Mesopotamian history."
Clarion Review

"Baizerman captures the mechanics of the spectacular rise of a glorious civilization."
BlueInk Review

"He provides a vivid impression of what life must have been like in this vanished world to which modern life finds many similarities."
Kirkus Reviews
