For courses in Ancient History (Ancient Near East - Egypt/Mesopotamia), Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome.

The Ancient World is a comprehensive, multi-perspective, and integrated chronicle of the history of the ancient world, from Sumer to the fall of Rome, that explores the distinctive forms society took—particularly the unusual (by the standards of college students today) relationships between society and the state that characterized the social order of antiquity.

By closely integrating social and cultural histories with the political, institutional, and military climates in which they unfolded, this text provides fascinating insights into family, gender relations, class structures, public vs. private realms, slavery, popular culture, religion, art, architecture, leisure styles, philosophy, science, and education, and explores their complex relationships to ideology and political events.


A textbook for undergrads. Ancient Middle East, Greece, and Rome are covered chronologically with emphasis on the institutional/contextual aspects of the different societies. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
