This is one of the best books on the ancient Mesopotamian civilization of Sumer that I have ever read. So much so, that I plan on purchasing it on Amazon for my personal collection. If you are interested in learning about the ancient world, this book is a must have. It’s an excellent overview with great writing and beautiful illustrations throughout. What makes this publication especially precious is that it was done in the early 1990s, shortly before that whole area of the Middle East became one horrific war zone and a no man’s land. This book covers archeological sites that are most likely now completely destroyed or reburied under tons of sifting sand. So what is considered the first advanced civilization (predating even the Egyptians) may never reveal her remaining secrets and will be lost forever.
