Read full description of the books Babylon: Mesopotamia And The Birth Of Civilization:The ancient world comes alive in this sweeping history of the city that laid the foundation for modern civilization. Babylon tells the story of Mesopotamia from the earliest settlements seven thousand years ago to the eclipse of Babylon in the sixth century BCE. Bringing to vibrant life the people of this land, the author chronicles the rise and fall of Mesopotamian civilization, from its political and social systems to its technical and cultural innovations. At the heart of this book is the story of Babylon, which rose to prominence under the Amorite king Hammurabi from about 1800 BCE. Although Babylon's fortunes waxed and waned, it has never lost its allure as the ancient world’s greatest city. Compelling and detailed, this book will fascinate history lovers and those interested in ancient civilizations.
