This description may be from another edition of this product. Examines Assyria's growth from warlike city-state to huge empire, through its conquest of all of Mesopotamia and Egypt, and aspects of its culture.
This interesting little book is part of Millbrook Press's The Cradle of Civilization series, and covers the Assyrians. It covers the history of the Assyrians, and delves into such subjects as Assyrian law and religion. Now, this book is written as an introduction for young students, and it is quite short, so if you are looking for in-depth information then this is not the book for you. However, what this book aims to be, it succeeds at admirably. Even as an adult armchair historian, I found things about the Assyrians that I never knew before. So, if you are looking for a short introduction to the Assyrians for a young student, then this is the book for you.
