Revue de presse

"There is no longer any possible excuse for any undergraduate curriculum in ancient history not to offer a course of Ancient Near Eastern history under the pretext that there would be no adequate, accessible, and affordable textbook." ( Scholia Reviews) Praise for second edition: The additions to this volume have only added to its immense worth as both a textbook and a scholarly volume. Bryn Mawr Classical Review Praise for the first edition: "Marc Van De Mieroop′s introduction to the history of Iraq and the Asiatic Near East is suited to first–year undergraduates in ancient history, the archaeology of Western Asia and ancient Near Eastern studies generally, and to all others who need an up–to–date summary of what happened before the Greeks." Times Higher Education Supplement "I do not know of any other handbook of similar size that can compete with Van de Mieroop′s book in philological competence, in historiographic method, and in expository clearness." Mario Liverani, in Orientalia This text deserves a place on the shelves of ancient historians and archaeologists, and it will certainly have pride of place in reading lists for courses in Mesopotamian history. Norman Yoffee, University of Michigan As a textbook on Mesopotamian history, particularly the period from c.3000 BC to 612 BC, this book has no English–language equivalent This should be standard reading, therefore, for all students and scholars in the field. Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Comprehensive Look at the Entire Region 19 septembre 2008
Par George Wood - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Unlike many other books, this volume covers the history of the entire Near East, from Iran to Anatolia, and not just Mesopotamia or the Hittites. This gives it an unusual breadth, as parts of the entire region influence each other. And in ranging from the dawn of historic cultures around the year 3000 BC up to Alexander the Great, it includes all of the independent ancient civilizations that subsequently disappeared.

This book is very much like a textbook. It is more difficult than popular history, but certainly not an academic treatise. Importantly, there are many maps, and extensive lists of kings of the various states.

Egypt only comes into the story when involved with the peoples of the Near East. Interestingly, the periods of Egyptian history known as the Intermediate periods, when the central power fell apart and conditions seemed more chaotic, correspond very closely to what are described as Dark Ages in the Near East. This book does not pursue those parallels, but they are interesting.

Solid textbook 7 mars 2009
Par J. B. Marques - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This work is certainly a very solid, readable and up-to-date textbook, as mentioned in the editorial reviews above. The author is a leading specialist on the field and provides us with a history of the Near East that includes very recent discoveries and approaches - an obvious must when it comes to a textbook (I haven't seen the first edition for a comparison, though).

The maps are numerous and clear, there are many illustrations and boxes with precious information on particulars (such as, for instance, "the use of pottery in archaeological research", "the eponym dating system", and a critical assessment on the use of the Bible and Herodotus as sources), and also many useful and interesting primary sources. There is a king list at the end, presented in a clear layout, and a helpful guide on further reading, mostly in English (well, it's a textbook - though many works in French and German are mandatory for the subject).

I rated this book with four stars because, although being a superb textbook, it almost completely lacks discussion on previous theories and approaches on Near Eastern Studies. In my opinion, no book for university level, even a textbook for first-year students, should miss some treatment of previous interpretations and views, which in some ways are still influential, and to which current approaches are inevitably a response - e.g., "Oriental Studies" as a XIXth-century construction, see Saïd; or even a criticism on Wittfogel's "hydraulic hypothesis", still present in some popular works.

An Excellent Survey of Ancient Mesopotamian History 23 janvier 2007
Par John O. Freed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This volume is a good introduction to the history of the Ancient Near East. The author surveys the history of Sumeria, Babylonia, Assyria, Persia and the Hittite Empire in a highly readable style. Quotes from numerous important texts are included in each chapter and the author does a good job of not only telling us what happened, but also why it happened.

The book is well illustrated with black and white photos and numerous, highly useful, maps. At the end of the book is an excellent bibliography that will point the interested reader to other good articles and books on the topic.

This book was published in 2004 and incorporates the latest scholarship in the field. The author has done a great job of making ancient history come alive!

Very good history of a very long time frame 22 janvier 2010
Par Listo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a very solid presentation of almost 3,000 years of history in 360 pages. Don't expect anything authoritative-- the author says that early on. So much of the information historians have to work with is archaeological, which means our field of knowledge and understanding of this period is subject to change. Furthermore, the incredible length of time covered means somethings have to be left out in order to make a coherent and readable book. Very nice maps and graphics. Clearly written for the most part. The sheer number of names, of people or groups, can be hard to keep straight at times, but again that's more a reflection of the history the author deals with than the writing itself. You can tell the author's frustration with some of the archaeological work that's been done-- too much focus on palaces and forts and not enough on the vast majority of the people. It would be nice to have a history that showcased these varied societies and their economic structures and social organization. For all we know, our history of the period over-emphasizes the role of militarism and kings and under-emphasizes the role of peasants in maintaining the cultural patterns that changed only very gradually over the 3,000 year time frame.
I definitely recommend this book. It seems to be the latest scholarship, well written, and thoughtfully educates the reader on the issues facing the study of the period. It is important, afterall, to know how we know things. A great companion back good would be Wolfram Von Soden's The Ancient Orient: An Introduction to the Study of the Ancient Near East, which has a thematic rather than chronological lay-out.

Very good introduction to the subject 1 octobre 2010
Par C. Starr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This was the first book that I have read on the subject of the ancient near east. I later read Georges Roux's "Ancient Iraq" and Foster & Foster's "Civilizations of Ancient Iraq." These books all cover the same subject, but in different style, depth, and breadth.

Van De Mieroop's work is more scholarly and impersonal in its tone than the other two books, like what one would expect from a textbook. While this book is perhaps less descriptive than Roux's, it is a more coherant work (while Roux's was based on a series of articles he had written). Also, it is vastly more complete in the time period covered than Foster & Foster's. (One should note that the back cover of Foster and Foster's book contains praise and recommendation from Marc Van De Mieroop.) However, Van De Mieroop's book ends with the Invasion of Alexander the Great, where the Fosters continue on through Rome's presence in Iraq. "History of the Ancient Near East" includes in-text maps and illustrations, as opposed to "Ancient Iraq," where maps are inserted at the back of the book, and illustrations are sparse, mostly limited to picture plates at the center of the book. For somebody not used to the textbook style of history, this work's fairly deep and well rounded discussion of the material may seem dry and uninteresting at first.

I would never suggest to a person to read only one book on any subject. I would recommend they read all the above mentioned books, as well. I would recommend (to a fellow layman) that the books be read in the following order; Foster & Foster, Van De Mieroop, Roux. But no matter what books you decide to read on the subject of the Ancient Near East, or in what order you chose to read them, Van De Mieroop's "History of the Ancient Near East" should be one of them.
