The secret of the Hittites; the discovery of an ancient empire by C. W Ceram( Book )

Overview: The Hittites, an ancient Indo-European people who appeared in Anatolia at the beginning of the second millennium BC, had become one of the dominant powers of the Middle East by 1340 BC. Early kings of the Hittite Old Kingdom had extended Hittite control over much of northern Syria eventually raiding down the Euphrates to Babylon. The struggle with Egypt under Ramses II for control of Syria led to one of the greatest battles of the ancient world at Kadesh in 1299 BC. The fall of the Hittite Empire in 1193 BC was sudden - perhaps because of large scale migration - and historical records were scarce. But then the discovery of Hittite cuneiform tablets at their ancient capital of Hattusa (now Bogazko, Turkey) in the 1940's yielded fascinating information about the people, their political organization, social structure, economy and religion. C.W. Ceram, author of Gods, Graves and Scholars, tells the dramatic story of the riddle of the scripts, the secret of their power and the mystery of their survival. In so doing he unlocks the secrets of this ancient empire

18 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in German and Undetermined and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wer erfahren will, wie es wirklich war, wird sich an die Frauen halten müssen. Denn die Männer haben sich in den Ruinen als "das schwächere Geschlecht" gezeigt. So sieht es die Autorin dieses Buches, die das Ende des Krieges in Berlin erlebt hat. Ihre Aufzeichnungen sind frei von jeder Selbstzensur. Nicht das Ungewöhnliche wird in diesem einzigartigen Dokument geschildert, sondern das, was Millionen von Frauen erlebt haben: zuerst das Überleben in den Trümmern, ohne Wasser, Gas und Strom, geprägt von Hunger, Angst und Ekel, und dann, nach der Schlacht um Berlin, die Rache der Sieger. Von jenem Selbstmitleid, an dem die geschlagenen Deutschen litten, fehlt hier jede Spur. Illusionslose Kaltblütigkeit, unbestechliche Reflexion, schonungslose Beobachtung und makabrer Humor zeichnen das Tagebuch aus. Lakonisch stellt die Autorin fest: "Die Geschichte ist sehr lästig." Auch darin zeigt sich ihre innere Überlegenheit, dass sie sogar unter den vergewaltigenden und plündernden russischen Soldaten noch sehr genau zu differenzieren weiss
