Ancient Mesopotamia : new perspectives by Jane McIntosh( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In ancient times, the civilizations that flourished where present day Iraq stands gave birth to some of humanity's most significant achievements, including the written word, the city, the legal system, public education, and more. This work reveals how archaeologists, geologists, geographers, and other scientists have pieced together an understanding of some of the most complex and accomplished civilizations in history. Ancient Mesopotamia: New Perspectives ranges from the region's cultural beginnings to its Persian "liberation," from simple farmers to mighty kings, from the marshy Gulf shores and Arabian desert sands to the foothills of the Taurus and Zagros mountains. It is the first resource to capture the entire sweep of Mesopotamia's four major ancient cultures (Sumerian, Akkadian, Assyrian, and Babylonian), spanning three millennia of civilized life in one concise and captivating volume. --Publisher
Handbook to life in prehistoric Europe by Jane McIntosh( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Handbook to Life in Prehistoric Europe focuses primarily on the period from 7000 BCE, when agricultural communities first began appearing in Southeastern Europe, to the first century CE, when Western Europe was progressively incorporated into the Roman imperium. Completely comprehensive, this engaging volume begins with an overview of the entire prehistory and early history of Europe from the earliest times to the creation of the Roman Empire and discusses Europe's interactions at various times with parts of Asia and North Africa. Due to a lack of historical evidence, information on many aspects of life at this time, belief systems, history, and literature is slight or non-existent. For this reason, Handbook to Life in Prehistoric Europe focuses on purely archaeological data and subjects such as settlement patterns, agriculture, technology, funerary practices, and monuments. Since areas of Europe developed at different times in a variety of ways, this accessible volume has a shifting geographical focus, including regions as they adopted farming as their principal economic base. Special attention is also given to the part Europe played in the major developments that have shaped human society. Coverage includes the development and spread of agriculture in Europe, the associated evolution of social class divisions and occupational specialization, the growth of settlement complexity, the emergence of complex belief systems, the development of pastoralism and the interplay between pastoral and agrarian societies, the spread of the Indo-European languages, the growth of militarism, the impact of new technologies, and other major issues
A peaceful realm : the rise and fall of the Indus civilization by Jane McIntosh( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ancient Indus Valley : new perspectives by Jane McIntosh( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Indus Valley gave rise to a sophisticated Bronze Age civilization - a uniquely peaceful society that developed everything from a complex government to sanitary plumbing to maritime trade to a rich mythology. Yet it was completely forgotten until its remarkable rediscovery in the 1920s. This volume offers a revealing study of a civilization that was the equal of Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt, one that covered a far larger region yet lasted a much shorter time and is far less well known." "Researchers have tentatively reconstructed a model of Indus life from the limited material that remains. Based on important findings from recent surveys and excavations in South Asia and neighboring regions, The Ancient Indus Valley explains what is now known about the Indus civilization's roots in the farming cultures of prehistoric South Asia, as well as the hallmarks of its extraordinary development. It is an eye-opening introduction to a vanished world - and a stirring testament to archaeology's power to recover the past."--Jacket
