Format: Paperback
This is a hefty price for a slim volume, but it delivers a lot: an introduction to the methods and theories of archaeology, a historical context for European archaeology in Iraq and how it has shaped our views of `mesopotamia', and a fascinating series of case studies which illustrate key moments in the transition from hunter-gatherer communities to the eventual establishment of the world's first empires.

This is an excellent treatment of the nature of the archaeological study of the ancient cultures of Mesopotamia. It is erudite and up-to-date, well-referenced, and thought-provoking; the book is also very well written and interesting. For readers with a serious interest in the archaeology of Mesopotamia, this book is a must.
