Editorial Reviews

Review

"A fascinating exposition of a new approach to explain the emergence of civilization in the Tigris-Euphrates valley. Coming from an anthropological perspective, Maisels provides a wide-ranging and penetrating analysis of the developmental process which brought agriculture, towns, and cities into being."
-"Religious Studies Review

From the Back Cover

The Emergence of Civilization argues that our present assumptions about state formation, based on nineteenth-century speculation, are wrong. Charles Maisels integrates archaeology, ecology and textual history into a new anthropological perspective.
