   schema:reviewBody ""The age of King Ramesses II of Egypt, the centuries of 1500 to 1200 B.C., is considered the first international age in world history. Powerful states on the eastern shores of the Mediterranean Sea - stretching from western Iran to Greece and from Turkey to Sudan - jointly shaped the history, society, and culture of this region through both peaceful and military means. These militarized states were frequently in conflict with each other, yet exchanged diplomatic messages, gifts, trade goods, and elements of culture and religion. For three centuries they formed a unique system of interdependence and coexistence, well documented in ancient textual and archaeological sources." "Providing a compelling narrative, synthesis of current research, and rich illustrations, The Eastern Mediterranean in the Age of Ramesses II offers a wide perspective on the period. Utilizing a diverse body of evidence, it ranges from eating habits to royal diplomacy to provide a comprehensive picture of this important period."--Jacket." ;
