Abstract:

"The Hittites created one of the great civilizations of the ancient world, although it remained almost unknown until excavations in the 19th century revealed the extent and importance of the culture. For nearly five centuries the Hittites ruled over vast areas of Mesopotamia, building large cities and founding successive kingdoms, engaging in incessant warfare and conquering smaller tribes and peoples, and making significant contributions to the region's culture and religion." "Historical Dictionary of the Hittites includes hundreds of entries on important people, places, and institutions, as well as significant aspects of society, government, economy, material culture, and warfare. An introductory essay, chronology, and bibliography, and thirty-two photographs complement the dictionary. Scholars, students, and general readers interested in ancient history will find this a valuable reference work about the Hittites and their rediscovery by modern archaeology."--Jacket.
