Brotherhood of kings : how international relations shaped the ancient Near East by Amanda H Podany( Book )
9 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 349 libraries worldwide
"Amanda Podany here takes readers on a vivid tour through a thousand years of ancient Near Eastern history, from 2300 to 1300 BCE, paying particular attention to the lively interactions that took place between the great kings of the day. Allowing them to speak in their own words, Podany reveals how these Near Eastern leaders and their ambassadors devised a remarkably sophisticated system of diplomacy and of trade that extended from the Aegean Sea to Afghanistan, and from the Baltic to central Africa. The allied kings referred to one another as "brothers," kings with equal power and influence who were tied to one another through peace treaties and powerful obligations. They were also often bound together as in-laws, as a result of marrying one another's daughters. These rulers had almost never met one another in person, but they felt a strong connection--a real brotherhood--which gradually made wars between them less common. A remarkable account of a pivotal moment in world history--the establishment of international diplomacy thousands of years before the United Nations--Brotherhood of kings offers a vibrantly written history of the region often known as the cradle of civilization"--Provided by publisher

The Ancient Near East : a very short introduction by Amanda H Podany( Book )
10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
The ancient Near East is known as the ""cradle of civilization""--and for good reason. Mesopotamia, Syria, and Anatolia were home to an extraordinarily rich and successful culture. Indeed, it was a time and place of earth-shaking changes for humankind: the beginnings of writing and law, kingship and bureaucracy, diplomacy and state-sponsored warfare, mathematics and literature. This Very Short Introduction offers a fascinating account of this momentous time in human history. The three thousand years covered here--from around 3500 BCE, with the founding of the first Mesopotamian cities, to the

The ancient Near Eastern world by Amanda H Podany( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
What do the wheel, the law, and belief in a single god have in common? All of these ideas first came to people who lived in the ancient Near East. As if these revolutionary developments weren't enough to make a mark on world history, these ancient innovators also came up with the most fantastic invention of all-writing. [This volume] is filled with the scribes, potters, sculptors, architects, schoolchildren, lawmakers, kings, queens, farmers, and priests who designed and created that world. [It] dusts off ancient artifacts and texts and assembles them anew as pieces of the never-ending puzzle we call ancient history. Readers become part of the process of historical investigation as they explore these primary sources, learning not just what we know but how we know it. -
