A history of the ancient world
Reflecting four decades of teaching and research, and drawing on the most recent scholarship, the third edition of this book continues to provide the broad coverage, chronological framework, and absorbing literary style that distinguished the previous editions. In the present revision, the chapters on early man have been extensively rewritten to incorporate the most recent anthropological and archaeological discoveries. A number of sections have been significantly recast, among them those on Hammurapi's Babylon, Shang's China, the socio-economic development of early Greece, Rome in the mid-Republic, and the Roman frontier policy in the Empire.
