Dictionary of Ancient Near Eastern Mythology by Gwendolyn Leick

Book Description

The Dictionary of Ancient Near Eastern Mythology covers sources from Mesopotamia, Syro-Palestine and Anatolia, from around 2800 to 300 BC. It contains entries on gods and goddesses, giving evidence of their worship in temples, describing their 'character', as documented by the texts, and defining their roles within the body of mythological narratives; synoptic entries on myths, giving the place of origin of main texts and a brief history of their transmission through the ages; and entries explaining the use of specialist terminology, for such things as categories of Sumerian texts or types of mythological figures.

Tombs of the Great Leaders by Gwendolyn Leick Tombs of the Great Leaders, Hardback (January 2014)

Combining history, architecture and travel writing, Tombs of the Great Leaders is a fascinating and revealing study of the political tomb, from Bronze Age tumuli to those built in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Babylonian World by Gwendolyn Leick Babylonian World, Paperback (December 2008)

Historicized by the New Testament as a centre of decadence and corruption, Babylon and its surrounding region was in fact a rich and complex civilization, responsible for the invention of the dictionary and laying the foundations of modern science. This book presents the history of the ancient state Babylonia and its 'holy city', Babylon.

Babylonians by Gwendolyn Leick Babylonians, Paperback (September 2002)

This new survey introduces the people and the reality behind the popular myth of Babylon. It explores the social, historical, geographical and cultural context in which this extraordinary civilization flourished for so many centuries.

Mesopotamia by Gwendolyn Leick Mesopotamia, Paperback (August 2002)

Situated in an area roughly corresponding to Iraq, Mesopotamia is one of the great, ancient civilizations. Yet, over 7,000 years ago in Mesopotamia, the very first cities were created. This book reveals how life was lived in ten Mesopotamian cities: from Eridu, the Mesopotamian Eden, to that potent symbol of decadence, Babylon.
