If you are looking for a compelling history of the most ancient human civilization, then Roux's book is a classic that cannot be missed. He delves deeply into the history of ancient Mesopotamia without getting bogged down in too much detail. Roux also excels and explaining exactly *how* we know what we know about the ancient civilizations, thanks to archaeology. I highly suggest, however, reading this with a good atlas of ancient history by your side for when Roux delves into the frequent political changes of the region. While there are some maps included, they don't tell much more than where cities are located. Reading this with such an atlas is vital for understanding what was happening when and where. This book is also very easy to read, as Roux is blessed with a smooth narrative that is engrossing, setting this apart from many other dry histories.
