Overview

Few of the major peoples of the ancient Near East have been as little studied as the Elamites, a disparate collection of people living in what is today southwestern Iran, and yet few had such an impact on the course of history from c. 2600 BC to the first centuries AD. As the first synthesis of Elamite archaeology to appear in English in over fifteen years, this volume will serve as a major resource for all scholars, students and laypeople interested in the ancient Near East.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a very valuable study." Choice
Alan D. Hammond
An excellent and exhaustively documented book...[brings] history, archaeology and ethnogenesis together, and his concluding interaction across the shifting mosaic of southwest Asian polities through the millennia, epitomizes Henri Berr's "terrible craving for synthesis," and finally satisfies both himself and us.
