The region between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers-known as Mesopotamia (literally, "between the rivers")-was a cradle of civilization. In this fertile area, nomadic peoples first settled in communities, began the practice of animal husbandry, and-with the invention of tools-started agriculture. Among the many innovations from Mesopotamia are the wheel, metal smelting, the first evidence of counting, applied mathematics, and, ultimately, an alphabet and the birth of literature. In the series of great empires that followed, the first civil laws were established, from which subsequent civilizations drew their own.

Historical Atlas of Ancient Mesopotamia traces the historical, cultural, and political development of Mesopotamia, from about the time that writing was established and through its battles with Egypt, Greece, Rome, and finally the conquering power of Islam. It covers all aspects of ancient Mesopotamian history and culture, with an engaging text, specially created maps, diagrams, full-color photographs, and illustrations.
