Having read much ancient history, I am amazed that this classic stands tall acentury after its writting. It remains vibrant in its insight & its telling. If there is a criticism, it is that its 19th century author was deeply Christian & incapable of a reality separate from faith based ideas. Despite this, Rawlinson proved himself kind, forgiving and man capable of deep respect for sincere men who led the world into commercial reality ("in contrast to the barbarism of war)
