Phoenix: The Secret of the Hittites: The Discovery of an Ancient Empireby C.W. W. Ceram, C.W. Ceram
First published in English in 1956, this is a reprint of Ceram's quest to unravel the secrets of the Hittites. Appearing in the early 2nd millennium BC, the Hittites grew to become one of the dominant powers in the Near East, taking on the might of Egypt. Ceram looks in particular at the discovery of cuneiform tablets at their capital Hattusa, and what they reveal about the social, political, economic and religious life of the Hittites.
