Ancient History (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by George Rawlinson

Ancient History is a result of the early, exciting days of archaeological exploration. Even today, George Rawlinson's text remains the only brief introduction to the entire panorama of the ancient world. It gives equal weight to each of the civilizations of the Ancient Near East and Mediterranean rather than subordinating them to the classical civilizations of Greece and Rome.
