The previous reviewer is a bit too kind. He is correct that there is alot of information contained. It is, however, really, really dated. I could find no date in the publication information but archaeology and related studies have moved mightily forward since this was written. Also, very difficult to slog through.

This is an excellent book on early Mesopotamian civilization. There are formating and typographical problems due to its age and such but if you tough it out you will learn something. Not an easy read by a long shot but it is free and it is very detailed on an area of history that not a lot of other books cover.
