"This book presents a comprehensive review of the archaeology of Syria from the end of the Palaeolithic period to 300 BC. Syria has become a prime focus of field archaeology in the middle East since the 1970s, and Peter Akkermans and Glenn Schwartz discuss the results of this intensive fieldwork, integrating them with earlier research. Alongside the major material culture types of each period, they examine important contributions of Syrian archaeology to issues like the onset of agriculture, the emergence of private property and social inequality, the rise and collapse of urban life, and the archaeology of early empires. Competing interpretations are set out and considered alongside the authors' own perspectives and conclusions."--BOOK JACKET.
