273 thought on “The Babylonians

  1. I have great interest in history, so I thought I d be a good autodidact and check this out This was very much a textbook type of education densely packed with information and written in dispassionate academese Those who like their history to be exciting and entertaining might be bored exhausted by this one However, it was very informative for such a slender volume and at no point almost disappointingly so given to speculation, just facts, facts, facts I learned a decent amount about the subject, [...]


  2. Loved it Well written, engaging, didn t want to put it down Useful for class since we were just talking about Xenophon and the Battle of Cunaxa by the Euphrates.


  3. An interesting book This was a hard read The information was rapid fire with little interpretation heavily reliant on cuneiform tablets Not for the faint at heart.


  4. This was a really fun book to read It was very broad and general in its scope, but at the same time scholarly It also has a great bibliography.
