Product description


This book can be thoroughly recommended for anyone wishing to gain a broad overview of the history of ancient Syria. (Adam John Fraser, Palestine Exploration Quaterly)

Bryce has outdone himself; a marvellous achievement. Reads as smoothly as a novel, but packed as full of facts as an encyclopedia. Bryce weaves together the threads of disparate cultures and centuries of civilization, creating the very fabric of history itself. (Eric H. Cline, The George Washington University, and author of Biblical Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction)

sketches the history of Syria in a lively and fluid style. (Bibliotheca Orientalis)

The author is an engaging writer and one quickly gets the impression that he has enjoyed researching and writing this book ... Professor Trevor Bryce's publication provides a lucid account that assists our understanding of Syria's historical importance and continuing strategic location. (Andrew Jamieson, Ancient Near Eastern Studies)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bryce is not the most compelling of writers, a bit dry and academic, but the history he tells is fascinating. Invaluable background to what is going on in this region of the world today.
