Origins: The Ancient Near Eastern Background of Some Modern Western Institutions
Origins is the first fully comprehensive study of the debt owed by modern western culture to Ancient Near Eastern civilization – a debt touched upon by standard histories of the Ancient Near East but never as systematically investigated as here by William W. Hallo.
The author, who has devoted a lifetime to the study of the Ancient Near East, places the emphasis on the way the Ancient Near East continues to shape our Western world. He takes an in-depth look at the ancient origins of many institutions that are most essential to contemporary life – and most often taken for granted.
