Publisher's Summary

Explora la fascinante historia de los sumerios

La gran importancia de la cultura sumeria en toda la cultura mundial es evidente y crucial. Esta civilización es la única responsable de algunas de las innovaciones más importantes en prácticamente todos los aspectos básicos para mantener una sociedad civilizada: incluyendo la religión, la legislación, la arquitectura, la educación, el arte, la literatura y hasta el entretenimiento.

Naturalmente, la mayoría de lo que vemos actualmente como aspectos negativos de la sociedad también se estableció en la antigua Sumeria. No hubo un aspecto de la vida sumeria que no estuviera plagado de corrupción o devastación de una u otra forma. En otras palabras, los sumerios nos dieron la sublimidad de la fe y la rigidez del pensamiento religioso junto con el deseo de supremacía política. Nos dieron tanto a los monarcas benévolos y afectuosos como a los tiranos crueles y castigadores; el niño educado y el niño mimado; el agrario trabajador y el fiestero borracho; y los imperios épicos, así como también los restos patéticos de ellos. Los sumerios lo hicieron todo, y lo hicieron ellos primero.

Algunos de los temas y preguntas que se encuentran en este libro incluyen:
 

  • Un resumen de los antiguos sumerios.
  • La estructura social de los antiguos sumerios.
  • La religión y la mitología de los antiguos sumerios.
  • La cronología de los reinos sumerios.
  • La vida cotidiana de los antiguos sumerios.
  • Las innovaciones sumerias.
  • La cultura sumeria.
  • La política exterior de Sumeria: las relaciones con otras naciones.
  • ¡Y una gran oferta que no querrá perderse!

Absolute exciting written

This is a well-written book and very informative. It really sheds light on a little-known culture in a way that is not so academic as to be a difficult read. Very good!

Although I'm still LISTENING to the AUDIObook it seems to be well written and full of the information I was hoping for. I had no idea so much information existed on the ancient Sumerians until I read this book.

understanding of Sumer

This is one of the best books ever written on any ancient culture. One of the nicest things is extended passages from original source documents. Captivating books are written on ancient civilizations only give very brief excerpts.

Interesting view of an ancient civilization

An excellent history of a little-known society that may have functioned perhaps 1000 years.A better understanding and perspective of the origins of civilization. I found the Appendices interesting, particularly the laws and farmers instructions.

Some very interesting info in this book

I did not know much about the Sumerians, but this was a fine basic introduction. I read it in conjunction with Captivating History's other book on Sumerian mythology. Both are highly recommended.

Good

A great book for anyone who is seeking to learn about the ancient Sumerians. Written by one of the first archaeologists to dig in what was once Sumer. clearly, these records and the need for writing them were likely the equivalents of today's electronic communication which has shortened language and communication even further;

The best

It provides a detailed account of the discovery of the Sumerian culture, as well as details of the archaeological digs in which Sumerian artifacts have been found. Luckily for us, the Sumerians left quite a bit of writing behind, which leaves evidence of their religion, culture, daily practices, and knowledge of the world.
