Reprint. Originally published: 2004.

This book traverses the ancient world's three great centres of cultural exchange - Babylonian Nineveh, Egyptian Memphis, and Iranian Persepolis - to situate classical Greece in its proper historical place, at the Western margin of a more comprehensive Near Eastern-Aegean cultural community that emerged in the Bronze Age and expanded westward in the first millennium B.C.
