THE CITY BESIEGED: SIEGE AND ITS MANIFESTATIONS IN THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST

Details

Exploring the military legal social and literary aspects of ancient warfare this study examines the multifaceted nature of the siege phenomenon in the Ancient Near East. The book is based on Akkadian and biblical (and to lesser degree Greek Aramaic Egyptian Hittite and Ugaritic) sources as well as on the depictions on reliefs from Assyrian palaces and Egyptian temples. The analysis incorporates lexical study and military thinking and focuses on the technology of warfare and human behavior in a state of emergency.
