"Norman Cantor delivers this compact but magisterial survey of the ancient world, from the birth of Sumerian civilization around 3500 B.C. in the Tigris-Euphrates valley (what is now present-day Iraq) to the fall of the Roman Empire in A.D. 453. In Antiquity, Cantor covers such subjects as Classical Greece, Judaism, the founding of Christianity, and the triumph and decline of Rome." "In this analysis, the author explores social and cultural history, as well as the political and economic aspects of his narrative. He explains leading themes in religion and philosophy and discusses the environment, population, and public health. With his signature authority and insight, Cantor highlights the great books and ideas of antiquity that continue to influence culture today."--Jacket.
