Stephanie Dalley explores the spread of culture through literacy from Mesopotamia into Egypt, Palestine and Greece after a system of writing was developed. By gathering evidence from a vast range of material and literary sources from 3000 BC onwards, threads of influence and continuity aretraced into the Middle Ages. The effect of rediscovery in recent times is evident in European art.

Editorial Reviews

"Useful in pointing out the great reach of Mesopotamian culture...This book presents an enormous wealth of data from literature, art, religion and science. It also examines the various cultures- Judeo-Christian, Greek, Roman, Parthian, Sassanian, early Islamic and Indian- that were inheritors of the Mesopotamian legacy."--Archaeology Odyssey "The Legacy of Mesopotamia is a treasure chest of surprises....we are all in debt to Professor Dalley and her colleagues for providing us with so comprehensive and lucid a guide to the evidence and scholarship on cultural interaction between Mesopotamia and her neighbors."--Ancient History Bulletin
