Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of ancient Anatolia, then pay attention....

What sparks curiosity about ancient Anatolia, which makes up most of modern-day Turkey, in the minds of history lovers is the diversity of its peoples throughout its territories and time. This audiobook seeks to present the most current view on the events that unfolded through the centuries of the Bronze and Iron Ages of Anatolia. The listener can follow the rise of some of the most famous empires in the world, as well as learn about the circumstances that led to their fall. From early settlements of nomadic tribes to the creation of vast empires, Anatolia changed its face numerous times throughout history. Not just territories and kingdoms changed, but the people inhabiting it also did so as well, in their language, culture, and religion.

Even though they were faced with a lack of evidence for certain periods of ancient Anatolia, or for certain peoples, historians seek to accurately paint the picture of the lives in all the various kingdoms of Anatolia. This audiobook follows the Hittite Empire in its rise and fall. It discusses the Arameans and the influence of their culture on the civilized world, as well as the influence of the Luwians and their dispersion throughout Anatolia. Even if they were never able to organize a united Luwian Empire, they changed all the kingdoms they came in contact with. The effects of this ancient civilization can still be felt today as certain dialects of the Luwian language still exist in Anatolia.

Useful, or incredibly educational work. It is all of those in implements, with top learners in various facets of Anatolian studies giving valuable summaries of the subtopics they were tasked with managing and offering perhaps even more valuable lists of each topic,

it's a great book

All the more interesting, since the topic matter lies at the intersection of so many relevant topics, it led me to tie together what was earlier separate or fragmented fields of thought.

This book covers the history of The Hittites and their excellent chariot creation and handling, The Assyrians and the intermixing of the two, thus the Hittites are conquered by assimilation.

An in-depth view of those civilizations that occupied the lands that today constitutes Turkey. I enjoyed how we are introduced to the different civilizations, to how they interacted with each other, and their strengths and contributions to the world.

I found many facts in this history which explained why this area of the world, which is in the news quite often today, developed to be the mixture of many different people from varied backgrounds which make up the population of the Middle East of today.
