Description: 132 pages : illustrations ; 23 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeISBN: 1718662203; 9781718662209Other title: Captivating guide to ancient Sumerian history, Sumerian mythology and the Mesopotamian empire of the Sumer CivilizationLOC classification: DS72.C378.S864 2018COPYRIGHT NOT covered - Click this link to request copyright permission: COPYRIGHT NOT covered - Click this link to request copyright permission: https://lib.ciu.edu/copyright-request-formSummary: "The sheer importance of Sumerian culture in regards to world culture as a whole is impossible to overstate. This civilization is single-handedly responsible for some of the most major innovations in nearly every field relevant to maintaining a civilized society - this includes religion, lawmaking, architecture, schooling, art, literature, and even entertainment. Naturally, most of what we see as negative aspects of society were established in Ancient Sumer as well. There wasn't an aspect of Sumerian life that wasn't plagued with corruption or devastation of one form or another. In other words, the Sumerians gave us both the sublimeness of faith and the rigidness of religious thought coupled with a desire for political supremacy. They gave us both the benevolent, caring monarchs and cruel, punishing tyrants; the educated child and the spoiled brat; the hard-working agrarian and the drunken reveler; and the epic empires as well as the pathetic remnants of them. The Sumerians did it all, and they did it first."--Back cover.
