This book introduces the history, society, and religion of the Hittite Empire, from its origins in the nineteenth century BCE, through the height of the empire in the seventeenth to twelfth centuries BCE, to the eclipse of the Neo-Hittite cities in the eighth century BCE. Collins demonstrates the importance of the Hittites for understanding both the biblical and classical traditions.

Features:

  • Thirty maps, illustrations, and images
  • New finds that expand our knowledge of Late Bronze Age Anatolia
  • Sections for further reading for students to dig deeper into Hittite history
