What do we know of the real Nebuchadnezzar? Was there an historical precedent for the mythical Gilgamesh? Who were the Hittites? When did Isaiah preach? How did Jezebel get her reputation?
These and many more questions are answered in this fascinating survey of the people who inhabited the Near East between the twenty-fifth and the second centuries BC. From Palestine to Iran and from Alexander the Great to Zechariah, Who's Who in the Ancient Near East presents a unique and comprehensive reference guide for all those with an interest in the ancient history of the area. A comprehensive glossary, chronological charts, maps and bibliographical information complement the biographical entries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This lucid, compact dictionary offers especially rich entries on Mesopotamian kings and local rulers whose inscribed seals, cuneiform court records and monuments provide much of what we know about them and their societies. Biblical rulers are not neglected from the pre-eminent to the relatively obscure."
-"Biblical Archaeology Review
"A much needed guide to a subject for which few reference aids exist at the college level...."
-"Choice
"This work is in essence a biographical dictionary of people who were important and whose memory survived. It is clearly intended for a non-specialist audience. Leick has a very useful introduction...the entries are brief and contain short bibliographies for further reading, mostly to works that are fairly accessible."
-Religious Studies Review
