Good introduction to the history of cuneiform writing. Dec 16 2012
By William S. Monroe - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book will not teach you to read cuneiform, but it deals with the history of the writing, and of reading and writing in general in ancient Mesopotamia. Written by a respected scholar in the field, but for a lay audience. The author has some definite opinions, and points out where controversies lay (such as in the extent of literacy in the ancient Near East). A good book for anyone who may be interested in the history of reading and writing.
