ABOUT THIS BOOK

A critical resource that traces the reign of Sargon in context


Josette Elayi's book is the only existing biography of Sargon II, the famous Assyrian king, who was a megalomaniac and a warlord. Elayi addresses such important questions, including what was his precise role in the disappearance of the kingdom of Israel; how did Sargon II succeed in enlarging the borders of the Assyrian Empire by several successful campaigns; how did he organize his empire (administration, trade, agriculture, libraries), and what was the so-called sin of Sargon?


Features:



  • Interpretations of decisive events during the life and reign of the Assyrian king

  • An evaluation of Sargon II s reign

  • Maps, tables, and illustrations
