Tracing the development of civilization in Egypt, The Levant, Mesopotamia, India and China, this text provides coverage from the Neolithic period to the emergence of the State. In each case, the ecological and economic background to growth, the geographical factors, cross-cultural intersection and the rise of urbanism are all examined. The volume also explains how particular forms of social structure and interaction developed in each case. Charles Keith Maisels seeks to challenge traditional assumptions that civilization is rooted in class structure - claiming that the industrial civilization was large and complex yet functioned for a long period without social classes.
