The Mechanics of Empire

The Northern Frontier of Assyria as a Case Study in Imperial Dynamics

Bradley J. Parker

This study of the Assyrian empire utilizes the vast corpus of archaeological and textual data from the Mesopotamian Iron Age (ca. 1000–600 B.C.) to address current debates about ancient imperialism. The importance of this work reaches beyond historical reconstruction to offer significant new insights into the nature of frontiers, secondary state formation, culture contact, imperialism and colonialism in the ancient world.
