Kurzbeschreibung

18. November 2004
In dealing with a wide range of aspects of the life, activities, and customs of the Late Bronze Age Hittite world, this book complements the treatment of Hittite military and political history presented by the author in The Kingdom of the Hittites (O.U.P., 1998). Through quotations from the original sources and through the word pictures to which these give rise, the book aims at recreating, as far as is possible, the daily lives and experiences of a people who for a time became the supreme political and military power in the ancient Near East.

Pressestimmen

Combining lucidity with scholarly rigour and displaying an informed and thoughtful response to the topic, this well-written book will be of particular value to university students and ancient historians. It deserves also to find a place in the wider market. Times Higher Education Supplement Trevor Bryce is the most successful - and responsible - popularizer of Anatolian studies active today. An authority on the Luwians of the second millennium and Lycia of the first, he has already produced a highly readable history of the Hittites and has now presented us with a survey of Hittite culture. Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Synopsis

In dealing with a wide range of aspects of the life, activities, and customs of the Late Bronze Age Hittite world, this book complements the treatment of Hittite military and political history presented by the author in "The Kingdom of the Hittites" (OUP, 1998). It aims to convey to the reader a sense of what it was like to live amongst the people of the Hittite world, to participate in their celebrations, to share their crises, to meet them in the streets of the capital or in their homes, to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of a healing ritual, to attend an audience with the Great King, and to follow his progress in festival processions to the holy places of the Hittite land. Through quotations from the original sources and through the word pictures to which these give rise, the book aims at recreating, as far as is possible, the daily lives and experiences of a people who for a time became the supreme political and military power in the ancient Near East.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best recent survey of the subject in English 29. November 2004
Von Suppiluliuma - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Trevor Bryce is a highly regarded specialist in Hittite history. His scholarly articles focus on problems of Hittite history, mainly matters affecting the western half of the Anatolian peninsula -- Ahhiyawa and the Lycians. The first of his two recent books published by Oxford (of which this is the second), entitled "The Kingdom of the Hittites", shows the fruit of his close engagement with the best and latest research. In this second book, the subject of which is not quite as much his specialty, Bryce has written a lively and accurate account of what life was like in the ancient Hittite world (c. 1650-1150 BC). The chapter headings indicate his approach, which personalizes the subject matter. Instead of chapter headings like "Law", "Religion", "Art", "literature", etc., Bryce focuses on the person who operates in these spheres: scribes, priests, judges, farmers, craftsmen. In so doing he allows even old hands in his discipline to appreciate the information they already possess as seen in a new light, and makes comprehending the subject easier for first-time students. Oxford University Press has not cluttered the page with footnotes, but ample documentation is available in unabtrusive endnotes. For a hardback edition the rice too is reasonable, chiefly because the press did not indulge in glossy plates or maps. Readers who feel the need for more graphics should also buy J. G. Macqueen's book "The Hittites" which has a plethora of plates. Highly recommended for readers from high school through retirement home.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Half of the Best Book on the Hittites 19. Mai 2011
Von Arch Stanton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is one part of what is essentially a duology. Trevor Bryce wrote two books on the Hittites, one dealing with their history and the other with their culture and society. This book is the latter. If you want a book that will tell you how the Hittites fit into the Near Eastern world then this isn't the book for you. You want Bryce's other book. This one is solely a cultural history, although it does include a king list at the beginning. It is surprising how much information there is available on Hittite culture considering that everything we know is based on tablets unearthed from archives. Not surprisingly there are many gaps, but this book lays out the basic map of what it was like in Hittite times. Instead of dividing it into general sections like Religion and Religion Bryce has focused each chapter on a particular career such as that of a scribe or a priest. This gives it a much clearer focus and lets the reader see clearly how that segment of the population lived. It is strongly recommended to read the companion piece as well since a full understanding of this people requires both angles.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Review of Bryce's 'Life and Society' 11. Juni 2010
Von Ryan Mease - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is an extensive consideration of different social aspects of Hittite society. It covers every basic niche--political leadership, merchants, farmers, priests, marriage, slavery, etc. There is also a very interesting essay at the end that looks at the relationship between Greece and the Near East, and consider the Homeric cycle as an orientalized work. Endnote aren't very helpful, and Bryce occasionally used phrases that annoy me. "More or less, by and large, greater or lesser, etc."--pick one and stop waffling about your position. Never mind me; this is a great book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An essential companion book to Hittite history 11. Juli 2011
Von Evelyn Sue Coon - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I read this book after reading The Hittite Kingdom, Trevor Bryce. This book is an essential companion book to the study of Hittite history. The book brings alive the individuals who built one of the greatest kingdoms of their time. The book can stand on it's own, but makes far more sense when read with the political history. The Hittites are amazing people and it's a little scary that so few people ever heard of them. Perhaps that is our lesson for the present. Sue Coon

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable survey of Hitttite culture, law and daily life for a general audience 17. August 2012
Von Christopher Culver - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Upon its initial publication in 1998, Trevor Bryce's The Kingdom of the Hittites was acclaimed as the best English-language history of the Hittite empire yet, but it was mostly a fairly dry listing of which king succeeded which. As a follow-up, Bryce offered something that focuses more on the Hittite little guy, or at least little guys important enough to leave traces in cuneiform texts.

LIFE AND SOCIETY IN THE HITTITE WORLD consists of thirteen chapters that each focus on some particular demographic. Sure, chapter one concerns only that kingly sphere that Bryce's earlier book did, but then we get depictions of what life might have been like for scribes, farmers, merchants, warriors and healers, as well as descriptions of marriage, religious observance, funeral rites and popular mythology.

This is an entertaining book, and a necessary complement to Bryce's earlier history. It could be improved, however. One weakness is that although Bryce is clearly indulging in a lot of speculation (the phrasing "X may have Y" is seemingly on every page), there is no chapter describing the sources used so we can get some feel for how firm his vision of Hittite life might be. Sources are briefly described, but only in footnote citations that will be help more to specialists than the wide audience this book is directed at. Also, the last chapter, which muses on what debt Greek mythology and poetics might have to links with Bronze Age Anatolia, feels somewhat out of place here.
