Beginning some 5000 years ago, civilized societies emerged allong the banks of four great river systems across the Old World - the Nile, the Euphrates, the Yellow, and the Indus. Older than any but the Mesopotamian, the Indus Civilization endured longer and extended farther than any of its Old World. In this account - abundantly illustrated with maps and photographs, archaeologist Jane McIntosh addresses what we know about the rise and fall of the Indus civilization, what it might be reasonable to speculate, and what we still hope to learn. She relies on a growing body of archaeological and linguistic evidence to draw a portrait of Indus society from the inside, while also brilliantly piecing together a wider picture of the Indus Civilization with information gleaned from its trading partners in Mesopotamia, the Persian Gulf, the Indian subcontinent, and Southwest Asia.
