KINGSHIP AND THE GODS - 1st 1948 - ANCIENT EGYPT MESOPOTAMIA DIVINITY RELIGIONS
KINGSHIP AND THE GODS: A STUDY OF ANCIENT NEAR EASTERN RELIGION AS THE INTEGRATION OF SOCIETY AND NATURE
Book Details + Condition: The University of Chicago Press (Chicago). First Edition, 1948. By H. Frankfort. Hardcover with dust jacket. 412 pages plus Index. Illustrated. "This classic study establishes a fundamental difference in viewpoint between the peoples of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. By examining the forms of kingship which evolved in the two countries, Frankfort discovered that beneath resemblances fostered by similar cultural growth and geographical location lay differences based partly upon the natural conditions under which each society developed."
