The Ancient East is a book by British archaeologist David George Hogarth, first published in 1914. The book covers the history of Babylonia and the surrounding areas from 1000 B.C. to 400 B.C. Civilisations covered in the book include the Assyrians, the Asiatic empire of Egypt, the Hatti, Mesopotamia, Chaldea, Syria, the Empire of Sargon, and more. It also has a chapter on the victory of the West, which includes Alexander's conquest of the East. Simple and readable, no footnotes, written in clear language, it goes into considerable detail for such a short book.
