Anton Gill charts the history of Babylon, home of the famous Hanging Gardens and a wonder of the ancient world in itself. Beginning with a survey of Ancient Mesopotamian dynasties, he chronicles the city's rise under Hammurabi, its troubled fortunes in the centuries that followed, its golden age under a dynasty of Chaldean kings in the sixth and seventh centuries BC, and the life of its last great king, Nebuchadnezzar II - himself a military genius, law-giver and architect of the marvellous city once called 'the gateway of the gods'. Studded with detailed profiles of the rulers of the period and embellished with colour illustrations, maps and timelines, Gateway of The Gods: The Rise and Fall of Babylon is a vivid and richly informative portrait of an extraordinary era.
