Jul 04, Asoss rated it really liked it. This is a very good book. It is an updated version of the german version. It is an recommendable book, If someone wants to know about the Hurrian History.
I was inspired by this book that it marked the beginning of my journey to study the history of the ancient Near East. Not only does it talk about Hurrians, but also their contemporaries like the Assyrians, Egyptians and the Hittites.
I strongly recommend it for people who care about the ancient near east. May 20, Robert Murphy rated it liked it Shelves: library. This text is a translation of the German book, but with a few updated facts and an expanded bibliography by the translators.
While not immediately relevant to Biblical Studies or History, it is clear that the people whom the Bible calls Hittites, or Hivites or Horites are the Hurrians. That is to say, they are the major empire in the Palestine that the Bible describes the People of Israel finding in disarray and conquering.
Neither secular nor theologically-minded historians are yet able to cons This text is a translation of the German book, but with a few updated facts and an expanded bibliography by the translators. Neither secular nor theologically-minded historians are yet able to construct a coherent picture of all the went into the Bronze Age collapse of the second millenium B.
The Hurrians play a central role in the history of the ANE up until the first millenium and any history worth its salt must include them and their contribution.
This book is very helpful to me in my research into the name in Genesis 23 and elsewhere in the Bible, proof that many of them are Hurrian names. There is good inclusion of primary sources but very little summation or concluding. This is a dry tome but a fair introduction to Hurrian society and history.

Hurrians (Ancient Near East Series)
The Hurrians. Gernot Wilhelm. The Hurrians were one of Ute principal contributors to ancient Near Eastern civilisation and yet we know fer less about their language, history and culture than we do about the Sumerians, Assyrians or Hittites. In this book, Professor Wilhelm has gathered the scattered threads from a great range of sources between and BC, to give the first ever survey of the Hurrians. Professor Wilhelm is one of the world's principal authorities on Hurrian language and history, and the book is therefore highly authoritative, although written for the general reader. The text has been specially brought up to date by the author for this edition, and an extra chapter on the archaeology, with additional illustrations, has been contributed by Dr Diana Stein. The Hurrians is essential to everyone studying the ancient Near East, and provide a starting point for future research into this important civilisation.
