Between 3,500 and 3,000 B.C. when Egyptwas being united under pharaonic rule, another great civilization arose in Mesopotamia, the“land between the rivers”.And for close to three thousand years, the two rival centers retainedtheir distinct characters, even though they had contact with each other from their earliestbeginnings, and their destinies were interwoven in many ways. The pressure that forced theinhabitants of both regions to abandon the pattern of Neolithic village life may well have beenthe same. But the valley of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, unlike that of the Nile, is not a narrowfertile strip protected by desert on either side. It resembles a wide, shallow trough with fewnatural defenses, crisscrossed by two great rivers and their tributaries, and is easily encroachedupon from any direction.1.
