Using the evidence of complex societies ranging from the ancient Sumerians and Persians to the Chinese Manchus of the 17th century, this book, originally published in 1989, gives an overview of the constraints under which civilization operated before the Industrial Revolution. Patricia Crone (1945–2015) identifies the characteristics shared by such cultures: she analyses the organization of their agriculture, economy and politics, the role played by religion, and the relationship between society and the individual.
