Zimansky investigates the reasons for the surprising emergence of a centralised state in the inhospitable, highland areas on the Eastern border of Turkey in the 9th century BC. Using both archaeological and textual sources, the author discusses Urartian history in detail and shows how the presence of the massive Assyrian empire was a major structuring force.
