Description:
Mesopotamia, 'the land between the rivers,' has been brought by Time's revolution once more into the foreground of the history of the world. The plains where Abraham, Isaac and Jacob tended their flocks and herds; where the hosts of Sennacherib, Shalmaneser and Alexander contended for 'world-power' in their day; where the Arabs, heirs of ancient civilizations, reared a civilization of their own until it fell under the blight of Turkish dominion: have become once more the battle-ground of opposing armies, the representatives of conflicting spirits and ideals.
