Nine - Ceasing Empire

from Part III - Empire of Things


Chapter 9 re-examines Hittite imperial decline and collapse in the light of two post-collapse communities and their divergent engagement with, and rejection of, its material and ideological heritage. What comes after political collapse, what is abandoned, and what continues to be re-produced in the generations that follow illuminate critical facets of imperial practice and structure on the one hand, and spotlight decisions and processes that contributed to political disintegration on the other.
