It may also be a ruling of people reluctant to give up carefully nurtured empires, which are governed by supreme and extensive political dominion, with absolute control and paramount influence. In years bygone, this was mainly the position or dignity of an emperor, now very rare. In a few cases, throughout history, an empire-builder (a person who added to a territory) sought to increase his or her country’s authority. A good example would be that of the British Empire who often employed a British overseas administrator, whose responsibility would be to sustain the governed areas and to handle the activities regarding the building of the worldwide empire. According to scripted historical events, there were many empires in the world, where some are still taught in schools.< Less

Written by a senior biblical scholar at the British and Foreign Bible Society in London, this book has its roots in the author’s personal investigations of a series of inscriptions he... More > discovered while on missionary work near Damascus in the Middle East. Convinced that he had found the first reference to the Hittites outside the Bible, the author then produced the first major work on the Hittite culture, examining them in terms of their own writings, and those of the surrounding civilizations, Egyptian and Assyrian alike. The book then moves on to an evaluation of the geographical extent of the Hittite empire, its art and learning, religion, and racial makeup. Wright used the Bible as a reference point, but he also incorporated non-biblical references and sources, ensuring that the overview remained as accurate as possible, given the ancient—and often obscured—nature of the Hittites.< Less
