520    "This book provides an integrated interdisciplinary 
       approach to the study of a complex and fascinating ancient
       material. A variety of aspects of ancient glass is 
       discussed including principally archaeology, history, 
       chemical analysis, materials science, geology and botany. 
       The aims of the book are to explore these aspects by using
       a combination of focused studies and case studies in a 
       variety of ancient and historical periods. Each case study,
       in Bronze Age Mesopotamia, Late Hellenistic-early Roman 
       Middle East and the Islamic world, has been selected so as
       to incorporate contrasting social, political, economic and
       ritual contexts in which glass was manufactured, traded 
       and used. These contrasting characteristics of societies 
       therefore influenced the ways in which glass fitted into 
       society: the ways in which it was manufactured and used. 
       The relationships between production, trade and use of 
       ancient materials including glass are complex. The scale 
       of production involving a range of facilities and critical
       combinations of raw materials from a variety of sources 
       were characteristic of the specific society and their 
       ideologies. Each step in the cha̋ne oppřatoire involved 
       decisions, each with a social impact and significance 
       leading to the manufacture of glass artefacts 
       characteristic of that society. The control over each 
       aspect of production was a reflection of the degree of 
       social hierarchy, (perhaps involving social elites) and 
       complexity at the time"--|cProvided by publisher
