Product Description
"Advice to a Prince" is an ancient (purported) Babylonian text from the Libraries of Assurbanipal in which a monarch is a given a list of warnings to heed... or else. This is not a well-known document, but perhaps should be. It is fascinating to see that a people from over 2,000 years ago still had an expectation of being justly ruled. Also, it is interesting to see that there are similarities between this text and the accusations Jefferson made against King George III in the "Declaration of Independence." Included in this product are a lesson plan, excerpts from both primary sources, a table to aid comparison of the documents, questions, and an answer key. Buy it or Ea, king of destinies, will hostilely pursue you!
