Staatsverträge der Bronzezeit: Lizenzen zur Bereicherung?
In the 14th and 13th centuries BC, the Hittite empire participates in a network of contracts between the Great Powers of that time. This paper puts these contractual relations into a bigger context that also accounts for the Hittites’ relations to their Western neighbours on the Aegean coast as well as to their Northern and Syrian neighbours. It shows that being a strong opponent of the other Great Powers like Assyria and Egypt secured an exclusivesphere of influence. Exploiting the less powerful neighbours, however, was a necessary condition for maintaining the political and economical power that ensured the position of the Hittite empire among the Great Powers. The Hittite strategy consisted of a number of elements: A superior military technology and strategy, a centralized administrative structure that allocated resources as well as revenues to balance internal political interests, and a – military-backed – deportation strategy that helped to fuel the labour intensive agricultural technology.We provide amodel of strategic interaction between the Hittites and their neighbours that also explains the balance of interests which lent stability to the system.
