The rise and fall of the Egyptian, Assyrian, and Hebrew empires are connected in that their rise resulted from civilization and expansion while fall resulted from divisions by newcomers. For example, in the Hebrew empire, civilization resulted from adopting agriculture (McKay et al., 2011). However, Philistines lead to the empire’s downfall since they migrated and established a kingdom in Canaan. Despite establishing a monarchy that defeated the philistines after the monarchy, the Hebrew empire was divided into Israel and Judah. Babylonians and Assyrians wiped out the empire.(253 words)
