    Best to look for the details to this complex set of questions in:

    Bauer, Susan Wise - The History of the Ancient World: From the Earliest Accounts to the Fall of Rome. New York: Norton: 2007

    and

    Durant, Will - The Story of Civilization: Volume 1: Our Oriental Heritage. New York: Simon and Schuster: 1935

    These, being scholarly works, include bibliographical material which you may want to check out as you do your further research.

    All of this should be available at a nearby library.

    I can't tell you much, but here is what I know. Sumer was around the same time as Egypt. Egypt the more powerful country as it maintain itself while the Middle East was taken over by different groups over a short period of time. It did suffer from civil wars that helped weaken the civilizations ability to fight a stronger enemy. What the Sumer civilization is probably best known for it's temples known as a Ziggart.
