The book provides a historical reconstruction o f the social institutions, economic and political structures of Southern Mesopotamia and its neighbours in Early Antiquity.

The study relies on exhaustive research o f the numerous epigraphic evidences (Sumerian and Akkadian cuneiform texts), excavated artifacts and the interpretation o f the archaeological record as a whole. The book is accessible to a wider audience, while it also provides a wealth o f new material to the specialist in the field.
