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 period was marked by dynamic interactions o f the different ethnic groups with different cultural and economical background which culminated in creating the earliest forms o f life and labour organization in the city-states along with the first systems o f government, the appearance o f written language and writing down the first law collections. 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.
