This work presents for the first time in its entirety the long Sumerian poem describing the destruction and suffering in Babylonia during the final days of the Third Dynasty of Ur. The text is both an important work of native historiography and a moving literary composition. The author's introduction places the work within the Sumerian literary tradition, and evaluates it as a historical source. Indexes and copies of unpublished texts are included.

"We are grateful to Michalowski for this excellent book, which is highly recommend to both groups of readers."--Bendt Alster, Helsingor, Denmark in Journal of Near Eastern Studies
