This volume presents the legal and administrative texts in the Iraq Museum at Baghdad that date to the Fara, Pre-Sargonic, and Sargonic periods, and that stem from illicit excavations. Sixty-eight of the seventy-four texts presented are published for the first time.

"My general impression of the book is that it reflects the very high standard of scholarship evident in the work of P. Steinkeller, who has perpetuated and in many respects improved upon the deep knowledge of the early administrative documentation taught by his mentor at the Chicago Oriental Institute, I. J. Gelb. While the editing of a disparate collection of tablets is a task of often unrewarding drudgery, Steinkeller's imposing, detailed knowledge of the text corpora of the periods treated, of text formulae and in particular of third-millennium lexicography, leads his discussions of the respective texts into highly interesting avenues of thought, with a number of provocative and timely excurses."--R. K. Englund in Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
