The Correspondence of the Kings of Ur is a collection of literary letters between the Ur III monarchs and their high officials at the end of the third millennium B.C. The letters cover topics of royal authority and proper governance, defense of frontier regions, and the ultimate disintegration of the empire, and represent the largest corpus of Sumerian prose literature we possess. This long-awaited edition, based on extensive collation of almost all extant manuscripts, numbering over a hundred, includes detailed historical and literary analyses, and copious philological commentary. It entirely supersedes the author's oft-cited unpublished Yale dissertation of 1976.

The included CD includes various photographs at high resolution of many of the tablets included in the study.
