'Van den Hout has prepared an exemplary edition of this material, elucidating its philological difficulties, and drawing from it important historical data for a crucial period of Hittite history...This study will be of great interest to all Hittitilogists and to many ancient historians as well.' Gary Beckman, Journal of the American Oriental Society, 1999.
