From these letters, this group of scholars have drawn fascinating inferences about the nature of international law, relations, policy, and even spying and political intrigue among the great and little powers of the world as it was 3300 years ago. It is interesting to see how far we have come, how different international relations are today - and yet, how some things have not changed all that much.
This is a scholarly work, not light reading, but very interesting to anyone with an interest in history or international law and diplomacy.
