"The author has succeeded in producing a useful compendium of stand-alone essays covering some of the often-glossed-over aspects of ancient Mesopotamian civilization. The book is sure to become familiar reading to students of the ancient Near East―a testament to its merits."―Michael Danti, Biblical Archaeologist
"The great merit of the book is that Potts tries always to bring in what the written cuneiform record has to say about his subjects, and he frequently succeeds in making juxtapositions that are strikingly informative and in putting matters in a new light."―Daniel C. Snell, American Historical Review
"This excellent book covers many important subjects that are not discussed in more conventional treatments of ancient Mesopotamia."―Jerrold S. Cooper, The Johns Hopkins University
