"This lucid, compact dictionary offers especially rich entries on Mesopotamian kings and local rulers whose inscribed seals, cuneiform court records and monuments provide much of what we know about them and their societies. Biblical rulers are not neglected from the pre-eminent to the relatively obscure."-"Biblical Archaeology Review "A much needed guide to a subject for which few reference aids exist at the college level...."-"Choice "This work is in essence a biographical dictionary of people who were important and whose memory survived. It is clearly intended for a non-specialist audience. Leick has a very useful introduction...the entries are brief and contain short bibliographies for further reading, mostly to works that are fairly accessible."-Religious Studies ReviewFrom the Publisher:
