MEDIA REVIEWS

“There is so great a wealth of material here that scholars probably will be identifying analogies with biblical and other ancient Near Eastern texts for many years to come.”—Richard S. Hess Denver Journal

“Letters to the King of Mari is a significant contribution to the study of Mari. It will, I am sure, be consulted regularly by students as well as by scholars and will open up this fascinating corpus to a broader public interested in the history of the ancient Near East.”—Nathan Wasserman Review of Biblical Literature

“With rigorous methodology, trenchant analysis, a thorough grasp of the subject matter, and a wry wit, the author provides an insightful guide through the maze of shifting alliances and political and military maneuvering that characterized the final years of Mari before its destruction by Hammurapi.”—John Gee Review of Biblical Literature
