Mari in Retrospect

Fifty Years of Mari and Mari Studies

Edited by Gordon D. Young

Excavations in the Middle Euphrates Valley over the past fifty years have profoundly altered our understanding of the history of Mesopotamia, Syria, and Palestine. The discovery of Mari (Tell Hariri), with its extensive cuneiform library, is at the center of these developments. Originally presented at a joint annual meeting of the Middle West Branch of the American Oriental Society and the Midwest Region of the Society of Biblical Literature (held at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago), the essays included in this book survey fifty years of Mari studies. Thirty-seven pages of indexes provide ready access to the wealth of information contained in these essays. Illustrated with photos and maps.
