Trade and economic life of the Ur III period (2112-2004 B.C.E.) is here revealed through a study of documents in cuneiform, the remains of a complex Mesopotamian bureaucracy that meticulously recorded many of its activities.

"Meticulously researched. . . . A valuable contribution that will enable the economic historian to begin to study early Mesopotamian society on the solid basis."—Miguel Civil, The Journal of Economic History

"This is an important contribution to the economic history of antiquity as a whole. It will be of interest to those studying the history of accounting, business practices, money, merchants, bureaucracy, and the role of the state in trade, as well as to those interested in economic and historical theory and related subjects."—Marvin A. Powell, Journal of the American Oriental Society
