The Textual Criticism of Sumerian Literature
by Paul Delnero
Drawing from a detailed analysis of the different types of textual variants that occur in the numerous duplicates of a group of ten compositions known collectively as the Decad, this book aims to provide a much needed critical methodology for interpreting textual variation in the Sumerian literary corpus which can be applied to editing and analyzing these compositions with improved accuracy.

On the Third Dynasty of Ur
Studies in Honor of Marcel Sigrist
edited by Piotr Michalowski
The Ur III period (2112–2004 BC) was one of the more significant periods in the history of ancient Mesopotamia. We would not have so many published texts at our disposal if it were not for the tireless efforts of Marcel Sigrist of the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem, whose scholarship and generosity are celebrated in this volume in twenty-seven essays by an international group of grateful experts.
