ISBN: 9781589830905


All the chronicle literature of ancient Mesopotamia, from the early second millennium to Seleucid times, is collected in this English translation of Glassner’s Chroniques Mésopotamiennes (Paris: Les Belles Lettres, 1993). In addition to revising and supplementing the French edition, this volume provides transcriptions of the cuneiform and English translations of every example of Sumerian, Assyrian, and Babylonian chronographic literature, as well as seminal essays on the genre and on Mesopotamian historiography in general.
