"Pollock's writing flows easily and does not obfuscate her materials." Choice
"Pollock is blessed with an enviable ability to explain these matters clearly and concisely, so her work makes a fine textbook for students as well as philologists and nonspecialists seeking an up-to-date account of early Mesopotamian history. I learned a great deal from her book and found it as excellent teaching tool as well." AJA
