Mesopotamian political history

Editor: Giorgio Buccellati

Associate editor: Marco De Pietri

This website offers an analytical coverage of the bibliography on the origin and development of Mesopotamian political institutions.

The website organizes the data around a central narrative as a frame of reference. This is currently provided by the book Alle origini della politica (Jaca Book 2013) / At the Origins of Politics (Routledge: forthcoming).

Extended summaries, critical reviews, and topical essays are interlaced with each other and with the main narrative, as well as with the other websites of the cluster.

An open forum includes a number of participants who contribute on a regular basis to the website.
