Thirty research papers by an international group of archaeologists redefine the cultural development of Northern Mesopotamia in the first half of the third millennium B.C. The papers reflect the latest understandings of society, economy and chronology, derived from excavations and survey in both Syria and Iraq, that lead to the "second urban revolution." Originally prepared for a Yale University conference in December 1988, these widely distributed and cited papers are now published in their revised texts, with figures and photographs, in a volume fundamental for West Asian archaeology.
