Early. Mesopotamian. Law. Norman. Yoffee. Edward Shils originally formulated
the terms center and periphery to describe how, in complex societies, "a tangled
skein of an infinity of ties" comes to "constitute a [societal] whole" (Shils, 1975:xii).
This center/ periphery terminology has been widely used in a host of disciplines
that concern themselves with the configuration of social structures, from sociology
(Eisenstadt, 1979), to ancient history (Larsen, 1979) and archaeology (Adams, ...

At first, individual were restricted to taking only certain measures in revenge.
Later, the right to take revenge was assigned or transferred to the sovereign, and
the government was bound by clear and specific criteria in carrying out the
revenge, criteria that are the key for the integration of punishment in criminal law.
As a purpose of punishment in criminal law, retribution has been known since the
dawn of human history. In early Mesopotamian law it functioned as the broad and
principal ...

1 INTRODUCTION Since Mesopotamia, the cradle of the civilizations of
Sumerians and Babylonians, has yielded the oldest legal sources known today,
one might expect them to figure prominently in the study of 'early law'. But what is
'old' or even 'oldest' in chronological terms is not necessarily 'early' in the sense
of reflecting the very beginnings, the first stages of law, as described in the
programme of this symposium. The chronological notion implied by the use of '
early' is less an ...

The previously mentioned texts can be regarded as consecutive stages within a
single tradition of Mesopotamian law. This does not imply that there did not exist
local differences (though these were not essential). One can observe how
methods for systematizing legal norms gradually evolved. The ancient
Mesopotamian law books certainly were not codes of law in the modern sense.
What we encounter here is the pretheoretical stage of legal development. At this
stage, some of the ...

This book is devoted to such an investigation of biblical law in general and to the
earliest biblical compilation, the Book of the Covenant, in particular. Since the
contribution of early biblical law can be fully appreciated only against a backdrop
of its own legal heritage, an analysis of the Mesopotamian concept of law is first
undertaken. This is followed by a study of the early Mesopotamian legal
collections, which are characterized by a manifest dichotomy of frame and corpus
