The first edition of Yaron’s Laws of Eshunna was published in 1969. The second revised edition is in many respects a new book. New material – from Tell Haddad, Ishcali, also from remote Elba - granted new insights. Increased attention was paid to comparison, especially with the Code of Hammurabi. Of continuing controversies, the discussion concerning muškenum, and concerning ºimdat šarrim may be singled out. A reconsideration of the English translation has resulted in many often, minute changes.
