Further Reading Westbrook 2003a is a valuable comprehensive history of ancient Near Eastern legal systems with separate chapters by specialists on different periods of Egyptian, Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian, Assyrian, Israelite, and international law, including extensive bibliographies and excellent indexes. Early 6 TREATISE, 6 - FROM THE ANCIENT GREEKS TO THE SCHOLASTICS concepts of law are discussed in general histories of the ancient Near East, including Saggs 1989, chap. 9, Soden 1994, and Snell 1997.
