"The fourth volume in a series sponsored by the International Scholars Conference of Ancient Near Eastern Economies (ISCANEE) and the Institute for the Study of Long-Term Economic Trends (ISLET) addresses the extent to which accounting practices actively shaped economic life. This volume traces the aims and functions of accounting practices from early Uruk (c. 3300 B.C.) down through the Neo-Babylonian period, as well as Egyptian practice. Described are the accounting techniques that diffused from Sumer eastward to the Iranian plateau and, to the northwest, up the Euphrates through Syria and across the Mediterranean to Crete and Mycenaean Greece."--BOOK JACKET.
