Item description for Provincial Taxation in the Ur III State (Cuneiform Monographs) by Tonia M. Sharlach, Jake Tebbit, Graham A. Worth, Arno Georg, Olaf Katenkamp, Shelly Innes, Open University & B. Teissier...
This volume investigates the relationship between the central government and the provinces during the Ur III period (2112-2004 B.C.). Specifically, the book focuses on one system of taxation known as "bala," or "rotation," so called as provinces' payments rotated month by month throughout the year. This work is the first to take an interarchival approach, discussing Sumerian tablets from Umma, Lagash and Puzri-Dagan, and is the first major synthesis of what has long been recognized as a fundamental institution. The book contains six chapters and detailed appendices (including charts, the edition of approximately 150 previously unpublished tablets and bibliographical material).
