"This volume concludes with the publication of the late E.R. Lacheman's copies of Nuzi tablets, with a Cumulative Catalogue including those published in the volumes 9/1 and 9/2; also sundry indexes. The preceding eighty-one pages are devoted to seven articles relating to Nuzi. Two deal with aspects of economic life at Nuzi, two with problems of Hurrian (and Urartian) language, one with the activities of scribes at Nuzi, one with a court record involving the river ordeal, and one on Nuzi pottery."--W. G. Lambert in SOTS 1997
"The first section in this fifth volume of the 'Studies on the Civilization and Culture of Nuzi and the Hurrians' series contains articles on such topics as the history of the Hurrian state of Arrapha, aspects of the Nuzi texts as well as questions of government policy, law, and archaeology.
"The second section comprises the final segment, pp. 87-357, of 'Excavations at Nuzi 9' featuring a cumulative, synoptic catalogue, SMN Index, room list, list of scribes, and copies of the cuneiform texts, numbers 50-523."--V.H.M. in Old Testament Abstracts Vol. 19, 1996
"This very rich volume demonstrates once more, that the study of the cuneiform texts found at Nuzi has become a flourishing subdiscipline of Assyriology. While assyriologists will appreciate the drawings of Nuzi-9 tablets no. 50 to 523 (with brief descriptions of contents on p. 94 ff), others will by preference turn to the seven general studies collected in the first part of the volume. Of particular interest is Paola Negri Scafa, The Scribes of Nuzi and their activities relative to arms according to palace texts (53-69). He demonstrates that about one fourth of the scribes had activities other than drawing up documents. Scafa surveys texts that reflect scribes in charge of organizing the production, distribution, and withdrawing arms."--Internationale Zeitschriftenschau fur Bibelwissenschaft und Grenzgebiete Vol. 41: 1994/95
