"Beautifully produced and rich in contents, this volume is a fitting tribute to a man who has devoted a lifetime to investigating, editing, and analyzing a rich harvest of texts recovered during the 1920s at Yorghan tepe, near Kirkuk. The unearthing of Nuzi texts helped to resurrect the culture and language of the Hurrians, which permitted a group of mostly American cuneiformists to begin decoding the biblical past according to the practices of second millennium BC civilizations."--Jack M. Sasson, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in Religious Studies Review(Vol. 8, No. 3, July 1982)

"The Anniversary Volume in his honor was edited by two of his former students and contains contributions from many friends and colleagues. It remains an inspiring and beautiful tribute to a beloved teacher and dedicated scholar."--Samuel Greengus, HUC-JIR, Cincinnati in Journal of the American Oriental Society(104.2, 1984)

"For many decades E.R. Lacheman systematically made fine hand copies of Nuzi tablets, for which he received little credit during his lifetime. Many were left unpublished when he died in 1982, and fortunately two American scholars have joined in completing this task. Hand copies of 161 tablets are given, checked against the originals, with a catalogue. They have been selected by the archives from which they come, and the first part of the book makes detailed studies of the various business families, relating the tablets to the find spots."--W.G. Lambert in SOTS Booklist
