The Greek name Mesopotamia means 'land between the rivers.' The Romans used this term for an area that they controlled only briefly (between 115 and 117 A.D.): the land between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers, from the south Anatolian mountains ranges to the Persian Gulf. It comprises the civilizations of Sumer and Akkad (third millennium B.C.) as well as the later Babylonian and Assyrian empires of the second and first millennium. Although the 'history' of Mesopotamia in the strict sense of the term only begins with the inscriptions of Sumerian rulers around the 27th century B.C., the foundations for Mesopotamian civilization, especially the beginnings of irrigation and the emergence of large permanent settlements, were laid much earlier, in the fifth and fourth millennium. The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Mesopotamia defines concepts, customs, and notions peculiar to the civilization of ancient Mesopotamia, from adult adoption to ziggurats. This is accomplished through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, appendixes, and hundreds of cross-reference dictionary entries on religion, economy, society, geography, and important kings and rulers.

This is economics (see, monetary economics) and corresponding economic history and focuses on what the book title suggests: money and market developing from their very beginnings. First, some crucial (,,hot’’) historical points are here identifyed: the market picture before money entering history, then getting national and international through what was the ,,gold standard’’; money out of its metal ,,base’’ or ,,cover’’; money as national and international after gold. Second, a substantial debate reaches another level of developments: ,,representative’’, versus ,,fiat’’ money (?). Third, how about international money, as different from national (scale) money in context?

Yahweh's injustice, cruelty and crimes against little girls, women, and wives. Published by Times Square Press New York. There is no book, no law, no scroll, and no inscription in the history of humanity, civilizations and religions, which degrades and disgraces women more than the words, the decrees, the laws and the commands of Yahweh (The God of the Hebrews/Israelites) as clearly written ad infinitum in verses of the Bible (The Old Testament). The author's arguments, findings, and conclusions are solely and exclusively based upon the Old Testament (Jewish Bible) and what God (Yahweh) himself said word-for-word about wives, women and girls, and what he ordered or allowed his "Chosen" People to do to wives, women and girls, as written in the Bible (Old Testament). Thus, he presents irrefutable facts and findings without personal interpretation, and free from biased and subjective analyses. He is neither analyzing the Old Testament nor interpreting the Old Testament, the Torah, or the Talmud.
