    1. This is one of those books written to impress other scholars in the same field instead of written to educate the general public. As such it is long on commentary and commentary about commentary with little actual flood myth translation.

    2. This guy turns a critical eye on state-building. He's frighteningly intelligent and it's true I have to get through 'Sanctioned Violence' and 'Writing & Authority' first.
