Abstract: The dissertation is a history of the early states of the region known nowadays as Kurdistan. The first emergence of these states in the written records of Mesopotamia and its neighbours. The history of the region in the period covered by the dissertation is scarcely known and studied, but the discovery of new inscriptional material and some archaeological finds, made it possible to write this history and study the development of the petty states into a unified empire towards the period covered by this work, i.e. in about 1500 BC.
