     This comprehensive and insightful study on the Late Bronze Age period that corresponds to the final phase of occupation at Urkesh includes an important section on the question of ethnicity (pp. 68-90), with special reference to the “Hurrians and Hurrianization”.
     She refers to Urkesh (p. 71) as the source of the earliest evidence for this question. She also refers briefly (p. 119) to “Terru's failure to impose his sovereignty on the town of Urkeš”.
