I realized in reviewing the bibliography of BFJB 2.0 that several items were accidentally omitted. I’ve always endeavored to provide thorough bibliographies for BFJB materials, if for no other reason than that bibliographies were a huge help to me in compiling the information on which BFJB is based.
The omitted entires are as follows:
- De Boer, Rients. (2014) “Early Old Babylonian Amorite Tribes and Gatherings And The Role of Sumu-Abum.” ARAM, vol. 26, no. 1&2, 269–284.
- Ebeling, E., Meissner, B., Weidner, E., & Soden, W. V. (1994). Reallexikon der Assyriologie und vorderasiatischen Archaologie. Berlin: W. de Gruyter.
- Fleming, D. E. (2004). Democracys Ancient Ancestors: Mari and Early Collective Governance. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
- Luckenbill, D. D. (1910). “Some Hittite and Mitannian Personal Names.” The American Journal of Semitic Languages and Literatures, 26(2), 96-104.

At this time, I do not plan on revising the PDF or print-on-demand versions on account of these omissions. In the event that I issue a revised edition (as I did with BFJB 1.0 two years after the initial release) I will probably update the files to include them then.
Finally, speaking of the print-on-demand edition of BFJB 2.0, I should receive (what I hope to be) the final proof this week. If everything checks out, I think we’re still on track to have that available by the end of March.
