Chapter Summary

Second part of the book presents case studies on three specific themes or issues, devoting a chapter to each issue. It deals with law of succession, and in particular the position of the daughter-only child as possible heir to her father’s estate. The book then discusses the position of the daughter-only child in other ancient oriental laws, to show that there as well marital status is crucial for a daughter’s position according to the law of succession. It deals with guardianship both of minors and of women. Guardianship is a subject that has attracted much scholarly attention over the years, especially as a number of documents in the Babatha archive, P.Yadin 12–15, 27 and 28–30, are all related to guardianship issues.
