|Responsibility:||by Edward Bleiberg.|
Having established a model that allows him to arrange the data and fill in gaps in the evidence, Bleiberg analyzes the use of the word inw in the available sources, including jar seals and labels, royal inscriptions and documents, and literary texts. His survey of the sources leads to useful conclusions about the nature and development of inw-exchange. He shows how the custom, in keeping with the preindustrial model, resulted from a social obligation to transfer goods to a political or religious institution. The institution, in turn, was obligated to redistribute the goods on the basis of kinship, friendship, status, or hierarchy. In periods of central control, the king was always a party to inw-exchange; the effect was a stronger bond between ruler and subject, or conqueror and conquered.
