Ah, Assyria . . . Studies in Assyrian History contains 30 essays on ancient Near Eastern history and historiography, spanning the entire range of Mesopotamian history, from Sumer to the Persian Empire. Contributors investigate previously unpublished texts for the first time and reexamine longstanding works with fresh eyes. The majority of these studies are devoted to the Neo-Assyrian period, the research focus of Hayim Tadmor, to whom this volume is dedicated.
