Assyrians: The Continuous Saga

This book provides chronological references on the continuity of the Assyrian people and culture since the fall of the Assyrian Empire to modern times.

Assyrians have been deprived of their rich heritage in their ancestral homelands in Mesopotamia. From one side, history curriculum taught in the Middle East's public schools is manipulated and it focuses predominantly on the region's Islamic era. Such curriculum is grossly altered and rewritten to suit a meticulously planned ‘Arabization,’ ‘Turkicization,’ and more recently Kurdification process of the Assyrians. From the other side, some historians question the continuation of ancient Assyrian civilization and people. Furthermore, certain Old Testament non-favorite images of Assyrians are dominant in literature. Thus, unbiased publications and historical references regarding the survival of Assyrians since the fall of their Imperial capital Nineveh are of great importance.

Professional Reviews

Prof. Simo Parpola, University of Helsinki
This is a very important and much needed book that should have been written long ago. The author traces the history of the Assyrians from the fall of their Empire to the present day and convincingly demonstrates the unbroken continuity of Assyrian identity through the millennia in the middle of endless persecutions. This dispassionate yet captivating book corrects many misconceptions about the Assyrians, both ancient and modern. It is a must for every modern Assyrian and Assyriologist, and of considerable interest to the general public as well. I personally started reading it from Chapter 10, "The so-called Assyrian cruelty," and couldn’t stop reading.
