By Sally on March 6, 2013
Format: Paperback
I found that the work was actually quite insightful and informative. The author does not seem to be making the argument between "Assyrian, Chaldean and Syrian", rather I think this was simply a body of work that chose to highlight the particular works of a collective region.

Perhaps this is not the forum to make the "Assyrian-Chaldean-Syrian" argument as it was not my impression that this was the goal of the author. While conducting research for my own senior thesis, I found that even for the year in which this book was published, it was still quite helpful. Well done and well researched. Bravo.

Format: Paperback
The author has so carelessly gathered some selected titles of Assyrians, ancient Chaldeans, Syrian, and some strange unrelated Islamic studies, animals' life, Armenian population, Reports on Kurds, How the Turks ruled Armenia, The Odes of Solomon, general Christianity, and much more and bunched them together in a very unprofessional manner.
In his introduction, the author stated, quote: "The modern history,beginning approximately with the first century AD consist of the history of literature, society, culture and religion of Assyrian, Chaldian and Syrian people." unquote.
The above speaks loudly for itself.

It is so important to clear these important issues:
1. The modern day Assyrians are the descendent of the ancient Assyrians.
2. The modern Chaldean title is a term given by the Roman Catholic Church to the Assyrians, wrongly titled Nestorians, who became Catholics, a process that began in 1552 and materialized in 1830 in Mosul, Iraq. There is no connection whatsoever between the ancient Chaldeans who lived predominantly in southern Mesopotamia with the modern-day religious term, Vatican invented, Chaldeans, who have lived in the heart of Assyria, the region of present day Mosul, since time immemorial.
3. The term Syrian is very confusing. A westerner may very easily assume it to mean the modern Arabs living in the modern Arab country Syria. There is no connection between the Assyrians and the Arabs of Syria (today's Syrians). The term 'Syrian' pronounced as such, is the English equivalent to the Greek pronounciation of early Christians living in the region that was Assyria (northern Mesopotamia).
There is no way one can describe what this work stands for. It is a mediocre way to show who was who in ancient times and who is who in present time. I cannot say anymore.

This book is FILLED with references for books on Assyrians/Chaldeans/Syriacs and their history, language, culture, and religion. It is a truly invaluable resource. It is out of print, but I searched the net and luckily found a copy...
