It should be a Sumerian - English dictionary.

But only the words with an A and a B are mentioned. It is not a book, but a compilation of mainly google facts and pictures . And also with many faults, for example a drawing of Catal Hoyuk in Midwest Anatolia is described as an Sumerian village. I think it is a shame that Amazone is selling this 'book'.

As I saw, many reviewers are quite critical of the works of this author. Notwithstanding, I decided to go against the stream and ordered this book, though without any expectations. And I was right: as a dictionary, the book quite resembles the worthless lexicon of Halloran: no cuneiform characters, all in Roman transliteration, and very few very brief entries. Besides, it contains several dozens of b/w photographs of various archeological Sumerian buildings and artifacts, sort of additional reading for curious children of 1950s complete with some stories and trivia.
To be honest, I completely refuse to comprehend how these writers dare to assemble ancient languages' dictionaries without putting in even a single native character. Or maybe the writer believes that his readers are from some forgotten county in Idaho and Roman letter are complicated by themselves and should be mastered before any cuneiform... Eh?
