The Royal Inscriptions of Tiglath-pileser III (744–727 BC) and Shalmaneser V (726–722 BC), Kings of Assyria (Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period 1) carries on where the Assyrian Periods sub-series of the Royal Inscriptions of Mesopotamia (RIM) Project ended. The volume provides reliable, up-to-date editions of seventy-three royal inscriptions of Tiglath-pileser III and of his son and immediate successor Shalmaneser V, eleven late Neo-Assyrian inscriptions which may be attributed to one of those two eighth-century rulers, and eight texts commissioned by Assyrian queens and high-ranking officials. Following the style of the now-defunct RIM series, each text edition (with its English translation) is supplied with a brief introduction containing general information, a catalogue containing basic information about all exemplars, a commentary containing further technical information and notes, and a comprehensive bibliography.
RINAP 1 also includes: (1) a general introduction to the reigns of Tiglath-pileser III and Shalmaneser V, the corpus of inscriptions, previous studies, and dating and chronology; (2) translations of the relevant passages of Mesopotamian king lists and chronicles; (3) several photographs of objects inscribed with texts of Tiglath-pileser III and Shalmaneser V; (4) indices of museum and excavation numbers and selected publications; and (5) indices of proper names (Personal Names; Geographic, Ethnic, and Tribal Names; Divine Names; Gate, Palace, and Temple Names; and Object Names).
The RINAP Project is under the direction of G. Frame (University of Pennsylvania) and is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

[T]his first volume of the RINAP series does an excellent job of introducing students of Akkadian to the royal Assyrian inscriptional literature. — Michael Moore, in Review of Biblical Literature (2014)
The importance of this volume can scarcely be overstated. . . . Although there is a relatively modern edition of the inscriptions of Tiglath-Pileser III already in existence . . . numerous improvements have been made, the texts have been reorganised and significant new material added, particularly that from the tombs of the queens in Nimrud. . . . Tadmor and Yamada have given us a work of outstanding value for which it is difficult to find words of adequate praise. This magnificent new volume will without question serve for scholars in all fields and for years ahead as the standard edition of the inscriptions of Tiglath-Pileser III and Shalmaneser V, two kings whose reigns together constitute a period which can be considered the lynchpin in the formation of the Assyrian empire. — John MacGinnis in Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society> 23 (2013)
The second volume of the new Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period series (RINAP) to be published in 2011, Hayim Tadmor and Shigeo Yamada?s The Royal Inscriptions of Tiglath-pileser III (744?727 BC) and Shalmaneser V (726?722 BC), Kings of Assyria represents a welcome revival of the Assyrian periods sub-series of the now-defunct Royal Inscriptions of Mesopotamia Project (RIMA) that had been overseen by A. Kirk Grayson. *mdash; John P. Nielsen in Journal of Near Eastern Studies 73.1 (2014) 131-36
The RINAP series, that extends and complete the RIMA project, provides scholars with thorough editions and formally standardized tools for investigating and interpreting both the creative activity of composition of the royal records and the history of the neo-Assyrian period. The first volume of this series is therefore particularly welcome as an important contribution to the on-going research on the Assyrian empire. — Simonetta Ponchia, Zeitschrift für Assyriologie 106 (2016) 114–25
