This critical edition of the Neo-Assyrian prophecy corpus furnishes a detailed introduction that discusses the identity of the prophets, the structure of the texts, the date and historical context of the individual oracles, and questions relating to the nature of Assyrian prophecy. These prophecies have tight links to the cult of Ishtar and Assyrian royal ideology, mythology and iconography, and thus represent a genuinely Mesopotamian phenomenon.

"Parpola's provocative foray into comparative religion should make this work attractive to a broad range of scholars outside of the parochial confines of Assyriology. The first-rate editing of the Assyrian prophecies should make the volume an important contribution to specialists in Assyriology and a wide range of fields in religious studies."--William M. Schniedewind, UCLA in Religious Studies ReviewVol. 25, No. 1, January 1999
