Review of Tadmor and Yamada, RINAP 1 (Review)
Author(s): John MacGinnis
Publication: Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society
Date: 1/1/2013
Abstract: Final paragraph of review: In conclusion 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. It can be hoped that in the fullness of time the gaps in our knowledge of Tiglath-Pileser’s annals may be filled and that historical inscriptions of Shalmaneser will come to light: when they do, this work will provide the foundation and the framework for their eventual incorporation. Assyriologists, archaeologists and historians must unite in the deepest gratitude for this exceptional contribution.
