Abstract:

"The Assyrian Heritage: Threads of Continuity and Influence is a compilation of essays analyzing Assyrian culture through language, rituals, and symbols. The theoretical interpretations and methodological approaches covered in this book narrate the topic of the Assyrian heritage past, present, and future. Broadly, this work situates the relevance of Assyrian cultural continuity using multidisciplinary approaches for conceptualizing and reframing the contemporary historical discourse of the Assyrian legacy.

As the first work of its kind, topics covered in this book vary from the development and evolution of national and ethnic identity to cultural genocide. The geographic areas discussed encompass all of the Middle East as well as the diaspora communities in Europe and North America. The work is divided into three sections. The first examines the aforementioned issues from the ancient to the medieval period. The second focuses on language and identity construction, and the last engages with issues relating to contemporary social and political topics.

Drawing from a range of disciplines including Assyriology, Aramaic/Syriac studies, linguistics, law, anthropology, economics, psychology and religious studies as well as history and political science, The Assyrian Heritage reinserts the Assyrian question into academic discourse and sets the standard for future work on the Assyrians and their influence within the world."--Pub. desc.
