Abstract:

"Assyrians have been deprived of their rich heritage in their ancestral homelands in Mesopotamis (modern Iraq). From one side, history curriculum taught in most of the Middle East's public schools is manipulated and it focuses predominately on the region's Islamic era.... From the other side, some historians question the continuation of ancient Assyrian civilization and people.... Thus, unbiased publications and historical references regarding the survival of Assyrians since the fall of their imperial capital Nineveh are of great importance. This moderate work is a humble attempt to shed light on this survival" -- from cover.
