ASHOOR

------------------------------------
Will start with one of the best Assyrian books written in the last 10 years or so:

'The Crimson Field' by Rosie Malek-Yonan



A tour-de-force, Rosie Malek-Yonan's "The Crimson Field" is a brilliant and gritty historical and literary novel with enormous implications. Uncompromising and un-flinching, it is based on real events and true family chronicles set to the backdrop of the Assyrian Massacres of 1914-1918 in Urmi, Iran. This is a unique triumph in that the Assyrian tragedy unfolds in an epic novel, the first of its kind, supported by actual painstakingly researched historical facts of a nation's raw and agonizing past; a nation that has never been fully healed of its bleeding wounds and still grieves for its fallen martyrs. Malek-Yonan's intense interest in her family s history that cannot be separated from her Assyrian heritage and historical events that have swept that nation in a deluge of bloodbath, began more than two decades ago.

Great book that links ancient Assyrians to modern.

7/10



The best book on Assyrian illustrations, I haven’t finished this yet.

6/10


Another book

Again another book on Assyrian linkage from ancient to modern i actually enjoyed this book more than Fred’s other book below.

7/10



This book is for people more interested in facts rather than a great story to read. I personally found it boring.
6/10

This is the book of all books amazing story some people say she goes over the top with her words
So either you love it or you hate it, you judge.

9/10


Nice story, but it’s not really a genocide book it’s more about the migration to the west.

6/10

Free_Assyria, good idea!

And I hope I won't need to remind you or anyone else again lol: if you are going to buy through Amazon, please do it through our affiliate:

http://assyrianvoice.net/amazon/

It is unfortunate that I continue to see people buying from there and forgetting to go through our channel, making us miss on lots of commission fees.

The best novel e v e r, at least for Assyrians !! The novel has two parts, here is a description for the first part "The Assyrian" (don´t know the name for its 2. part in English)

http://www.amazon.com/Assyrian-Nicholas-Guild/dp/0440201977

Quote
From Publishers Weekly
Set in ancient Ashur (called Assyria by Greeks), this absorbing epic novel dramatically portrays two royal half-brothers whose childhood camaraderie later gives way to acrimony and violence. Tiglath and Esarhaddon, sons of aging King Sennacherib, grow up amicably and share rigorous military training. Their friendship dissolves when the king's priest proclaims the gods' decree that Esarhaddon will be the next monarch. Resentful of Sennacherib's preference for Tiglath and not eager to assume his prospective duties, Esarhaddon dreads his fate, while noble Tiglath unhappily refrains from usurping the throne out of a concern for his country's well-being. Even more disturbing to Tiglath, however, is the certainty that his lover, comely Esharhamat, must become the future sovereign's bride. Reeling with grief, Tiglath leaves Ashur to become a seasoned conqueror worthy of his compatriots' homage, yet a momentous clash between him and Esarhaddon still awaits. Guild (The Berlin Warning masterfully describes court intrigues and the feverish panorama of the battlefield, but the book's abundant merit lies in its timelessness and universality. This story of a passionately moral man torn among amorous longings, the seductiveness of power, fraternal emotion and cognizance of his nation's welfare holds many contemporary implications. Major ad/promo.
Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal
In a quick moment of bravery, indicative of the man-to-be, young Tiglath Ashur stays the hand of the priest who is about to make him a eunuch. Assyrian law in the 7th century B.C. required that all sons of a king but one be castrated in order that there be no question of the succession. Tiglath Ashur and his brother Esarhaddon are close friends from childhood. They share games, secrets, initiation into the warrior's world, and even the same woman, until the question of succession arises. Tiglath, the natural leader, is the popular hero, but treachery places Esarhaddon on the throne, thus replacing brotherly love with hatred. This sprawling epic of unbridled ambition is overlong with battles, tortures, and debauchery. Homeric similes and metaphors and careful detail do, however, re-create a little-known historical period. A map would have been helpful. For larger fiction collections. Joan Hinkemeyer, Englewood P.L., Col.

You have to read it, I promise you, you will LOVE it !!
In the past, I alwasy said, I will never read novels, I am not gay, but when I read "The Assyrian", I just thought, wow, and I was so sad when I finished reading the second part of this book.

And btw, there are many things which are historical correct, e.g. the surroundings, describtions of Niniveh or Babylon,the royal family and their characters, and so on.

And the way how this book is written gives you the feeling that you ARE actually in this story, you are actually IN ASSYRIA, the autor describes many moments and actions very detailed, e.g. in the battles, or in the sex scenes :D

You don't get a discount from using that search, Amazon donates part of the profits 4-6% to AVN's account. Which [I believe]Ashoor uses to help pay for the site to keep up and running.
It costs you nothing it's only amazon's way of donating.

sounds like another ridiculous book claiming that the anti-Christ will be an Assyrian.


Exactly why can't the anti-Christ be Assyrian?

I am reading this book right now, i started yesterday, unfortunately its in Swedish but damn it seems so good, it caught my attention straight away. Its a book about our situation, the war in Iraq, our future and some history. Even though it is officially "fiction" most of the things in the book has happened for real and it about people who do or did exist in real life.

I haven't read that far in it yet, but so far, it is about an Assyrian woman from Chicago who works as a news anchor at a bigger TV network. She goes to Iraq to do some coverage there, but gets caught by Muslims... i wont tell you more about that because i will ruin your reading :D

Anyway in the book they tell us how her grandfather fled from Iraq back in 1930 and ended up in the States where he met some other Assyrians and got at good life. And the story continues with Susan, the assyrian news anchor...  

For all you Assyrians in Sweden, this book is a MUST READ...

The book is called "The Line In The Sand " in English but i don't know where you can get it in English if it does exist. I cant find it online anway...

Like I said FA, this book is soo fantastic, it´s unbelievable :) It´s a MUST-READ!
I am sure, in the end you will say that it was the best book (or novel) you´ve ever read about Assyrians :)

And yes, it´s true, it was a protective measure to make less doubts about the royality of the children of the queen. Everybody in the women's house of the king and in the administration got cuted nuts.

Yes, there is. The second part is called "Tiglat - Sohn des Königs" in German, which means "Tiglat - Son of the King" in English. But problem is that the titles of books and films are not always a direct translation from language to language. You have to google that or so. I couldn´t find something, my google favors wibsites from Germany.

Yes, I did. And it is very nice, too, in my point of view not as good as the first part but definitely worth to read!
The 2nd part is continuation of the storry from the first part. Do you really want to know details about the content of the 2nd part? Don´t you want to surprise yourself? :)

Great book that links ancient Assyrians to modern.

7/10

Again another book on Assyrian linkage from ancient to modern i actually enjoyed this book more than Fred’s other book below.

Which of these two books do you recommend for most detail about Assyrians during early Christianity?

Gonna buy that "The Assyrian" novel. Seems good.

While searcing for something else, I found this link to a PDF copy of "The Church of the East: A Concise History". It is a short but good book that retails for something like $100. I don't know who made the PDF or anything about the hosting site, but its a good book to have a copy of  - PDF or otherwise:

Just saw this new book on Amazon. It is very new (just a few days old as per Amazon)

Assyrians post-Nineveh: identity, fragmentation, conflict and survival (672 BC - 1920): A study of Assyrogenous communities [Paperback]
Dr Racho Donef (Author)



Book Description
Publication Date: December 16, 2012

This study examines the distant past to see the connection between Imperial Assyria and the Assyrians in the nineteenth century and the hypothesis that the Assyrians identity is purely a western construct of the nineteenth century. There have been a number of studies, which discuss the Assyrians, continuity of their culture from Ancient times, and identity. However, this study examines a number of sources, which by and large, have not been utilised. Many travellers, missionaries, and explorers, travelled to the East between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries and wrote about the peoples they visited. Furthermore, there are Vatican sources, which up to now have not been used in the study of the religious schisms among the Assyrian communities. These primary accounts in French, Latin, Spanish and English and certain Greek sources shed light to the problematic. Sources in Turkish, often as translated documents from Arabic and Syriac, clarified the extant information.

New Book:  Liberating Iraq: The Untold Story of the Assyrian Christians



http://http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1939521009/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1939521009&linkCode=as2&tag=assyrianvoi04-20


This is the story of the Iraqi war written by one of the only people in Iraq without a minder. It is based on the author's own personal insights as an Assyrian Christian over a period of several years, which were drawn from meetings with the Iraqi Prime Minister, President, Foreign Minister, top US and international officials, and the Iraqi people themselves. It reveals what happened to the weapons of mass destruction, and it tells of the horrors experienced by those who worked for the Iraqi government and what life was like under Saddam. It describes the days leading up to the war, the first relief convoy to cross the border into Iraq following the war, and the tremendous success of the nearly 400,000 Americans who fanned out across Iraq to love and save the nation only to now be on the verge of seeing that success lost. Liberating Iraq will appeal to those who served in Iraq, their family members and anyone who wants to know the truth about what really happened.

The Line In The Sand: A political thriller about the war in Iraq by Swedish-Assyrian author Nuri Kino and  David Kushner

URL: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1480084921/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1480084921&linkCode=as2&tag=assyrianvoi04-20



A political thriller about the the Christian genocide in Iraq.The Line in the Sand is the electrifying story of a courageous woman, a TV journalist who decides to make a clandestine visit to northern Iraq investigating a rumor of an enormous oil find that would change the political equations of this war torn country. She finds herself in the midst of an ethno-religious cleansing of Christian Iraqis threatened by terrorists, greedy politicians and corrupted police officials. She is kidnapped, raped, denigrated and held as hostage by a terrorist gang led by a ruthless, former Saddam henchman. This sets off a furious and deadly hunt for her rescue involving a U.S. Army Ranger detachment, her friends in the tiny Christian community and her former bodyguard stubbornly determined to fulfill his obligation. A church is car-bombed during a wedding.

The deaths of an entire family and their friends are used as a scare tactic to force people to become refugees and leave their farm lands to be confiscated by greedy men. It is a depiction of one of the numerous churches that have already been bombed in Iraq. Over half of the 1.2 million Christians who lived in Iraq have already left - most to an uncertain existence as refugees in nearby countries. The Line in the Sand is an exciting story based on the true experiences of many Christian Iraqis where kidnappings and beheadings have become daily happenings. The once sophisticated and multi-ethnic, historic city of Mosul with the beautiful River Tigris running through it, part of the backdrop of the story, has become Iraq’s “Murder City,” divided up by the Sunnis, Shiites, Al Qaida and the Kurds with the dwindling Christian population as the victims of their crossfires. The Line in the Sand is a novel that offers a new insight to the tragedy of Iraq. It is an intimate look into some of the contentions that may push this nation into crisis and disaster.

An Assyrian - Dream The Mirza Family Story

This is the story of a young boy, Julius W. (Jay) Mirza, born into a Christian Assyrian Family, living in a Muslim nation, who emigrates from Iran. He and his little brother must leave the bosom of their loving family to seek an education in a foreign country in order to live a better life – a life of both personal responsibility and freedom.

He must enter a British boy’s school in India, without any knowledge of the English language. He will not see his family but once in six years. After graduation, his education takes him first to England, then America, where he graduates with a degree in Architectural Engineering.

The heart wrenching sacrifices of his parents for their son’s education finds full reward in Jay’s success in life – his architectural practice—his family, his home and his community involvement.

This is a story of an immigrant to America for whom, with hard work and dedication, the American dream came true.

The Assyrian (Tiglath Ashur Book 1)



Set in ancient Ashur (called Assyria by Greeks), this absorbing epic novel dramatically portrays two royal half-brothers whose childhood camaraderie later gives way to acrimony and violence. Tiglath and Esarhaddon, sons of aging King Sennacherib, grow up amicably and share rigorous military training. Their friendship dissolves when the king's priest proclaims the gods' decree that Esarhaddon will be the next monarch. Resentful of Sennacherib's preference for Tiglath and not eager to assume his prospective duties, Esarhaddon dreads his fate, while noble Tiglath unhappily refrains from usurping the throne out of a concern for his country's well-being. Even more disturbing to Tiglath, however, is the certainty that his lover, comely Esharhamat, must become the future sovereign's bride. Reeling with grief, Tiglath leaves Ashur to become a seasoned conqueror worthy of his compatriots' homage, yet a momentous clash between him and Esarhaddon still awaits. Guild (The Berlin Warning masterfully describes court intrigues and the feverish panorama of the battlefield, but the book's abundant merit lies in its timelessness and universality. This story of a passionately moral man torn among amorous longings, the seductiveness of power, fraternal emotion and cognizance of his nation's welfare holds many contemporary implications.

The latest book about Assyrians

Revival and Awakening: American Evangelical Missionaries in Iran and the Origins of Assyrian Nationalism By  Adam H. Becker (Author)



Quote
Most Americans have little understanding of the relationship between religion and nationalism in the Middle East. They assume that the two are rooted fundamentally in regional history, not in the history of contact with the broader world. However, as Adam H. Becker shows in this book, Americans—through their missionaries—had a strong hand in the development of a national and modern religious identity among one of the Middle East's most intriguing (and little-known) groups: the modern Assyrians. Detailing the history of the Assyrian Christian minority and the powerful influence American missionaries had on them, he unveils the underlying connection between modern global contact and the retrieval of an ancient identity.         

American evangelicals arrived in Iran in the 1830s. Becker examines how these missionaries, working with the “Nestorian” Church of the East—an Aramaic-speaking Christian community in the borderlands between Qajar Iran and the Ottoman Empire—catalyzed, over the span of sixty years, a new national identity. Instructed at missionary schools in both Protestant piety and Western science, this indigenous group eventually used its newfound scriptural and archaeological knowledge to link itself to the history of the ancient Assyrians, which in time led to demands for national autonomy. Exploring the unintended results of this American attempt to reform the Orient, Becker paints a larger picture of religion, nationalism, and ethnic identity in the modern era.

If we go by the title alone , neither of the words 'revival' and 'awakening' mean to create something that didn't exist before.

Both words are self-explanatory: something/someone is there already, but wasn't active or self-aware and something had to be done to bring them to their previous state.



Let us use a different fictional example: I was very passionate and knowledgable of playing the piano when I was 3-6 years old. Then, for the next 45 years or so, I not only forgot how to play it, I almost forgot the instrument even exists. Then I met someone who was a master at playing the piano and helped re-introduce me to it again and that is when my previous passion for playing the piano was reignited. He revived and reawaken my passion for the piano after I had all but forgotten about it completely. 

Ok, my example may not be perfectly applicable but it is to demonstrate the use of these two words.

Hello,


Can anyone recommend a good history book about the Assyrians circa 1000 AD that doesn't make false claims (i.e Chaldeans are the descendants of the Babylonians and as such are not Assyrians)? For example this book - http://www.amazon.com/Babylon-Mesopotamia-Civilization-Paul-Kriwaczek/dp/1250054168 

Thanks :)

I am currently reading this amazing book by Joel E. Werda from 1924:

The Flickering Light of Asia


It focuses on the genocide during WW1 mostly but also some years before. It goes into what happened in Ottoman lands but also a lot about Iranian lands, these amazing Assyrian military stories seem to be mostly forgotten throughout history so I highly recommend it for those who wonder about the Assyrian self-defense during Seyfo. The life and achievements of Agha Petros are highlighted quite a bit and it's a joy to read about, it also has many rare photographs. But perhaps the most powerful are the chapters about our dear patriarch Mar Shimun Benyamin and the heartbreaking tragedy of what eventually happened to him, God rest his soul.

I am currently reading this amazing book by Joel E. Werda from 1924:

POTENTIAL: The Assyrian Quest for Identity: What does it mean to be an Assyrian from a Christian perspective?

Paperback  – September 17, 2015
by Steve Netniss (Author)



Quote
[/What does Christianity say about ethnicity? This book is a retelling of the biblical story with an emphasis on ethnicity, along with an overview of the Assyrian people. It is written to Assyrians and Non-Assyrians who want to take a journey into the past that will help us to have new conversations about the future. This book will retell the story of the Bible and help us to see how the first Christians interacted with their own Jewishness. The Assyrian language, culture and memory is slowly disappearing. This is an engaging book with wide-ranging impact on how this ancient, Christian nation, formed thousands of years before the writing of the Bible, can deal quote]
