Among the well-preserved ancient archives in Niniveh and Nimrud there are many cuneiform tablets which reveal the existence of secret service networks used by the Assyrian court to communicate with provincial officials during the 8th and the 7th century B.C. Using this vast material the author shows in great detail how the Assyrians collected, transmitted, and double-checked sensitive information. This study also includes an in-depth analysis of the activities of the Assyrian espionage involved in Sennacherib's invasion of Judah described in 2 Kgs 18-19.
