"A new edition of the corpus of oracular queries from the reigns of Esarhaddon and Assurbanipal continues the Neo-Assyrian Text Corpus Project realised by the Academy of Finland in cooperation with Deutsche Orient Gesellschaft. "In the present edition are included texts previously published by Knudtzon and Klauber, copies of as yet unpublished texts are added. The oracular queries are a very important text source of the Neo-Assyrian history because they are free of tendentious and highly ideological editing which characterizes the royal inscriptions. "This edition makes available a very important group of sources for everybody interested in this civilization of the first millennium B.C. The texts are presented and analysed with admirable lucidity and perfection usual for all volumes of SAA series."--Jana Pecirkova in Archiv Orientalni 60, 1992
