This reprint of Anspacher’s seminal work on the reign of Tiglath Pileser III is the historic first attempt to provide a succinct account of the reign of this Assyrian king. Tiglath Pileser III, known from several biblical texts, marked the beginning of the powerful Neo-Assyrian Empire. Anspacher presents, in an accessible format, the information known at the time about Tiglath Pileser’s accession, his southern and western expansions into Media, Urartu, and Syria, as well as his conquest of Babylonia. For the more technical reader, an introductory chapter on the sources behind Tiglath Pileser’s reign is included.

Abraham Samuel Anspacher (1877-1927) was a Rabbi in Scranton and Hazelton, Pennsylvania. He earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University.
