From the Foreword: "This book is intended to serve as a general introduction to Mesopotamian astrology, both its outward phenomena and its inner structure....I have tried to sketch the history of traditional astrology in Mesopotamia, from its origins in the third millennium to its transformation during the latter half of the first millennium; but the main emphasis has been placed on the neo-Assyrian period, especially on the period of the Sargonid kings, since this is the time when Bablyonian astrology seems to have been at the height of its importance."
