Item description for The Inscriptions of the Indus Civilization by Rainer Hasenpflug...

( World Novelty! One of the biggest mysteries of world history is now solved. The deciphered texts of the ancient south Asian high culture in present-day Pakistan and India from the time between 3000 and 1700 BC are available for the first time here. All of the approximately 2000 texts are arranged and analysed so that the content is now clearly understandable for everyone. The result is the complete self-description of the Indus Civilization which is also known as the Harappa Culture and the Sindhu Sarasvati Culture. The Indus Civilization is already known as the largest and one of the most developed contemporary ancient cultures - at the same level with the then Egyptian and Mesopotamian cultures. Even in some fields, like town building, it was already known as the most progressive society in the world. Its popularity has suffered until now only from the less intimate knowledge due to its unreadable inscriptions and the lack of discovered pyramids. Many attempts of deciphering had failed in the past because of several fatally incorrect prejudices and unrealistic assumptions. It has now been discovered that the system of inscribed stamps was a highly advanced national education program of high-grade, intelligent leaders. Nothing was there by chance. Not only was a system of syllabics and pictograms discovered, but also countless logical cross references like the logical connection of the texts with the accompanying pictures, the consequently followed system of symbolic numbers, metaphors, phrases, curses, etc., as well as the Indian/Persian/Indo-European religious system and Sanskrit language, the traditional values of the society whose roots go even much further back in the past, the tribal structures, the international relationships, the social and political problems in this early time, and much more. Finally the Indus Civilization is in fact shown as the mythological Vedic age. Altogether the texts are a manifest of the high intelligence of our ancestors 5000 years ago. The book is laid out in a consequential, objective, logical and scientific method, but with high-grade understandability - as the German author, a graduate engineer of town planning and architecture, is used to working. The phantastic utopias of some authors in the past are strictly rejected here by the inscriptions themselves. But the reality is much more amazing.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Inscriptions of the Indus Civilization?

Builds upon Parpola and Schildmann's assumptions  Sep 5, 2006
Hasenpflug assumes like two of his well known predecessors that the pictorial billinguals contain the names of the animal shown in the picture. He then proceeds to read the name in the direction the animal is looking. The results are fairly consistant for the seals shown in the book. The famous fish sign stands for "sa" with vowel variations like si, su depicted with distinguishing marks on top. The phonetic signs learned from the first step were used to decipher pictograms with presumabley no text on them. I am not sure how this was done. The decipherment does not warrant all the conclusions, especially reagrding Rama's reign, reached by the author.
