The History of Ancient Palestine
From The Publisher:
In this magisterial work the history of the peoples of Palestine from the earliest times to Alexander's conquest is thoroughly sifted and interpreted. All available source material – textual, epigraphic, and archaeological – is considered, and the approach taken aims at a dispassionate reconstruction of the major epochs and events by the analysis of social, political, military, and economic phenomena.
The book, chronologically structured, is indispensable for the study of the Hebrew Bible and of the ancient Near East.
