Book description
In this magisterial work the history of the peoples of Palestine from 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, chronologially structured, is indispensible for the study of the Hebrew Bible and of the ancient Near East. Gosta Ahlstrom, a native of Sweden, at the time of his retirement in 1988, held a joint appointment at the University of Chicago Divinity School and at the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations. Among his other recent books are Royal Administration and National Religion in Ancient Palestine (1982) and Who Were the Israelites? He died in 1992. (From book jacket)
