Overview The magnum opus of Ahlstrom who founded a school of historical studies at the University of Chicago to counteract what he felt were the prevailing literary approaches in North America. He labored on and off for decades on this dispassionate reconstruction of the major epochs of Israel's history by tapping all known textual, epigraphic, and archaeological evidence.
Publishers Description 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-textural, epigraphic, and archeological-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.
