5.0 von 5 Sternen for everyone interested in Egypt and Ancient Near East
This is a general history of the developing and changing relationships between Egypt, Canaan, Israel and Palestine. A solid academic work, it is divided into three sections and is backed by extensive references. the first part deals with the comparative prehistory and history of Egypt and the Levant down to the time of the Hyksos. The second part deals with the New...

1.0 von 5 Sternen A broad scope and lots of detail, but very hard to read
The subject matter of this work is compelling, and those seriously interested in this period should have access to it. Unfortunately, however, it is extremely difficult to read. The book attempts to cover quite a lot of ground, politically and culturally as well as historically, but it lacks overall thematic continuity. It presents an extensive survey of scholarly...

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Egypt, Canaan, and Israel in Ancient Times (Taschenbuch)
The subject matter of this work is compelling, and those seriously interested in this period should have access to it. Unfortunately, however, it is extremely difficult to read. The book attempts to cover quite a lot of ground, politically and culturally as well as historically, but it lacks overall thematic continuity. It presents an extensive survey of scholarly literature (with copious bibliographical notes), but this is used more as raw content than as illustrative material for a high-level view of the historical flows and currents of the times, and it not organized for easy reference. An occasional insight into the great forces which shaped the history of the period can be drawn out with some effort, though, but this is not a satisfying process, and the book leaves the impression that there is much more basic matter to be understood and realized about those ancient times than it reveals. Although the text is liberally punctuated with minor analysis, it is missing an important central view. There is an enormous amount of detail, but no big picture emerges. Its very title is exciting, but it fails to meet the high expectations it encourages, and aside from the author's personal opinions scattered here and there, it has very little to say that is original. In summary, this is an overly-ambitious project that comes across as a disappointing, uninspired compilation, an almost mechanical academic exercise more than anything else. And on top of these already-formidable challenges, the author's writing style, with its excessive dependence on thoroughly obscure vocabulary and arcane foreign phrases, too often makes comprehending what he does have to say a burdensome task (you will need a good dictionary at your side).

5.0 von 5 Sternen for everyone interested in Egypt and Ancient Near East, 17. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Egypt, Canaan, and Israel in Ancient Times (Taschenbuch)
This is a general history of the developing and changing relationships between Egypt, Canaan, Israel and Palestine. A solid academic work, it is divided into three sections and is backed by extensive references. the first part deals with the comparative prehistory and history of Egypt and the Levant down to the time of the Hyksos. The second part deals with the New Kingdom and its Asian Empire. In the third part, the discussion moves to four of the origin stories from the Bible : Creation, Table of Nations, Sojourn and Exodus, and Story of Joseph. Anyone interested in the early history of Egypt and the Ancient Near East should enjoy this book.
