Synopsis

Covering the time span from the Paleolithic period to the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 B.C., the eminent Egyptologist Donald Redford explores three thousand years of uninterrupted contact between Egypt and Western Asia across the Sinai land-bridge. In the vivid and lucid style that we expect from the author of the popular Akhenaten, Redford presents a sweeping narrative of the love-hate relationship between the peoples of ancient Israel/Palestine and Egypt.

Format: 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).

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.

A phenomenal work, which is of immense use and interest to both professional and amateur Egyptologists, as well as those more generally interested in the Near East

5.0 von 5 Sternen A well-written introduction to the ancient Levant 31. Januar 2013
Von Richard E. J. Burke - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
My son and his wife, both of whom are Ph.D. archaeologists focused on the Levant, recommended this book to me as essential to my researching a series of novels. My research library for this project has grown to over 60 essential books, and this book earned its way near the top. Redford's writing style is clear, precise, and enjoyable. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting an overview of the Levant in the bronze and iron ages. It has also been widely used as a textbook, which is a form of professional imprimatur.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Masterful Study 31. Oktober 2009
Von E. L. Bess - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Naturally as an Egyptologist Redford relates the history of the Near East from the angle of Egyptian activity and thought, beginning from pre-dynastic times and following through to Assyrian empire, focusing mostly on Egyptian intercourse with Syria-Palestine, whether that be in the form of its control over its peoples, trade relations with them, or hostility towards them. (or in the case of the Hyskos, subordination) The origins of several Semitic groups, including the Israelite community, and those of different stock are explained, and there is a tangent of two chapters on the influence of Egypt on the Israelites in the political, ideological, cultic and literary spheres. All the events discussed acuminate with Nebuchadrezzar's destruction of Jerusalem, and an epilogue of two pages ends on a kind of cheesy note. But forgiving this, *Egypt, Canaan, and Israel in Ancient Times* is anything but a cheesy work. This is knitty-gritty historiography which far from 'attractively presents for the lay reader' anything. (see the review comment on the back cover by the *Journal of Palestinian Studies*) Nothing about Redford's book, excepting the pictures, maps, and tables perhaps, is 'lay'. That is, unless the laity in perspective are scholars who just aren't Egyptologists. Those unaccustomed to this kind of reading, with all its jargon and impressive eloquence, will find it overbearingly pedantic. Otherwise, you'll love it, as I did, and it will be easy enough to follow along. The footnotes are usually short and to the point, citing references with little or no comment, so no real worries about a choppy read, eyes moving constantly athwart between main text and footnote. (I hate that for myself) I would like to have seen provided a chronological chart for the periods discussed. I have other ready resources for this, but of course not everyone would. I wouldn't mind a bibliographical list either.

I only gripe with the fact that Redford gets a little caustic when he addresses biblical studies, and gives off the impression that all or most biblical scholars are 'apologists' for the historicity of the biblical tradition. This is misleading and in some cases I would say unfair. His passion for his own field erupts through the pages at this point, as is evident, e.g., from the first-person pronouns (268 & 421, when the norm of self-reference everywhere else is 'the present author') and remarks such as: 'At least we can thank such writers for providing us with comic relief.' [n.113, p.310] I don't think he should have crossed so antipathic to a field he's not an expert in...then he would not have made a mistake such as: 'The absence of the Exodus tradition from early Biblical material should also be noted.' [n.76, p.410]; but then not long later: 'Despite the lateness and unreliability of the story in Exodus, no one can deny that the tradition of Israel's coming out of Egypt was one of long standing. It is found in early poetry (e.g., Exod. 15) and is constantly alluded to by the prophets.' [412] My guess for such a contradiction is that he wrote the footnote some distance prior to discovering and writing the fact of the latter (despite their spatial closeness in the text) and never emended his error. However, on most counts I agree with the points he's making about biblical literature.

I'll be holding on to this one.

Fun Facts:

* There are multiple trivial flaws in this book of the humorous kind, like the sentence (64) ending with a comma ['...and perhaps disease, With all this...']; or the sentence (213) being interrupted by a period when it should have been a comma ['In fact, in the schematized scenes of tribute bringing. Syrian ornamental vases often stand symbolically...']; or the curious 'J. J. Rowley' for the proper 'H. H. Rowley'. (n.11, p.260)

* Redford states: 'The patient and observant reader will have noted that, up to this point in our study, no mention has been made of Israel' (257). This is false (172 & 237)

* Redford cites his wife, Susan Redford, once in n.63, p.271.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great text on a rich subject 8. Oktober 2016
Von Daniel P. Gehman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is very informative, and obviously extremely well researched. It is formatted with footnotes like a textbook, and that's what it felt like. Note the author comes from a secular perspective, which may be a little off-putting to Jews and Christians, but the content is certainly unimpeachable.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sometimes a tough slog, but worth it 5. Februar 2006
Von Eric C. Petersen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Redford has probably read every ancient inscription and has knowledge of every archiological site in Egypt-Middle east - as well as knowledge of every language written then. For the serious scholar of the region, book a must, both for its detail and his debunking of past popular "reasoning" about events in the area. For the casual reader, at times irritatingly challenging - he uses proper and place names often with no previous reference and maps are very sparse, and in tiny print. However, the overall sweep of history he presents is fascinating, but the sidebars - often for pages - into minutae a bit hairpulling - but, then again, one can skip these sections.
3.0 von 5 Sternen Review of Redford's book on Egypt, Canaan, and Israel in Ancient Times 3. Mai 2015
Von Gary Steffen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Very interesting book. Redford is at the top of his game. However, this is a very academic written book. It is not for a first time reader who has little or no knowledge of Ancient Egypt, Israel, or Canaan.
