Abstract:

"Ancient Canaan and Israel: New Perspectives presents the great cultural traditions of ancient Israel and unearths their archaeological, historical, and literary past. Charting the region's cyclical course of expansion and decline through three main waves of settlement, this work focuses on environmental perspectives and cultural ecology in ancient Israel and also explores religious practices, political and social organization, art and architecture, metalworking, intellectual accomplishments such as the alphabet, and even the origins of Mediterranean cuisine."

"Did the Israelites infiltrate or invade ancient Canaan? What deities did ancient Canaanites worship? How did the alphabet emerge? Did the great temple of Solomon really exist? For both experienced scholars and enthusiastic newcomers, Ancient Canaan and Israel is an enlightening portrayal of the people and the land of the region, which traces many well-known spiritual and cultural traditions back to their ancient roots. It is also an objective introduction to a number of much-debated topics, such as the fate of the Canaanite cultures, the origins of the Israelites, and the historical accuracy of the Bible."--Jacket.
