Considered by many to be a modern classic, Ancient Israel offers a
fascinating, full-scale reconstruction of the social and religious
life of Israel in Old Testament times. Drawing principally on the
text of the Old Testament itself, as well as from archaeological
evidence and information gathered from the historical study of
Israel's neighbors, de Vaux first provides an extensive
introduction to the nomadic nature of life in ancient Israel and
then traces in detail the developments of Israel's most important
institutions-family, civil, military, and religious-and their
influence on the nation's life and history. "The timely reprint of
the English translation of de Vaux's monumental work.makes this
available again for all students of the OT at all levels.. This
collection of data is still relevant, reliable and a good starting
point for these sociological studies." --Society for Old Testament
Study Book List "A monument both of progress in biblical exegesis
within the Catholic tradition and of mainstream biblical
scholarship in the middle decades of this century." --Journal of
Near Eastern Studies
