This study of the peoples who interacted with the Israelites in biblical times comprises 13 essays in three sections on Mesopotamia; Anatolia, Syria-Palestine and Egypt; and Transjordan. Each essay covers in detail the origin, history, rulers, architecture, art and religion of one group - from the Sumerians of Mesopotamia to the Ammonites, Moabites and Edomites of Transjordan - and also describes their contact with biblical Israel. The book also includes lists of recommended reading, a chronology and a map.
