"Excellently written, arranged and signposted... The authors are to be congratulated on having included so much in so small a space."

"[This] cannot have been an easy book to write, and it is hardly surprising that there is no other quite like it: the collection and organization of material, the drawing together of evidence disparate in content and origin, the reduction of complex data to brief and intelligible statements, must all have been daunting tasks and one can only admire the authors' courage in attempting them and their skill in producing something which is, in spite of it all, both interesting and useful."

"Very readable... This revised edition will be a useful addition to any Near Eastern bookshelf."
