Ancient Israel - Harry M. Orlinksy
Cornell University Press, 1954
(Development of Western Civilization series)

Series Note:
Series editor: Edward W. Fox.

"Widely used both as basic texts and as supplementary reading in Western Civilization and European History courses, the volumes in this series present lively interpretative essays by leading scholars. Taken together, the books comprise a survey course in Western Civilization from its beginnings in Ancient Greece Israel through the Age of Reason. Each volume, however, is a self-contained unit, assuming neither familiarity with the background of our civilization nor a command of the language. To help students acquire a real understanding of how Western culture has evolved, the authors emphasize broad themes without ignoring principal names and dates. Each volume includes an index and a bibliography."
