Ancient Near Eastern studies book reviews

By Mary Fisk|February 16, 2015|Ancient Near East, Semitics and Judaica|0 comments

Two recent acquisitions by SOAS Library on ancient Near Eastern studies and comparative ancient Near Eastern literatures  have been reviewed in the Society of Biblical Literature’s Review of Biblical Literature 


  • All the boundaries of the land : the Promised Land in Biblical thought in light of the ancient Near East / Nili Wazana. (Eisenbrauns, 2013) – reviewed by Esias Meyer of the University of Pretoria, South Africa – although the book “did not attempt to engage with contemporary debates about land ownership in the modern state of Israel” it presents a thorough discussion of the concept of the promised land as a literary device in ancient writings
  • All the boundaries of the land is available to SOAS staff and students as an e-book on the Ebrary platform
