This volume contains the proceedings of a seminar which focused on the Hyksos against the background of Middle Bronze Age civilizations, with the primary objective of examining the diverse data, methodologies and interpretations that have emerged from the rather meager textual evidence, and particularly from the results of the extensive archaeological exploration of Egypt, Nubia, Palestine, Syria, Anatolia, Cyprus, and the Aegean.

Informative. It is one of several books that tackled the history of Egypt when Joseph became right hand of the pharaoh.
