Essays on Ancient Israel in Its Near Eastern Context: A Tribute to Nadav Naʼaman
With this volume, Professor Na'aman's students and colleagues honor "one of the greatest historians of our time in the study of the biblical period" (from the Preface). Nadav Na'aman is Professor of Jewish History in the Biblical Period at Tel Aviv University (and has held the Kaplan Chair for the History of Egypt and Israel in Ancient Times since 2005). Over the past three decades, he has established a reputation for innovative and careful research in hundreds of memorable articles and monographs, many appearing in a recent three-volume set of his collected essays published by Eisenbrauns (Ancient Israel and Its Neighbors ; Canaan in the Second Millennium B.C.E. ; Ancient Israel's History and Historiography ).
Reflecting the breadth and interconnectedness of Professor Na'aman's research areas, this volume contains contributions on archaeology, ancient Near East (other than ancient Israel), Israel's ancient history and historiography, and biblical studies. Contributors include: Yairah Amit, Moshe Anbar, Hans M. Barstad, Bob Becking, Amnon Ben-Tor, Ehud Ben Zvi, J. Blenkinsopp, Yoram Cohen and Itamar Singer, Philip R. Davies, Diana Edelman, I. Eph'al and H. Tadmor, Israel Finkelstein, Lester L. Grabbe, Sara Japhet, Gary N. Knoppers, Oded Lipschits, Amihai Mazar, Tryggve N. D. Mettinger, Tallay Ornan, Ronny Reich and Benjamin Sass, Miriam Tadmor, David Ussishkin, John Van Seters, H. G. M. Williamson, and Ran Zadok.
