In this volume in the Library of Ancient Israel, Niels Peter Lemche focuses on the way Israelites understood themselves at different points in history--before, within, and after the monarchy. Lemche discusses references to the people and their leaders in other ancient Near Eastern texts and examines the Israelites self-understanding or behavior as a distinct people throughout their history.ContentsForewordPrefaceProlegomena: Inventing the Past.
