This study of Egyptian-Canaanite interaction contributes to a growing interest in examining the role of social interaction between core civilizations and their less developed peripheries. With contributions from some of the most eminent academics in the field, it tests a wide range of interaction models including the World Systems Theory and Peer Polity Interaction, and approaches the subject from a variety of angles: examining environmental and biological contexts in which social interaction operated at this time, the importance of the Chalcolithic period in both countries and the origin of the metals trade, providing new and controversial data that reassess some of the most important recent discoveries. The collection makes use of new developments in analytical methods such as archaeometallurgy and ceramic petrography and epigraphic data.
