[SIZE=+1]From the Bryn Mawr Classic Review:[/SIZE]
This new book on “Ancient Phoenicia” joins the growing body of monographs and edited volumes published in recent years on the subject of the Phoenicians, both East and West.1 As part of the “Classical World Series” of the Bristol Classical Press, it is aimed at students and teachers at late school and early university level, as well as the “general reader”, as the author clarifies (p. 8). The book aims to present a “schematic overview of Phoenicia and Phoenician history” between ca. 1300-300 BC.

[SIZE=+1]Additional Description:[/SIZE]
The Phoenicians played a fundamental role in shaping the history of the Mediterranean. Lauded by Homer as unrivalled navigators and traders, they are known to have founded colonies across the length of North Africa and into Southern Spain, yet as a people they have often remained an enigma. This introduction aims to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding this ancient culture. Presenting the latest research and archaeological discoveries, it explores the social, political, economic and ecological changes that occurred in Phoenicia between the Early Bronze Age and the start of the Hellenistic era. Phoenician government and society, agriculture and economy, trade and colonisation, warfare, religion, and art and architecture are all discussed in order to illustrate the character and achievements of this vibrant civilisation, which was able to maintain its unique identity and culture in the face of external threats from states such as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon and Persia.
