Item Description...
Complex and unstable, in 922 BC the kingdom of Ancient Israel was divided into Judah, in the South, and Israel, in the North. For the next 200 years, there was almost constant warring between these kingdoms and their neighbors. These bitter feuds eventually led to the collapse of Israel, leaving Judah as a surviving nation until the emergence of the Babylonian Empire, the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 BC, and the exile of the Jewish people.

Using ancient Jewish, Biblical, and other contemporary sources, this title examines the politics, fighting, and consequences of Israel's battles during this period. Focusing on the turbulent relationship between the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, this book explains Israel's complex, often bloody, foreign policy, and provides a definitive history of these ancient conflicts.
"... is a fine pick for both in-depth college-level Middle East history holdings and specialty military collections with strong sections in early military force... It promises vivid reading for any studying early wars and military conditions." -The Bookwatch Midwest Book Review

Reviews - What do our customers think?
No fun to read  Aug 9, 2007
Exactly. You may get the same information out of an encyclopedia or the internet without paying a dime and without taking space in your library. I understand perfectly it is a tough topic, ancient history, few sources, the names are hard to pronounce, there are too many characters, etc, etc. Whatever. If you are going to make a book of it you are supposed to be able to tell a story out of it. Anybody can know facts (or make them up), the question is "do you know how to tell them?".

It is specially a pity that one can't make anything out of this book when it's supposed to be a general public's book, a nice edition with graphics, maps, pictures et al as they generally come from this publisher. Yes, that makes it even irritating.

Unless you are a specialist in the subject stay away from this one. The books of Kings are more fun to read than this. Oh, and the excuse that there are not enough physical evidence to give testimony that help should tell you not to write about it, and not the other way around.
 
Vivid reading  May 10, 2007
Brad E. Kelle's ANCIENT ISRAEL AT WAR: 853-586BC is a fine pick for both in-depth college-level Middle East history holdings and specialty military collections with strong sections in early military force. It covers the complex kingdom of Ancient Israel and 200 years of constant warring between kingdoms and neighbors, and considers both the social and political relationships involved and the military conflicts. While a specialty item, it promises vivid reading for any studying early wars and military conditions.
 
Could have been better  May 8, 2007
This was a dissapointing purchase. The author has provided a cursory review of ancient israel history but nothing illuminating to the initiated. More could be found in a wikipedia search and written more consisely. While the series is recommended this unfortunately is one to pass on unless you need to have it as part of a collection
