Praise

“Thoroughly convincing … I am a convert.” — William H. McNeill, winner of the National Book Award and author of Plagues and Peoples

“Aubin successfully achieves his primary goal: he provides the most convincing explanation of what caused the Assyrians to retreat from Jerusalem. In the course of doing this, he has unmasked the unconscious racism that has mangled [our] understanding of Egypt for more than a century…. His insights are of astonishing breadth, originality and importance.”
— Bruce G. Trigger, McGill University, author of A History of Archeological Thought

“A special circle in Paradise is reserved for writers such as Henry Aubin: those able to deal with really big ideas or occasions, and to do so convincingly in tight, readable, unpretentious language.” — Donald Akenson, The Globe and Mail

“Aubin writes about complex matters of history, archaeology, and biblical exegesis with a light hand, and his book offers an eminently plausible interpretation of one of history’s great turning points.”– Kirkus Reviews
