    The book covers 13 different people groups in as many chapters: Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Persians, Hittites, Canaanites & Amorites, Phoenicians, Arameans, Philistines, Egyptians, Ammonites, Moabites, Edomites. Most of the chapters are 25-30 pages in length. Each chapter is written by a different scholar and the quality of content and writing varies from one to the other. Younkers chapter on the Ammonites stood out as a particularly outstanding piece of writing. I also enjoyed reading the first four chapters (Sumerians, Babylonians, Assyrians, Persians) all together because the material overlapped occasionally and this helped to reinforce the information in my mind. Some authors evidently feel no commitment to biblical inerrancy (e.g. Pritard on the Arameans) and others defense of biblical inerrancy seems strained and unpersuasive (notably Howard on the Philistines). Most of the writers I recognized as more conservative in their approach to biblical historicity: B. Arnold, Yamauchi, Hoffmeier, Mattingly. Overall, an excellent place to begin studying the other nations which Israel encountered in her history. The number one weakness of this book, and it is a significant weakness, is the lack of maps. Authors mention cities in relation to other cities, mountains and plains, rivers, and so forth, and the reader has no place to turn to make sense of the geographical descriptions.
