About-

In the seven years since it was published, "Miller's yeoman narrative" (Ryan Byrne, BASOR) has become an important part of academic discourse on early Israel.

An illuminating social history of ancient Israel, Chieftains of the Highland Clans offers an unusually thorough and original reconstruction of Israelite society prior to the rise of the monarchy around 1000 BC. Using the latest archaeological research and anthropological theories, Robert Miller presents an intriguing picture of what life was like in early Israel.

This reprint edition contains a new preface by the author that surveys developments in the past decade impacting issues addressed in Chieftains of the Highland Clans.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Miller's study is a valuable contribution to our understanding of the demographic and political processes in the highlands of Palestine--in some way he has structured a much more diffuse discussion about these processes in previous study."
--Niels Peter Lemche, Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament

"Miller is to be commended for a fresh multidisciplinary approach to the study of the Israelite settlement and state development."
--Steven M. Ortiz, Near East Archaeology Society Bulletin

"No longer will the period of Israelite beginnings be considered a dark age. With meticulous and brilliant attention to method, Robert Miller uses the materials from a stunning array of archaeological excavations and surveys along with anthropological models to illustrate the highland settlements of the Iron I period. This pioneering study at last tells us what early Israel was really like."
--Carol Meyers, Duke Univeristy
