About the Author

Igor P. Lipovsky was born March 7, 1950, in Moscow, in an interfaith Russian-Jewish family. His paternal ancestors were prominent leaders and philanthropists of the Jewish community of Minsk, Belarus, while his mother (née Robinson) descended from the Russian-English family of well-known industrialists and merchants in pre-revolutionary Russia. Igor P. Lipovsky graduated with distinction from Lomonosov Moscow State University’s Institute of Asian and African Studies. He then worked as a researcher and doctoral student at Academy of Sciences, in Moscow. Because of his criticism of the totalitarian and anti-Semitic regime in the Soviet Union, he was forced to leave the country in 1987. He received his Ph.D. degree in Near Eastern History in Israel, in 1989. In 1987-1992 he taught at the Department of Middle Eastern History of Haifa University. After the collapse of the USSR, he was invited as a visiting professor to St. Petersburg University (1993-1995); he then taught in Los Angeles (1995-97) and Boston (from 1998). Igor P. Lipovsky specializes in Near Eastern and Central Asian History. He has published more than a hundred articles in Russian, German, British and American journals and five books in the English and Russian languages. He lives in suburban Boston and is now a United States citizen.

Format: Kindle Edition
Professor Lipsky offer an intriguing and often convincing argument that early Semitic, pre- Jewish tribes joined other groups of Semites, arrived and either thrived in or suffered in Egypt separtely or with other Semitic tribes at different times during a 500 year evolution of unifying culturization. I do think the work suffers from spotty translation andsome awkward sentence structure. These minor but often iirritating short comings not withstanding I thoruoghly enjoyed the book and strongly recommend it to anyone interested in the early development of Western culture and values.

The author presents a clear overview of the historical period in question and then advances, and documents, his main thesis effectively.

I really liked this book and the author's theory on there being 2 groups of semi nomadic western Semites that became the 12 tribes of Israel. His theory makes a lot of sense and helps clear up the history of the early Israelites. Also, his theory about there being two exoduses, and the times when they happened is interesting. I think all others who study about ancient Israel should read this book. This book is awesome.
