Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on October 16, 1996
Format: Hardcover
The development of scientific archeology a century ago and the resulting eager, competitive excavations throughout the Middle East had broad intellectual consequences in the United States. Scholars' preconceptions shaped their choices of sites and their interpretation of finds; what they found challenged and gradually changed their beliefs, and led to "a revolution in the way...Americans comprehended the world."
