"In The Price of Monotheism, Assmann answers his critics and thoroughly treats topics only alluded to in Moses the Egyptian, setting new intellectual standards for the study of religions of the ancient world and their contemporary sequels. His book should launch a sorely needed reflection on our relationship to our own religious, cultural, and spiritual inheritance." Guy Stroumsa, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem
"The author makes a tightly reasoned argument.... Recommended."L. A. Sinclair, Choice
