Oxford University Press, 2019. — 792 p.The Phoenicians created the Mediterranean world as we know it-yet they remain a shadowy and poorly understood group. The academic study of the Phoenicians has come to an important crossroads; the field has grown in sheer content, sophistication of analysis, and diversity of interpretation, and we now need a current overview of where the study of these ancient seafarers and craftsman stands and where it is going. Moreover, the field of Phoenician studies is particularly fragmented and scattered. While there is growing interest in all things Phoenician and Punic, the latest advances are mostly published in specialized journals and conference volumes in a plethora of languages. This Handbook is the first of its type to appear in over two decades, and the first ever to appear in English. In these chapters, written by a wide range of prominent and promising scholars from across Europe, North America, Australia, and the Mediterranean world, readers will find summary studies on key historical moments (such as the history of Carthage), areas of culture (organized around language, religion, and material culture), regional studies and areas of contact (spanning from the Levant and the Aegean to Iberia and North Africa), and the reception of the Phoenicians as an idea, entangled with the formation of other cultural identities, both ancient and modern.Carolina López-Ruiz is a Professor of Classics at The Ohio State University. She studies the interaction between Greek and Near Eastern cultures, with a focus on the Phoenicians and North-West Semitic cultures. Her books include Tartessos and the Phoenicians in Iberia (Oxford University Press, 2016, with S. Celestino), Gods, Heroes and Monsters: A Sourcebook of Greek, Roman, and Near Eastern Myths in Translation (second edition, 2018, 1st ed. 2014), When the Gods Were Born: Greek Cosmogonies and the Near East (Harvard University Press, 2010; published in Turkish 2012), and Colonial Encounters in Ancient Iberia: Phoenician, Greek, and Indigenous Relations (University of Chicago Press, 2009, co-editor with M. Dietler). She is preparing monographs on the Phoenicians and cultural contact in the orientalizing Mediterranean.Brian R. Doak (PhD Harvard University) is Associate Professor of Biblical Studies and Faculty Fellow in the William Penn Honors Program at George Fox University, just outside of Portland, Oregon. He is the recipient of the Aviram Prize for archaeological research (2012) as well as the George Fox University Undergraduate Researcher of the Year (2014).
