This volume explores the ancient population of the Western Levant, examining the development of its distinctive, yet indigenously based culture - from the rise of urbanization in the late-fourth-millenium BC to the fragmentation of its socio-cultural ideals in the latter half of the first millenium. The author stresses the demographic continuity of Canaanite civilization, allowing the reader to recognize events such as the imposition of Egyptian imperial rule, or the development of historical Israel as episodic interruptions, the impact of which was minimized by a characteristic and enduring assertion of identity. The book also looks at the role of Canaanites within the context of the international trading community of the ancient Mediterranean, highlighting their ancestral relationship to the later Phoenicians.
