Reviews

"Boer's growing corpus of critical work has not received nearly the attention that it merits. With this book Boer establishes himself as a front-line critical scholar whose work will be an inescapable reference point for future work. This courageous book is nothing short of a tour de force in which Boer probes the economic organization, structure, practice, and resources of the Near East and ancient Israel as a sub-set of that culture. His study is organized around `regimes' of allocation that distribute resources and of extraction that plunder resources according to the deployment of socio-political power. The discussion maintains a continuing dialectic of `subsistence' and `surplus' that kept economic practice endlessly open and unstable. It is impossible to overstate the importance of this book and the sheer erudition that has made it possible. Boer's patient attention to detail, his mastery of a huge critical literature, and the daring of his interpretive capacity combine to make this book a `must' for any who want to probe the economic sub-structure of biblical faith and the culture that was its environment." - Walter Brueggemann
