The World of the Neo-Hittite Kingdoms
Trevor Bryce, Oxford University Press, 2012
In the early 12th century, the Hittite empire collapsed during a series of upheavals which swept the Greek and Near Eastern worlds. In the subsequent Iron Age, numerous cities and states emerged in southeastern Anatolia and northern Syria. They are now generally called the ‘Neo-Hittite kingdoms’. How and when did they develop? Why are they called ‘Neo-Hittite’? What if any were their links with the Hittites of the collapsed empire, and with the biblical Hittites? What contacts did they have with the other states and kingdoms of the age, notably the Aramaean states and the Neo-Assyrian empire? These questions will provide starting-points for our investigation of the world of the Neo-Hittite kingdoms. They will take us well beyond the Neo-Hittites themselves to the broader Near Eastern world and the states which dominated it during the Iron Age.
The book can be ordered directly from Oxford University Press.
Arab Christianity in Jerusalem
by Dr Raouf Abujaber, published by Gilgamesh Publishing
The history of the religious communities in Jerusalem is a long and tumultuous tale. Arab Christianity in Jerusalem is a vital record of that tumult, and a crucial document in resisting further turmoil ahead – a personal yet highly scholarly record.

“Dr Abujaber’s command of sources ranges from oral anecdotes of kinsmen…and even to excerpts he has chosen from (once unified) Jerusalem’s Telephone Directories which directly attest to the occupational diversity and urban spread of Christian families throughout the space of today’s tragically segmented Holy City.”
