Debt-Slavery in Israel and the Ancient Near East (Jsot by Gregory C. Chirichigno

By Gregory C. Chirichigno

First i am surprised that this ebook is so dear. i actually have no idea why. yet as i am engaged on a singular set in historical Israel and that i had to learn about usual slavery and debt-slavery I appeared and sought for details at the topic. As you could recognize there are very, only a few books at the subject, for this by myself i can't provide this publication a low score. it really is stable to work out a few remedy of this subject. there's a lot of data the following.
This e-book reads like a PhD thesis and should were. It has the entire wide notes and references you will look forward to finding in the sort of rfile. when you are no longer ready for studying a seriously specified textual content this is not the textual content for you. but when you're studying it may turn out very valuable.
What i don't like approximately this publication is that, writing from a Christian viewpoint and as a rule referencing Christian works, the author's knowing of a few of the Jewish legislation are misguided. This makes the e-book particularly tense from time to time. There also are few, if any, references to historical files that are much better to depend upon than the present Christian texts which he costs so usually. i feel if he had caught with extra historical texts and records to base his findings on he might have performed a higher job.
Here is the desk of contents because it may also help you opt if this publication covers what you're looking for.
Chapter 1-Introduction
Chapter 2-The Social history of Debt-Slavery in Mesopotamia
Chapter 3-The criminal history of Debt-Slavery in Mesopotamia
Chapter 4-The Social heritage of Debt-Slavery in Israel
Chapter 5-Old testomony legislation facing Chattel- and Debt-Slaves
Chapter 6-The Manumission [releasing of slaves] legislation of Exodus 21.2-6,7-11
Chapter 7-The Manumission legislations of Deuteronomy 15.12-18
Chapter 8-The Manumission legislation of Leviticus 25.39-43,47-55
Chapter 9-Conclusions
In the top i might suggest Mendelsohn's "Slavery within the old close to East" over this one. it's also a lot shorter, however it is very invaluable (as good as attention-grabbing) for those who can search out it. It charges historic records as its basic resource of knowledge.
