      Dear list-members,

      my newest publication is fresh off the presses :

      ARISTARCHUS ANTIBARBARUS. PSEUDOLOGIES MESOPOTAMIENNES,
      BIBLIQUES, CLASSIQUES. Amsterdam, Adolf M. Hakkert, 2012, in-8°, XCII +
      270 pp., 76 euros.

      A study of a dozen or so fallacies in the fields of Classics,
      /Hellenosemitica/, Biblical studies and /Mesopotamica/, it entails
      elaborate refutations of Martin Bernal's /Black Athena Volume 3 : The
      Linguistic Evidence/ ; R. A. J. Gagnon's views on the Leviticus ban on
      same-sex relationships ; S. Jackson's /A Comparison of Ancient Near
      Eastern Law Collections Prior to the First Millenium BC/ (2008) ; A.
      Podany's /Brotherhood of Kings. How International Relations Shaped/ /the
      Ancient Near East /(2007) ; and M. Zehnder's paper on David and Jonathan
      in the /Westminster Theological Journal/ of 2007. Equally of interest to
      list-members may be my analyses of B. Louden, /Homer's Odyssey and the
      Near East/ (2011), and C. Lopez-Ruiz, /When the Gods Were Born. Greek
      Cosmogonis and the Near East/(2010).

      Yours truly,

      J.-F. Nardelli
      Université de Provence.

      « In the first chapter of this book Jean-Fabrice Nardelli analyses in
      careful detail the fanciful new etymologies proposed by Martin Bernal
      in/Black Athena vol. III: the Linguistic Evidence/, and demonstrates why
      none of them stands up to informed scrutiny. In the process,
      Nardelli suggests that the actual derivations of many words indicate
      that the Greek language had an interesting and diverse history, with
      closer connection to Anatolian languages than Bernal appears to have
      realized »

      Excuse to Teach Myth as History/ (1997) and /History Lessons : A Race
      Odyssey/ (2009).

      « Un livre passionnant, instruit et informé qui dénonce l'amalgame entre
      des convictions religieuses conservatrices et des analyses de textes
      prétendant à la scientificité. Une enquête nécessaire et salutaire »

      Bible hébraïque à la Faculté de Théologie et des Sciences des religions
