      > Fischer, Peter M. (ed.) The Chronology of the Jordan Valley during the
      Middle and Late Bronze Ages: Pella, Tell Abu al-Kharaz and Tell Deir Alla.
      Contributions by S. Bourke et al., P.M. Fischer, G. van der Kooij
      > 261 pp
      >
      > This volume deals with the occupational sequences and the material remains
      of three of the most important settlements in the Central Jordan Valley
      during the Middle and Late Bronze Ages: Pella, Tell Abu al-Kharaz and Tell
      Deir Alla. An alternative approach to the publishing of important
      information is presented: the contributors had the opportunity to discuss
      the editor's conclusions. In the first three chapters, the three sites are
      presented by the excavators. Chapter 4 is a preliminary conclusion in which
      Fischer presents his view. Chapter 5 gives the other two contributors the
      opportunity to respond to Fischer's conclusions. Van der Kooij agrees with
      Fischer's conclusions, whereas Bourke presents additional theories and
      interpretations although agreeing with Fischer on all major issues. In
      Chapter 6, Fischer includes Bourke's response in his résumé, in which all
      the sites are synchronized locally, regionally and interculturally. It is
      obvious that the present volume is of major importance not only for the
      archaeology of the Jordan Valley and the Southern Levant but also for other
      related cultures such as those of Syria/Lebanon, Cyprus, Egypt and the
      Mycenaean sphere because of imports from these regions. Fischer's revised
      terminology and chronology for the sub-division of the Late Bronze Age is
      used by all contributors.
      > The interdisciplinary character of the publication is apparent. The
      integration of modern field archaeology and advanced scientific studies
      contributes to a better understanding of the dynamics of the vibrant
      societies of the Middle and Late Bronze Ages in the Eastern Mediterranean
      and the Near East. The present volume also contributes to the chronological
      discussions of the SCIEM 2000 project, "The Synchronization of Civilizations
      in the Eastern Mediterranean in the Second Millennium B.C."
