About The Beginning of History for Israel

A scholar residing at the Sri Aurobindo Ashram who has written several books on the early history of the Middle East region and of India.

This book examines the early history of the Jews in the light of evidence provided by various written records and archaeological studies, and in its synthesis comes up with a refreshing new look at several key questions concerning this subject. It focuses on the sojourn of the Israelites in Egypt, the connection with Pharaoh Ramses II, the date of and circumstances surrounding the Exodus, the "yam suf" miracle, and moves on to the conquest of Palestine.
