Who Are The "Canaanites"? Why Ask?

Issue: 2011, Volume 44, Issue 5
Subject: Archaeology|History
Author: Ra'ad, Basem L.
Issue Description: Just prior to the publication of this Link, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich commented that Palestinians are an “invented people.”  Good timing, in a way, because the intent of this article is to refute such crass ignorance and/or intentional disinformation.  The author, Basem Ra’ad, teaches at Al-Quds University in Jerusalem.  His article is based on his book “Hidden Histories: Palestine and the Eastern Mediterranean,” which is reviewed on page 14 of this issue and available for purchase through AMEU.  In the first four months since the issue appeared, we restocked the book five times to keep up with the orders--none, unfortunately enough, from the former House Speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate.
