Imperialism and Biblical Prophecy is a radically new interpretation of prophetic poetry. Using more than thirty new translations from the Hebrew Bible, it shows that this poetry is inseparable from imperialism, that each of the three major waves of biblical prophecy which have survived in the Old Testament occurred in response to simultaneous waves of imperialist conquest.

David Aberbach is Associate Professor of Hebrew and Comparative Literature at McGill University.Review:
This book's strength is in its fresh translation and arrangement of poetry with historical commentary. The translations are easy to read and even make occasional use of the spatial conventions of modern poetry..
