The ancient Phoenician civilization is still shrouded in mystery. Scholars question when the Phoenicians became powerful, where they came from, and how they came to be such brilliant navigators and merchants that they colonized much of the Mediterranean rim. This detailed study of the Phoenicians is filled with important essays and illustrations that trace the rise and fall, the art and customs, the trade and exploration, and the rich legacy of this fascinating culture.

From Library Journal:

Under Sabatino Moscati's direction a distinguished group of scholars has provided a definitive four-part study of the Phoenicians: part 1 treats their history, military and political organization, commerce and industry, alphabet, and religion; part 2 is on the great areas of their expansion, e.g., North Africa and Spain; part 3 focuses on Phoenician art, e.g., jewelry, pottery, and coins; part 4 details the Phoenicians contacts with Etruscans, Egyptians, and others. Many translators, museologists, and other specialists have contributed to this extraordinary volume, which also contains a catalog of the special Phoenician exhibit in Venice's Palazzo Grassi museum. There are more than 1500 illustrations, many in color. Here for the first time Phoenician civilization can be understood in its entirety.
