About the Book

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.

Reviews

`Rarely does a book on Prophecy succeed in giving insights with concision and style, as does this slim volume.' - Jrnl of Semantic Studies.
