Sacred Geography:   A Tale of Murder and Archaeology in the Holy Land , Fox, Edward
7 Fox, Edward Sacred Geography: A Tale of Murder and Archaeology in the Holy Land
Metropolitan Books 2001 0805054936 / 9780805054934 1st Edition; 1st Printing Hardcover VG+/VG+; Like new  

A true murder mystery that unfolds in the astonishing world of biblical archaeology, a field rife with skulduggery and intrigue.

Biblical archaeology has for centuries been subject to the manipulations of adventurers, generals, and statesmen, all seeking to further their own aims. Now more than ever, digging into the land of the Bible is a weapon as two rival nations seek to prove their claims to its treasures.

The most recent casualty in this bloody tug-of-war is Albert Glock, a prominent American archaeologist, shot dead in the West Bank in 1992, who had devoted his life to helping Palestinian archaeologists find evidence of their historic roots. Edward Fox investigates the puzzle of Glock's murder and its background in the explosive cultural politics of archaeology in the Holy Land. Fox reveals the strange subdiscipline of biblical archaeology -- a field rich in obscure mystics, greedy opportunists, and religious charlatans. He pursues the various suspects in Glock's death -- Islamic zealots, Jewish extremists, and rival archaeologists -- only to find himself caught in an expanding labyrinth of deceit. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 254 pp
