Lower price on Cogan's Raging Torrent

I just received an e-mail today from Carta telling me that they have reduced the price of The Raging Torrent. If you recall, they had listened to your feedback earlier and reduced the price. Now they have reduced it further to $64.00.

It is in press and should be in the United States sometime in late March.

For those of you who don't remember, here are all the details about this important book:

The Raging Torrent
Historical Inscriptions from Assyria and Babylonia Relating to Ancient Israel
Carta Handbook
by Mordechai Cogan
Carta, Jerusalem, Forthcoming, winter 2007
ca. 224 pages + illustrations, English
Cloth, 6 x 9.25 inches
ISBN: 9652207071
Your Price: $64.00

This volume presents a comprehensive collection of the royal inscriptions from Assyria and Babylonia that treat the Land of Israel and the People of Israel. Covering a period of just over three hundred years during the first half of the 1st millennium BCE, these texts tell the story of the military encounters - both victories and defeats - between the Mesopotamian empires and the kingdoms of Israel and Judah. Many of the texts relate to events described in the Hebrew Bible, while others provide information about affairs that were unknown until their discovery in the modern times. All the texts have been newly translated from the original cuneiform documents and are accompanied by a consecutive commentary and select bibliography.
