Between Past and Present

Neil Asher Silberman, Author Anchor Books $10.95 (285p) ISBN 978-0-385-41610-8
Eyeballing the ruins of Masada and Troy and puzzling over the identity of the Hyksos invaders of ancient Egypt, archeologist Silberman explores how interpretations of archeological discoveries are often shaped by nationalistic feelings, and political and ethnic rivalries. ``Written with modesty and charm, this is an outspoken analysis of the politicization of archeology,'' judged PW.
