«An important new book…Phoenicians and the Making of the Mediterranean offers a powerful call for historians of the ancient Mediterranean to consider their implicit biases in writing ancient history and it provides an example of how more inclusive histories may be written.»

Denise Demetriou, New England Classical Journal

«Ground-breaking…Succeeds in its goal of showcasing the Phoenician imprint on the Mediterranean world and challenging the Hellenocentric model that has dominated scholarship of this region. The author is to be congratulated on her landmark study.»

Ann E. Killebrew, Journal of Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology and Heritage Studies

«For generations, the Phoenicians have been an invisible culture, overwritten by Greek historians. Phoenicians and the Making of the Mediterranean restores their rightful position as the principal engine of the early Iron Age, connecting the eastern Mediterranean to North Africa and Spain. With a light touch and a masterful command of the literature, López-Ruiz replaces old ideas with a subtle and more accurate account of the extensive cross-cultural exchange patterns and economy driven by the Phoenician trade networks that ‘re-wired’ the Mediterranean world. A must read.»

J. G. Manning, author of <i>The Open Sea</i>

«A call to recognize the role of the Phoenicians and acknowledge our own preconceptions and prejudices about ancient history, López-Ruiz’s magnum opus will not only revolutionize our understanding of the Early Iron Age Mediterranean but also how we write the history of this region in the future.»

Denise Demetriou, author of <i>Negotiating Identity in the Ancient Mediterranean</i>

«López-Ruiz weaves together evidence from diverse scholarly fields to spotlight the central role played by Phoenicians in shaping the ancient Mediterranean world. The result is a study as rich as the Phoenicians’ own famed luxury arts.»

Tamar Hodos, author of <i>The Archaeology of the Mediterranean Iron Age</i>

«A masterclass in historiographic and cultural research aiming to upend common stereotypes regarding Phoenicians and their role ‘in the making of the Mediterranean.’ It demonstrates solid, up-to-date research and a thoughtful approach to a variety of topics.»

Vadim Jigoulov, H-Soz-Kult

«A real plea in favor of Phoenician studies, this volume offers an original and welcome contribution to research on the archaic Mediterranean.»

Hédi Dridi, American Journal of Archaeology

«[A] substantial and important contribution…to the ancient history of the Mediterranean. López-Ruiz’s work does justice to the Phoenicians’ role in shaping Mediterranean culture by providing rational and factual argumentation and by setting the record straight.»

Hélène Sader, Bryn Mawr Classical Review

«This is an important and substantial contribution to our understanding of the development of the Mediterranean in a crucial period.»

Hugh Bowden, Middle Ground Journal
