Review of Quinn, In Search of the Phoenicians

PHOENICIAN WATCH: Book Review: ‘In Search of the Phoenicians’ — Josephine Quinn (LISA KAAKI, Arab News).
In this provocative, brilliant and original book, Josephine Quinn not only sheds new light on the ancient civilization of Phoenicia but actually questions its very existence. Quinn argues that while the Phoenicians as a people certainly existed, as did the Phoenician language, there is no historical evidence that they ever constituted an ethnic group or nation or that they ever claimed to.
