This book emerged from a December 2009 conference organized by the Centre de Recherche Français à Jérusalem, the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute, and the Yad Izhak Ben Zvi Institute for Research on the Land of Israel. The book analyzes major Jewish thinkers grappling with the biblical accounts of the gift of the land of Israel and the fate of its putative original inhabitants, the Canaanites. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
