Review of Ancient Near Eastern Art in Context

Aren Maeir has published a review of Ancient Near Eastern Art in Context in the Review of Biblical Literature. As is often the case in reviewing essay collections, much of the article summarizes the contents of the book but Maeir is generally positive. This is the final paragraph:
All told, the varied, provocative, and generally holistic studies that appear in this volume are an extremely fitting tribute to one of the most prominent and well-rounded scholars of the ancient Near East in recent times. The fact that these studies are products of her students, using a worldview clearly borrowed from their teacher, is perhaps the most lasting feature of this tribute!
