"This study will have lasting value for not only its conclusions but also the model of interdisciplinary study that it provides. It is of major importance both for its conclusions and for its model of interdisciplinary methodology. The book is well written and will stimulate thinking about the subject at hand. It is both instructive and persuasive. Undoubtedly, it will spark further research into the social world of the family in ancient Israel and the economics of marriage, as well as a better understanding of the correlation between bridewealth and dowry societies and incidences of monogamy, polygyny, and women's social status. -- Biblical Interpretation Naomi Steinberg, DePaul University
