Topical index Three foldout maps. Footnotes. Errata slip affixed at xi. "The notion of identifiable 'lost tribes' involves certain presuppositions concerning Hebrew history, and masses of supposed local evidence in many parts of the world. These presuppositions and the assumed evidence require a candid and searching anthropological historical examination. This book has no other purpose or method. But the examination brings to light a great body of the real facts of Hebrew history." - Preface. "The main thrust of Godbey's work is to disprove the assumption that the northern tribes, taken into captivity by Sargon II in 722/1 B.C., were lost in the welter of international movements following that event." - J.M.
