"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. Myers. "Godbey is fascinating. He is well worth reading - for his consummate passion for detail, for his marvelously intricate tapestry of scholarship in an area where so much is tricky territory. He tells us a great deal about the horizontal development of Judaism..." - Morris Epstein. "Allen Howard Godbey (1864-1948) of Missouri was a Methodist minister, Methodist historian, and teacher, writer, and scholar in the field of the Old Testament, Hebrew history, archeology, and Semitics. He was a professor at Duke University, 1926-1932." - SNAC. Reprint of the 1930 Duke University Press first edition with added Prolegomenon by Professor Morris Epstein.
