He’s on the Federalist’s Most Notable Books list. The op-ed person writes
There were three older books I reread this year that became relevant again: One, A History of the Jews by Paul Johnson. If you need comprehensive but readable history—from an admittedly philosemitic perspective—you can’t do better. Two, How Star Wars Conquered the Universe: The Past, Present, and Future of a Multibillion Dollar Franchise—because, obviously. Finally, 1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed, by Eric Cline. A superb history of the mysterious Sea Peoples who invaded Egypt and transformed the ancient world.
It’s one of those wretched ‘best of’ lists to be sure. But since Eric’s book really is good, it deserves the mention. There, and here.
