Anyone who teaches or studies Ugaritic will want to take a serious look at adding this book to his or her collection of resources. I had high hopes for this book and I was not disappointed.
. . . I am able to recommend enthusiastically the use of this manual in graduate classrooms and its presence on the shelf of anyone heavily involved in reflection on the alphabetic texts from Ugarit. This is a well-produced volume from beginning to end. The diligent labor of two senior scholars over nearly three decades has produced an extremely useful grammar and chrestomathy of Ugaritic, now available in English at a competitive price.
