From the Banks of the Euphrates: Studies in Honor of Alice Louise Slotsky
Although Near Eastern languages and the history of the exact sciences are known for being obscure and deliberately arcane to general audiences, Alice Slotsky has paradoxically established her legacy by exposing these topics to a wider audience.
