I looked through and have not found many full Ancient Near Eastern or Egyptian history titles.  I would love to get suggestions of books already available, but I thought I would go ahead and add a couple of general volumes that I think would fill a need in Logos.

A History of the Ancient Near East ca. 3000 - 323 BC [Blackwell History of the Ancient World Ser.] by Marc Van De Mieroop  (Oct 6, 2006)

A History of Ancient Egypt by Marc Van De Mieroop  (Aug 30, 2010) [available for Kindle]

I'd be interested in these!

I'd love to see more resources on the ANE as a whole, books that compare between ANE languages, and resources on specific ANE civilizations. We have some on Israel (I'd like to see more), but I'd like to see a few on Egypt, Syria, Assyria, Babylonia, and more. I'd also like more books on Greek Civilization and Roman Civilization, as well as books that discuss how each of these cultures affected Israel, and books that discuss how these cultures have influenced the Church. I would also like to see more books on Archaeology (both Old and New Testament periods).
