"My Brother Esau Is a Hairy Man"

Hair and Identity in Ancient Israel

Susan Niditch

In this book, Susan Niditch seeks a deeper understanding of Israelite culture as expressed, shaped, and reinforced in images of hair — a complex symbol drawn from the body. In addition to the biblical texts, Niditch looks at pictorial representations of hair and other material evidence.
