Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book quite a bit, even though it was required reading for a college course.

Schafer is the preeminent historian on this period of time. This book is easy-to-read, but probably oriented more towards the Jewish studies and Greco-Roman era historian.

As a requirement for a class, my professor obviously knew what was good writing. I recommend highly.

5 of 5 Amazon stars.
