"[An] illuminating and comprehensive book. . . . The difficult questions of Jewish marriage today, such as a concern over Jews marrying non-Jews and the changing definitions of who constitutes a married couple, may not actually have many new elements. Judaism of the past and present has always been in conversation with its host society about such fluid matters."--Tawny L. Holm, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
From the Inside Flap
"Jewish Marriage in Antiquity is the most exhaustive and incisive of studies of this important topic to date and will define the problematics of ancient Jewish marriage for the foreseeable future. Its eclectic methodology and comparative perspectives will attract readers from a variety of disciplines. Classicists, historians of religion, and scholars interested generally in the institution of marriage and in attendant constructions of gender and sexuality will find valuable insights in this book."--Steven D. Fraade, Yale University
"A superb book, one that offers a truly sophisticated and rich social history of Classical Judaism. Michael Satlow looks at the institution of marriage from virtually every angle, and combines a good deal of common sense as well as historical imagination in order to build a compelling, detailed interpretation of his evidence."--David Stern, University of Pennsylvania
