Publisher's Description

The encounter between Jews and Greeks marked one of the most revolutionary meetings in the ancient world, for in that encounter politics, economics, culture, and religion changed dramatically. Victor Tcherikover, who devoted his entire scholarly life to the study of the Hellenistic period, offers here a benchmark assessment of that encounter. In this reprinted edition of his most famous work, including a new preface by University of Chicago Professor John J. Collins, Tcherikover uniquely combines "analyses of two of the most intriguing episodes of Jewish history in antiquity: the events that led to the Maccabean rebellion and the struggle for rights in Alexandria in the first century CE" (from the preface).

Author Bio

Victor Tcherikover was born in 1894 in St. Petersburg. He fled Russia during the revolution and eventually went to Berlin, where he taught until 1925, when he left for Palestine. He was one of the first teachers at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
