Hellenism and the Local Communities of the Eastern Mediterranean

400 BCE-250 CE

Edited by Boris Chrubasik and Daniel King

  • Re-introduces Greek culture as an important element in the study of the region and period in question, offering a new perspective on the relationship between Greek and non-Greek communities

  • Utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach, bringing together cutting edge contributions from political and cultural historians, Hellenists, Assyriologists, and papyrologists
