For more than 100 years, Schurer's critical presentation of the whole evidence concerning Jewish history, institutions, and literature from 175 B.C. to A.D. 135 has been invaluable. This edition by Geza Vermes, Fergus Millar, Martin Goodman, and Matthew Black offers a fresh English text and a full revision. Much new archaeological, epigraphical, numismatic, and literary evidence is included, and the bibliographies are updated. Volume 1.
