Flavius Josephus is best known for his portraits of first-century conditions in Judaea: foreign and native rulers, religious groups and customs, geography, paraphrase of the Bible, apologetics, and the war with Rome. This is the first book to attempt a detailed and nuanced treatment of Josephus' Roman context: the significance of his works for understanding Rome in the late first century, and the significance of that Roman world for understanding Josephus.
