This volume, containing selections from his autobiography, from Against Apion, The Antiquities of the Jews, and the Jewish War, reveals Josephus as a lively historian, an artist at survival, and a fascinating, quarrelsome, self- righteous, vainglorious character who observed his society with a certain seriousness, a very sharp eye for telling detail, and an astute sense of humor. His writings illuminate the constitutional, political, religious, educational, and cultural history of the Jewish people in his time and also fully express his attitude toward events and situations both at home in Palestine and in the wider context of the Roman World.
