The concluding part of John D Grainger's history of the Seleukids traces the tumultuous last century of their empire. In this period it was riven by dynastic disputes, secessions and rebellions, the religiously-inspired insurrection of the Jewish Maccabees, civil war and external invasion from Egypt in the West and the Parthians in the East. By the 80s BC, the empire was disintegrating, internally fractured and squeezed by the converging expansionist powers of Rome and Parthia. This is a fittingly, dramatic and colourful conclusion to John Grainger's masterful account of this once-mighty empire.

About the Author:

John D. Grainger is a former teacher turned professional historian. He has over thirty books to his name, divided between classical history and modern British political and military history. His previous books for Pen & Sword are Hellenistic and Roman Naval Wars; Wars of the Maccabees; Traditional Enemies: Britain’s War with Vichy France 1940-42; Roman Conquests: Egypt and Judaea; Rome, Parthia and India: The Violent Emergence of a New World Order: 150-140 BC; a three-volume history of the Seleukid Empire and British Campaigns in the South Atlantic 1805-1807.

Review:

"To get the best from The Fall Of The Seleukids it would be worthwhile making sure you've absorbed the first two volumes. Nonetheless you can enjoy and learn from this book alone. Like the fall of any other empire or the folly of human behavior - the story is compelling." (UNRV)

AUTHOR: John D Grainger is a former teacher and historian of great experience, with a particular interest in the Classical and Hellenistic Greek periods. SELLING POINTS: Concluding part of John Grainger's unique trilogy narrating the rise and fall of the Seleukid Empire The Seleukid dynasty ruled what was at one time the largest empire on earth, its decline and eventual extinction reshaped the ancient world. After defeat by the Romans at Magnesia, the Seleukid realm was still a major power. John Grainger shows how external threats, rebellious subjects and dynastic disputes combined to undermine and eventually destroy it. This period includes the wars against the rebel Jewish Maccabees whose liberation of the Temple in Jerusalem from Seleukid control is still commemorated by Jews at Hannukah. John Grainger is a highly respected and prolific historian who writes with great authority on this period. 5 b/w maps Concluding part of John Grainger's unique trilogy narrating the rise and fall of the Seleukid Empire.
