This long-awaited reprint of Avi-Yonah's landmark work covers a period of historical geography in the land of Israel that has seen little additional comparable research. Spanning the Exilic, Intertestamental, New Testament, and later Roman periods, this volume is invaluable for Old Testament, Early Judaism, New Testament, and Talmudic studies. Professor Anson Rainey adds a useful toponymic index as well as text revisions. A new foreword is presented by Yoram Tsafrir, director of the Jewish National and University Library.
