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.Table of ContentsList of MapsPART ONEChapter 1: Judaea under Persian RuleChapter 2: The Beginnings of the Hellenistic Period; Ptolemaic RuleChapter 3: Palestine as Part of the Seleucid KingdomChapter 4: The Formation of the Hasmonaean KingdomChapter 5: The Decline of the Hasmonaean StateChapter 6: Herod and His KingdomChapter 7: The Internal Organization of Herod's KingdomChapter 8: The Division of Herod's KingdomChapter 9: From Vespasian to Diocletian (A.D. 70-284)Chapter 10: From Diocletian to the Arab Conquest (284-640)PART TWOCity TerritoriesPART THREEChapter 1: The Roman Road SystemChapter 2: Economic GeographyChapter 3: PopulationAbbreviationsIndexes
