KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is a solid, readable history of a place and its people of which most Americans today have, at best, a very uneven knowledge. Most of us are familiar enough with the names of Cyrus, Xerxes, Darius; but our view of their careers is Greek-or Hebrew-oriented. This book supplies the internal cultural context without which no real comprehension of their significance is possible.
