"This volume is an ambitious cross-cultural perspective of the ancient empires in a series of case studies based on political theory as well as on recent archeological research." --Journal of World History "This book justly claims as a distinctive feature that it brings Greco-Roman empires together with Near Eastern ones in a comparative perspective.... Its parts are varied and interesting, the unexceeded sum makes an absorbing volume." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review
