This book offers a Persian perspective even when relying on Greek textual sources and archaeological evidence.

Greek Perspectives of the Achaemenid Empire: Greek Perspectives on the Achaemenid Empire: Persia Through the Looking Glass


by: Janett Morgan
"The Greek's view of Persia and the Persians changed radically throughout the archaic and classical period as the Persians turned from noble warriors to peacock-loving cross-dressers. This book traces the development of a range of responses to the Achaemenids and their empire through a study of ancient texts and material evidence from the archaic and classical periods. Janett Morgan investigates the historical, political and social factors that inspired and manipulated different identities for Persia and the Persians within Greece.

Ezra and the Law in History and Tradition


by: Lisbeth S. Fried
The historical Ezra was sent to Jerusalem as an emissary of the Persian monarch. What was his task? According to the Bible, the Persian king sent Ezra to bring the Torah, the five books of the Laws of Moses, to the Jews. Modern scholars have claimed not only that Ezra brought the Torah to Jerusalem, but that he actually wrote it, and in so doing Ezra created Judaism. Without Ezra, they say, Judaism would not exist.




In Ezra and the Law in History and Tradition, Lisbeth S. Fried separates historical fact from biblical legend.

The Arabian Gulf in Antiquity: Volume I: From Prehistory to the Fall of the Achaemenid Empire


by: D. T. Potts
The Arabian Gulf has become in recent years one of the most promising new areas of research in ancient near-eastern archaeology. Until now, however, no attempt has been made to synthesize the archaeology and history of this region from the beginnings of human settlement to the rise of Islam. This magisterial two-volume work draws on a wide array of archaeological, epigraphic, and literary sources to present the first comprehensive study of the area. Volume I covers the Pleistocene to the Achaemenian period, including almost all the published evidence for the prehistory and history of the Arabian Gulf.
