The Jewish Revolt against Rome: Interdisciplinary Perspectives . Edited by Mladen Popović.... This volume contains a collection of papers of which all but one were originally presented at a conference organized by the Qumran Institute of the University of Groningen on 21-22 October 2010. The conference gathered an impressive cast of accomplished modern scholars with wide-ranging expertise, making this volume indispensable as an indicator of the present state of scholarship on the first Jewish revolt and related aspects. As for the subtext, if we take “interdisciplinary perspectives” to mean engagement with varied source types and application of diverse methodologies—as the introductory chapter by M. Popović suggests—then the volume succeeds in both respects. The reader is treated to in-depth analysis of a range of relevant evidence. At the same time, many of the contributors display a conscious concern for historical methodology. Their individual disagreements only add to the value of the whole. The editor himself provides a useful introduction to the volume, particularly in highlighting the nature of the “interdisciplinarity” of the various contributions. This is effectively followed by G. Woolf ’s paper on the “generalised phenomenon of . . . provincial revolts” (27), which takes a broad look at both modern and ancient explanations of such revolts.
