The great revolt by the Jews against the occupying Roman power in the first century AD ended in bloody defeat. Neil Faulkner provides a blow-by-blow account of this long and bitter struggle, together with a shrewd analysis of the underlying issues. The author synthesises the evidence of written sources with that of archaeology to produce a narrative account of the revolt with full historical and cultural background. This event was a milestone in Jewish national consciousness.
