Books By Author Erich S. Gruen

Diasporas and Exiles by Erich S. Gruen Diasporas and Exiles, Hardback (September 2002)

Explores Jewish identity - or, more accurately, Jewish identities - from the mutually illuminating perspectives of anthropology, art history, comparative literature, cultural studies, German history, philosophy, political theory, and sociology.

Heritage and Hellenism by Erich S. Gruen Heritage and Hellenism, Paperback (February 2002)

In this work Erich Gruen draws on a variety of literary and historical texts from antiquity to explore a central question: how did the Jews accommodate themselves to the larger cultural world of the Mediterranean while at the same time reasserting the character of their own heritage within it?

Hellenistic Constructs by Erich S. Gruen Hellenistic Constructs, Hardback (December 1997)

Features twelve essays that emphasize the cultural interaction of Greek and non-Greek societies in the Hellenistic period, in contrast to more conventional focuses on politics, society, or economy. This volume is dedicated to Frank Walbank and includes a bibliography of his work.
