Reviews

"Filled with fascinating details; [Masada] is informative and judicious."---Glenn C. Altschuer, Jerusalem Post
"All those interested in [Masada], or planning a visit, will find their understanding enriched by [Magness's] clear and readable guide."---Matti Friedman, Mosaic
"[Jodi Magness is] fascinating on the conflation of archaeology and nationalism in modern Israel's use of the 'Masada myth'."---Justin Marozzi, The Spectator
"Fascinating. . . . The overall high quality of [
Masada
] and its author's personal acquaintance with both the archaeological and literary source material cannot be questioned."---Daniel Sugarman, Jewish Chronicle
"The appealing narrative launches itself in time-honoured fashion in medias res, with an account of the Roman siege that took place three years after the fall of Jerusalem in AD 70."---Claire Gruzelier, Classics for All Reviews
