New Book: From the Ptolemies to the Romans


Cambridge University Press has just published From the Ptolemies to the Romans: Political and economic change in Egypt, by Andrew Monson, Assistant Professor of Classics at NYU and an affiliated faculty member at ISAW.

In this book, Monson looks at the impact of the coming of Roman rule to Egypt, using theoretical perspectives from the social sciences as well as a reexamination of the extensive papyrological evidence to argue for a primary importance for fiscal reform as an agent of change.
