From the back cover:
"After an overview of social analysis and of the ancient Mediterranean worldview, the core of the book systematically presents major domains and institutions of family, politics, and economy, always with reference to specific biblical and other ancient texts. In a concluding chapter, the authors explore Palestine's religious institutions, especially Herod's Temple system and Jesus' relation to it. The wealth of archaeological date, documentary data, and analysis is enhanced by extensive charts, diagrams, study questions, glossaries and suggested readings."
