East and West: Papers in Ancient History Presented to Glen W. Bowersock

Abstract:

In this volume a distinguished international group of ancient historians explores the classical antiquity that Glen W. Bowersock has given us over a scholarly career of almost fifty years at Harvard and the Institute for Advanced Study, described by Aldo Schiavone in his introduction as "a world of plurality and of the multifarious, of the ethnic and cultural melting pot, the world of Romanized Greekness and Hellenized Romaness, of open, shifting identities, of travels, curiosities and exchanges, of East permeating West and the West understanding the East, of seas that unite much more than they divide, of malleability, pliability, and constant integration."
