World

With admirable erudition, López-Ruiz brings to life intimacies and exchanges between the ancient Greeks and their Northwest Semitic neighbors, portraying the ancient Mediterranean as a fluid, dynamic contact zone. She shows networks of circulation, creative uses of traditional material by peoples in motion, and radically transforms our understanding of ancient cosmogonies.—Page duBois, author of Out of Athens: The New Ancient Greeks
