Habicht (emeritus history, Institute for Advanced Studies, Princeton, New Jersey) presents 18 essays he wrote between 1956 and 1996, leaving out several encyclopedic articles and two others that are widely anthologized elsewhere. His topics include the wars between Pergamon and Bithynia, literary and epigraphic evidence for the history of Alexander and his first successors, Hellenism and Judaism in the age of Judas Maccabeus, and divine honors for king Antigonus Gonatas in Athens. Essays not originally written in English are translated from German by Irish-born British scholar of modern history and language Peregrine Stevenson.
