"This volume presents the literary production of Judaism in the period of the Second Temple, with the exclusion of the Bible on one hand, and rabbinic literature on the other. In the text, the emphasis has been on producing a readable, balanced exposition which avoids the use of technical jargon, of untranslated ancient languages and of unnecessarily detailed catalogues of scholarly views and disputes. The aim is to produce a text which is available to the non-specialist, yet not tautological to the scholar." - p. XIX.
