520    "The empires of the ancient Near East and Mediterranean 
       invented cosmopolitan politics. In the first millennia BCE
       and CE, a succession of territorially extensive states 
       incorporated populations of unprecedented cultural 
       diversity. Cosmopolitanism and Empire traces the 
       development of cultural techniques through which empires 
       managed difference in order to establish effective, 
       enduring regimes of domination. It focuses on the 
       relations of imperial elites with culturally distinct 
       local elites, offering a comparative perspective on the 
       varying depth and modalities of elite integration in five 
       empires of the ancient Near East and Mediterranean. If 
       cosmopolitanism has normally been studied apart from the 
       imperial context, the essays gathered here show that 
       theories and practices that enabled ruling elites to 
       transcend cultural particularities were indispensable for 
       the establishment and maintenance of trans-regional and 
       trans-cultural political orders. As the first 
       cosmopolitans, imperial elites regarded ruling over 
       culturally disparate populations as their vocation, and 
       their capacity to establish normative frameworks across 
       cultural boundaries played a vital role in the 
       consolidation of their power. Together with an 
       introductory chapter which offers a theory and history of 
       the relationship between empire and cosmopolitanism, the 
       volume includes case studies of Assyrian, Seleukid, 
       Ptolemaic, Roman, and Iranian empires that analyze 
       encounters between ruling classes and their subordinates 
       in the domains of language and literature, religion, and 
       the social imaginary. The contributions combine to 
       illustrate the dilemmas of difference that imperial elites
       confronted as well as their strategies for resolving the 
       cultural contradictions that their regimes precipitated."-
