The revolts of the slaves trapped in the Roman Empire have been a fertile ground for leftish writers. Howard Fast's take on the last big save revolt, is competent, but I prefer the version by Alfred Duggan, or the rather sentimental film script by Dalton Trumbo.

Good book but ended on a surprisingly downbeat feel. Actually, the whole thing was pretty downbeat, which isn't a huge surprise given the content, but usually these books pull it back up into happy land for the ending. I think I respect the writer more for keeping it like this.

Este es un magnifico canto a la libertad del pueblo judio, protagonizado por los hijos de matatias, adon del pueblo de Modin. Los cinco 'gloriosos hermanos' encabezan la rebelion contra las tropas sirio-griegas a las ordenes de Antioco IV (175-164 a.e, un monarca que pretendia gobernar Judea segun los esquemas helenisticos, y que habia abolido la tradicional teocracia que permitia a los judios gozar de una relativa autonomia. Una lucha larga y dura que pondra a prueba la unidad de todo un pueblo, y que por primera vez en su larga historia estara a punto de provocar la desaparicion del judaismo.El gran merito de esta obra reside en su autenticidad. Sin pretensiones maniqueas y con una honestidad a toda prueba, Fast plantea la busqueda de la libertad como una necesidad vital para la supervivencia de los oprimidos, y analiza minuciosamente las campanas militares, los conflictos personales y politicos de los lideres, la asimilacion del helenismo por parte de los judios ricos de Jerusalen, y el excepcional drama que surge del enfrentamiento entre dos modos tan dispares de entender el mundo, la sociedad y la religion.… (lisätietoja)
