Jacob Neusner describes the lives of the Jewish people in Babylon from the end of the fourth century AD until the demise of the Sasanian dynasty in the seventh century. Focusing on the cultural and sociological aspects of Jewish life during this time, he highlights how political events with the rulers of the Sasanian dynasty affected Jewish customs and traditions such as food laws, sexual taboos and circumcision, and mourning rites.
