  • Classical Greek Oligarchyby Matthew Simonton

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 45.00 US$ 40.95

    Classical Greek Oligarchy thoroughly reassesses an important but neglected form of ancient Greek government, the "rule of the few."

  • Cyprus between Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages (ca. 600–800)by Luca Zavagno

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Research on early medieval Cyprus has focused on the late antique "golden age" (late fourth/early fifth to seventh century) and the so-called Byzantine "Reconquista" (post-AD 965) while overlooking the intervening period. This phase was characterized, supposedly, by the division of the political sovereignty between the Umayyads and the Byzantines,... more...

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 73.99

    For the first time scholars in the study of early Christianity and early Chinese Buddhism put their efforts together and compare what had happened when a new belief entered into an old society: What were the reactions, rejections, adjustments, or adaptations both societies experienced? What can we learn from this comparison? more...

  • Cultural Perceptions of Violence in the Hellenistic Worldby Michael Champion; Lara O'Sullivan

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Violence had long been central to the experience of Hellenistic Greek cities and to their civic discourses. This volume asks how these discourses were shaped and how they functioned within the particular cultural constructs of the Hellenistic world. It was a period in which warfare became more professionalised, and wars increasingly ubiquitous.... more...
