  • Athen und Spartaby Raimund Schulz

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2012; US$ 16.78

    Die Spannungen zwischen Athen und Sparta, den beiden Großmächten Griechenlands im 5. und 4. Jahrhundert v. Chr., führten schließlich zum Peloponnesischen Krieg (431-404), einem Wendepunkt der griechischen Geschichte. Raimund Schulz erläutert zunächst die außenpolitischen Voraussetzungen, die Athen die Herrschaft über das Meer einbrachten. Er beleuchtet... more...

  • The Hellenistic Age from the Battle of Ipsos to the Death of Kleopatra VIIby Stanley M. Burstein

    Cambridge University Press 1985; US$ 37.00

    Greek and Roman history has largely been reconstructed from the works of Herodotus, Thucydides, Livy, Tacitus, and other major authors who are today well represented in English translations. But much equally valuable documentary material is buried in inscriptions and papyri and in the works of Greek and Roman grammarians and scholars, and less well... more...

  • The Peloponnesian Warby Thucydides; Steven Lattimore

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 1998; US$ 15.95

    The first unabridged translation into American English, and the first to take into account the wealth of Thucydidean scholarship of the last half of the twentieth century, Steven Lattimore's translation sets a new standard for accuracy and reliability. more...

  • From Mycenae to Homerby T. B. L. Webster

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    This book, first published in 1958, aims to describe Greek art and poetry within this ambiguous period of ancient history (often referred to as the Greek ?Dark Ages?), and to explore the possibilities of learning about Mycenaean civilisation from its own documents and not only from archaeology. Specifically, Webster utilises Michael Ventris? decipherment... more...

  • Phocion the Good (Routledge Revivals)by Lawrence A. Tritle

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 51.95

    Plutarch?s Life of Phocion has not been closely analysed since 1840. Laurence Trittle?s study, first published in 1988, offers a new assessment of this significant and complex personality, whilst illuminating the political climate in which he thrived. Though often thought to be of humble origin, Phocion was educated in Plato?s Academy, rose to... more...

  • Violence, Civil Strife and Revolution in the Classical City (Routledge Revivals)by Andrew Lintott

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    Violent conflict between individuals and groups was as common in the ancient world as it has been in more recent history. Detested in theory, it nevertheless became as frequent as war between sovereign states. The importance of such ? stasis ? was recognised by political thinkers of the time, especially Thucydides and Aristotle, both of whom tried... more...

  • Wandering Greeksby Robert Garland

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    Most classical authors and modern historians depict the ancient Greek world as essentially stable and even static, once the so-called colonization movement came to an end. But Robert Garland argues that the Greeks were highly mobile, that their movement was essential to the survival, success, and sheer sustainability of their society, and that this... more...

  • Etetaby Kevin Glowacki; Natalia Vogeikoff-Brogan

    The American School of Classical Studies at Athens 2011; US$ 37.50

    This volume presents the papers of an international colloquium on the archaeology of houses and households in ancient Crete held in Ierapetra in May 2005. The 38 papers presented here range from a discussion of household activities at Final Neolithic Phaistos to the domestic correlates of “globalization” during the early Roman Empire. These... more...

  • The Early Bronze Age Village on Tsoungiza Hillby Daniel Pullen

    The American School of Classical Studies at Athens 2011; US$ 75.00

    While "corridor houses" such as the House of the Tiles at Lerna have provoked widespread discussion about the origins of social stratification in Greece, few settlements of the Early Bronze Age (ca. 3100 to 2000 B.C.) have been thoroughly excavated. This important study integrates the presentation and analysis of the archaeological evidence... more...

  • Mochlos IBby Kellee A. Barnard; Thomas M. Brogan

    INSTAP Academic Press 2003; US$ 40.00

    Mochlos is a Minoan town set on a fine harbour at the eastern side of the Gulf of Mirabello, in northeast Crete. It was first inhabited during the Neolithic period, and it had an important Minoan settlement during most of the Bronze Age. Mochlos I , to be published in three volumes, presents the results of the excavations in the Neopalatial levels... more...
