  • 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...

  • Pericles of Athensby Vincent Azoulay; Janet Lloyd; Paul Cartledge

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    Pericles has had the rare distinction of giving his name to an entire period of history, embodying what has often been taken as the golden age of the ancient Greek world. ?Periclean? Athens witnessed tumultuous political and military events, and achievements of the highest order in philosophy, drama, poetry, oratory, and architecture. Pericles of... more...

  • Late Classical and Early Hellenistic Corinthby Michael D. Dixon

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    Late Classical and Early Hellenistic Corinth, 338-196 B.C. challenges the perception that the Macedonians' advent and continued presence in Corinth amounted to a loss of significance and autonomy. Immediately after Chaironeia, Philip II and his son Alexander III established close relations with Corinth and certain leading citizens on the basis of... 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...

  • Argos and the Argolid (Routledge Revivals)by Richard A Tomlinson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    Argos and the Argolid , first published in 1972, presents a study of the history and achievements of the Argives, who have hitherto been largely neglected: partly because Classical Argos is overshadowed by the legends of an earlier millennium, and partly because many of her monuments and records have been lost. Richard Tomlinson describes the region,... more...

  • A History of Earliest Italy (Routledge Revivals)by Missimo Pallottino

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    In A History of Earliest Italy , first published in 1984, Professor Pallottino illumines the wide variety of peoples, languages, and traditions of culture and trade that constituted the pre-Roman Italic world. Since the written sources are fragmentary, archaeology provides the central reservoir for evidence of the societies and institutions of... more...

  • Intellectuals in Politics in the Greek World (Routledge Revivals)by Frank Vatai

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Intellectuals in Politics in the Greek World , first published in 1984, was the first comprehensive study of this recurrent theme in political sociology with specific reference to antiquity, and led to significant revaluation of the role of intellectuals in everyday political life. The term ?intellectual? is carefully defined, and figures as... 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...

  • Athens after the Peloponnesian War (Routledge Revivals)by Barry Strauss

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Historians are used to studying the origins of war. The rebuilding in the aftermath of war is a subject that ? at least in the case of Athens ? has received far less attention. Along with the problems of reconstructing the economy and replenishing the population, the problem of renegotiating political consensus was equally acute. Athens after... more...

  • A Rope of Vinesby Brenda Chamberlain

    Parthian Books 2014; US$ 4.36

    A Rope of Vines, Journal from a Greek Island is a beautiful and personal account of the time spent by Brenda Chamberlain on the Greek Island of Ydra in the early 1960's. Sea and harbour, mountain and monastery, her neighbours and friends are unforgettably pictured; these were the reality outside herself while within there was a conflict of emotion... more...
