Ancient Greece: A Political, Social, and Cultural History

By Pomeroy, Sarah B.;Burstein, Stanley M.;Donlan, Walter;Roberts, Jennifer Tolbert;Burstein, Stanley Mayer

Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1999. "Four well-known classicists have taken the traditional chronology of Greek history texts and written a much-needed overview for modern students. By means of a chapter structure that is well designed and logical, they take us through each period of Greek history ... Each chapter begins with a discussion of the sources for that period and includes annotated endnotes that deal extensively with recent scholarship. Unlike many other histories, the book goes into depth on the Hellenistic period, as well as the Bronze and Dark Ages. Although the Spartans and Athenians naturally dominate, the authors consider Sparta before Athens, reflecting the order in which the moderns have admired them. An appropriate balance is found between political, social, and cultural history, and the authors display no outlandish prejudices to derail this noble effort" 512p. illus. bibliography.index Text clean and neat, but some minor scuffing to paper wraps.

New Politicians of Fifth Century Athens

By Connor, W. Robert.

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1971. "fter the death of Pericles, a new breed of politicians - men like Cleon, Cleophon, and Hyperbolus - came to power in Athens. Rejecting the traditional source of political support, the bonds of friendship, in favor of direct appeals to the people, they signaled the emergence of a new pattern of politics. The author traces the development of this new pattern-often misunderstood, often branded "demagogy" by both ancient and modern writers-by investigating the nature of political and social organization in Athens and the vocabulary of Greek politics." 218p. Text clean and crisp, minor signs of library ownership - bookplate, stamps etc... 1st UK Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Ex-Library.
