"The author's preference is for interpretations which see Greek History as the interaction of personalities, rather than for those which see it as a struggle of economic classes or of abstract ideas. He ssumes that the Greek cities of the archaic and classical periods did not inherit any political institutions from the Bronze Age; that the extensive invasions that brought Mycenaean civilization to an end destroyed political habits as effectively as stone palaces. Accordingly, he believes thta the Greeks of the historic period were engaged in the fundamental enterprise of building organized society out of nothing." from the jacket flap. Not price clipped.
