About this Book

A systematic survey of archaic Greek society and culture which introduces the reader to a wide range of new approaches to the period.

  • Gives equal emphasis to established topics such as tyranny and political reform and newer subjects like gender and ethnicity
  • Combines accounts of historical developments with regional surveys of archaeological evidence and in-depth treatments of selected themes
  • Explores the impact of Eastern and other non-Greek cultures in the development of Greece
  • Uses archaeological and literary evidence to reconstruct broad patterns of social and cultural development
