During the three centuries from 800 to 500 B.C., the Greek world evolved from a primitive society--both culturally and economically--to one whose artistic products dominated all Mediterranean markets, supported by a wide overseas trade. In the following two centuries came the literary, philosophical, and artistic masterpieces of the classic area. Vital to this advance was the development of the polis, a collective institution in which citizens had rights as well as duties under the rule of law, a system hitherto unknown in human history. In this study, the first systematic exploration of the forces that created the political framework of Greek civilization, Chester Starr shows how the Greeks emerged form a Homeric world of individuals to the polis of 500 B.C. The age-old conflict between the self-serving demands of human beings and the less vocally-expressed needs of the community serves as the backbone of Starr's interdisciplinary analysis of the rise of the polis.

Review:


"A concise attempt to pin down the historical development of the Greek polis from its 'initial crystallization' in the eighth century to the attainment of its classic form in 500....for graduate students and serious undergraduates the book is an ideal vademecum through the dim, formative period of the early city-state."--The Classical World


"An admirable essay...The book is a useful guide to what has been done on the history of the polis and raises issues suitable for investigation in seminars or individual research."--Religious Studies Review
