Classical Greece provides an analysis of the physical setting of and the archaic legacy to the classical city, its economy, its civic and religious institutions, the waging of war between cities, the occurrence and ancient analysis of conflict within the city, and the private life of the citizen, finishing with history through the fifth and fourth centuries. Robin Osborne presents us with a concise, comprehensive, and authoritative book that will be enjoyed by classics and history students; students taking courses in classical Greek literature, philosophy, art, and archaeology; academics; and general readers alike.

About the Author:


Robin Osborne is a Professor of Ancient History in the University of oxford and Fellow of Corpus Christi College. He is the author of Demos: The Discovery of Classical Attika 91985), Classical Landscape with Figures: The Ancient Greek City and its Countryside (1987), Greece in the making 1200-479BC (1996), and Archaic and Classical Greek Art (1998).

Review:

Strong, clear, themed discussions; informative use of selected ancient authors. Captures the age of Athens and Sparta and the big social and cultural changes well. Deserves to oust the obsolete works that are still too easy to find! Dr Graham Shipley, Head of Ancient History Division, School
of Archaeology and Ancient History, University of Leicester.

`In an attempt to re-contextualise the phenomenon of classical Greece, this new volume in The Short Oxford History of Europe uses a topical-based approach to challenge traditional chronological narratives. The nine specially commissioned essays by seven authors step through the Economy, the
City, War, Political Conflicts and Private Life before examining the political-military flow of events. This will stimulate students to think beyond diachronic approaches and to re-examine their own understanding how the Greeks lived.'
John Lewis, Faculty of Classics, Cambridge The Anglo-Hellenic Review No 23

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The complete Short Oxford History of Europe (series editor: Professor T C W Blanning) will cover the history of Europe from Classical Greece to the present in eleven volumes. In each, experts write to their strengths tackling the key issues, including society, economy, religion, politics, and culture, head-on in chapters that will be at once wide-ranging surveys and searching analyses. Each book is specifically designed with the non-specialist reader in mind; but the authority of the contributors and the vigour of the interpretations will make them necessary and challenging reading for fellow academics across a range of disciplines. Osborne s is the third book to be launched in the series, following on from the publication of Blanning s Eighteenth and Nineteenth century volumes. Robin Osborne provides an analysis which introduces the physical world of the Greek city and the inheritance of the classical city from its archaic past. With specially commissioned chapters, a team of experts introduce the reader to the economy of the Greek city, its political and religious institutions, the waging of warfare between cities, the nature and ancient analysis of struggles within cities, and the private life of individuals. The focus then moves to diachronic change within the city, tracing the broad narratives of Greek history through the fifth and fourth centuries, and concludes by demonstrating the changing ways in which the Greeks themselves construed individual and civic life. Looking at classical Greece as a whole, the reader is introduced to general issues through use of precise examples and through the words of Greek writers themselves. Maps, a timeline, and a selective bibliography help readers to ground the information that is given and direct their further studies. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780198731542
