About the Author:

Mark Golden is a professor of classics at the University of Winnipeg. He is the author of Sport and Society in Ancient Greece and Greek Sport and Social Status.

Review:

"Mark Golden has produced a superb book, an important substantive and methodological contribution to the social history of ancient Athens and a model for comparable studies... That Golden raises empirical and methodological questions while at the same time significantly advancing study of this important subject is a tribute to the intellectual honesty and vitality of his book."

(American Historical Review)

"This is not just a book of colourful description but one as well of vivid insight and lively debate―a debate, moreover, that is refreshingly free of ideological polemic and informed by a keen eye for the personal implications behind any social trend and of the individual psychology underlying the collective picture... Engaging and engrossing... A considerable achievement on the author's part."

(Journal of Hellenic Studies)
