This is the first book in English to provide a systematic treatment of Panhellenism. The author argues that in archaic and classical Greece Panhellenism was a body of narratives that expressed, defined and limited the community of the Hellenes and gave it political substance. Yet Panhellenic narratives also responded to other needs of the community, in particular serving to locate the Hellenes in time and space. Thus one of the chief Panhellenic narratives, the war against the barbarian, provided the conceptual framework in which Alexander the Great could imagine his Asian campaign.

About the Author:

Lynette Mitchell is Senior Lecturer in Classics and Ancient History at the University of Exeter.

Review:

...this is a very well-written and carefully researched book that makes a significant contribution to the study of Panhellenism, the development of Greek identity and the Greek perception of the (Persian) barbarian.' (Kelly Joss Wrenhaven Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2008-05-00)

...Mitchell (Univ. of Exeter) brings to her difficult topic both erudition and refreshing common sense. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Most levels/libraries.' (P.M. Green, Emeritus, University of Iowa Choice 2008-12-00)

Lynette Mitchells Panhellenism shows that small publishers (in this case The Classical Press of Wales) continue to produce attractive, high-quality work.' (Gocha R. Tsetskhladze Ancient West & East, Vol 9, 2010)
