Synopsis: This collection of essays, reflecting a diversity of approaches, examines Greece and archaelogical theories regarding the birth of classical civilization. It covers four main topics, evidence for the rise of the polis, artistic form and iconography, cults, and issues of poetry and narrative.

Review: Representing the most recent and best scholarly work in the field, the nine essays skillfully assembled by Susan Langdon in New Light On A Dark Age: Exploring the Culture of Geometric Greece were originally presented at a symposium held on the University of Missouri-Columbia campus. These essays are by some of the most prominent scholars in the field reflect a diversity of approaches to studying the development of the early Iron Age. They cover evidence for the rise of the polis, sources and uses of artistic form and iconography, development sin cults around Greece, and issues of poetry and narrative. Linking these topics are the themes of social change; mortuary practices; growth and use of sacred places; social, literary, and artistic applications of style; and Greece and the outside world. New Light On A Dark Age is a much appreciated and timely contribution to Hellenic studies. -- Midwest Book Review
