Editorial Reviews

"This collection of material is especially valuable for the holistic approach it takes in assessing the world of the fifth and fourth centuries. The focus is not narrow or purely literary and artistic. Thus, chapters on the Aegean world, the natural habitat, and the geological basis of the Greek environment place Greek society, farming, and settlement in a context far more deeply rooted than any purely literary study." (Pheonix, 2009)
