Editorial Reviews

“Students of biblical history and archaeology will findthis volume of particular interest.”  (Near EastArchaeological Society Bulletin, 11 December 2013)

“The book is well produced, with an excellent binding and aminimum of typographical errors. A glossary of terms used in thetext, an impressive bibliography, and a sufficient index add to theusefulness and user-friendliness of the book.”  (TheAmerican Journal of Archaeology, 1 January 2013)

"The book is well structured and is divided thematically into 10chap¬ters . . . The book can be therefore recommended as auseful introduction to the study of Archaic Ionia for students andscholars alike." (Archaeological Review, 1 April 2011)

"This was a missed opportunity, but not significant enough todiminish the book's success and usefulness." (Bryn Mawr ClassicalReview, 17 April 2011)

"The study, and especially the maps, could prove a most usefulpreparation or ready reference when reading Herodotus." (BookNews Inc, November 2010)

"Its accessibility and organization provides a much neededbridge between Classical and ‘mainstream' archaeology, andbrings both the ideas and this intriguing region to a widerreadership." (Minerva, November/December 2010)
