Editorial Reviews

“While the target audience may be that of the non-expert or undergraduate student, scholars, too, will find much in this book.  Demand succeeds in making her Mediterranean truly a fantastic cauldron.”  (Revue des Etudes Anciennes, 1 December 2012)

“For these reasons, and despite its shortcomings, the book is worth reading and the author should be praised for bringing together a vast body of complex data with knowledge and erudition.”  (The Anglo-Hellenic Review, 1 October 2012)

"Recommended.  Upper-division undergraduates and above.”  (Choice, 1 September 2012)
