"A major contribution to our understanding of how ancient Greeks organized the vast corpus of figures constituting what we call Greek mythology.
(Timothy Gantz, from the Foreword)"
The Newmans' chart . . . should be in any collection supporting research in classical studies.--Choice
This book [is] an indespensable tool for every classicist who works in the field of mythology. It should find its way on the shelves of each Classics department as a standard reference book.--Scholia Reviews
Exhaustive. . . . Embrace[s] the entirety of Greek myth. . . . The layout and typography are of quite stunning complexity and elegance. The ingenuity, research, decision-making and interminable grind at intractable (and often incompatible) testimony that ha[s] gone into [this] truly Herculean labor almost def[ies] comprehension.--Los Angeles Times Book Review
A Genealogical Chart of Greek Mythology provides something absolutely new in the world of scholarship and reference: a meticulously researched resource which places 3,673 named mythological figures from the surviving classical Greek literary corpus in a coherent genealogical context. . . . The scope of the work is breathtaking, and its organization brilliantly realized. . . . Anyone who has undertaken research in classical or humanist literature or Renaissance painting knows how difficult, often impossible, it is to sort out the family and extra-marital relationships among mythological characters. This long-overdue, very authoritative reference book should find a place in every research and academic library.--Elizabeth L. Diefendorf, Frederick Phineas and Sandra Priest Rose Chief Librarian, General Research Division, New York Public Library
A surprisingly happy book to use.--Times Literary Supplement
A unique reference resource, invaluable to those working with Greek mythology. A must-purchase for college and research libraries.--Jeffrey Kaimowitz, Watkinson Library, Trinity College
