Editorial Reviews


"Anthony Snodgrass, as the groundbreaking and often brilliant papers collected in Archaeology and the Emergence of Greece amply testify, is committed to common sense, quantification, and limited conclusions."—Peter Greene, New York Review of Books, 30 November 2006

"In this work, the reader has the opportunity to read Snodgrass's arguments as a whole, grouped by theme, and see how 40 years of research by one of classical archaeology's foremost scholars have shaped the evolution of that discipline and others. Hence, from an historiographical standpoint, this work is uniquely invaluable for anyone who wishes to grasp the complexities of the various scholarly debates. . . . It is a testament to the myriad ways in which Anthony Snodgrass has affected the discipline of Classical Archaeology and has been, in turn affected by it. This is a very important work and will surely be useful to undergraduate and even graduate instruction. It will hopefully encourage debate over issues many had thought long closed."—Timothy Howe, Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 12 July 2007

"As one would expect from Snodgrass, the contributions are unfailingly lively and challenging, and the new comments are interesting. Although brief, and occasionally wryly humorous, they do contain some important thoughts and rebuttals. . . . The collection is convenient and well presented. One could give the whole to any aspiring graduate as a model of how to construct arguments . . . . It is in the construction of a wise and fundamentally humane archaeology that this book achieves more than simple convenience. It is the intellectual challenge"The exemplification of how to argue a case, to explain, and to remain open to new ideas and new discoveries"That constitutes the value of this book."—Christopher Smith, American Journal of Archaeology Online Book Review, October 2007

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
There is little that is new here. It is a summary of many years of papers, etc. over the long career of an estimable scholar in the field of Greek prehistory. It is useful to have these important documents in a single handy volume. It tells us where we have come from in a very fast moving field of research.
