"...bold, innovative, and highly original study...this is a spectacular book...one of the most intelligent analysis of Greek Geometric art ever written. Its brilliance lies in its simplicity. Well conceived and thought through, thoroughly researched, richly illustrated, and elegantly written, Art and Identity is a "must-read" for anyone even remotely interested in early Greece. It will quickly take its place as a seminal study, one that will re-orient the way in which we look at pictures in the corpus of Greek Geometric figural representation. --BMCR
This book explores how art and material culture were used to construct age, gender, and social identity in the Greek Early Iron Age, 1100-700 BC. This study offers a comprehensive view of early Greece by recognizing the place of children and women in a warrior-focused society.
