Editorial Reviews

Review

"An excellent monograph on several aspects of the varied culture of ancient Greece. Scholars and graduate students will applaud her study. . . ."--Choice

"Eminently engaging . . . This is an important, fascinating book that should not be ignored by any monetary theorist."--L. Randall Wray, Journal of Economic Issues

"Kurke's book is lucidly and coherently written. . . . Even if we cannot unreservedly sign up to Kurke's thesis, we still feel that we have learned a great deal in following its progress."--Sue Blundell, American Historical Review

From the Inside Flap

"Leslie Kurke's readings are always interesting, often simply brilliant. She does a superb job of presenting Herodotus as a locus for the preservation of the archaic debate. Highly innovative and well-documented, this book will be a model for future work in the broader field of historically grounded poetics."--Josiah Ober, Princeton University

"Leslie Kurke has written an original and exciting work that will refine our understanding and pique our interest in ancient metals and money. This book raises gripping questions about important ancient practices and ideologies and offers a powerful argument for using both positivistic and theoretical approaches to ancient material. Coins, Bodies, Games, and Gold will give classicists much to ponder and argue about; cultural historians and comparatists in other fields, too, should read this book."--Deborah Boedecker, Center for Hellenic Studies and Brown University
