Editorial Reviews


Largely derived from a conference held at the University of St.Andrews in 1995, this collection of 11 essays takes a fresh look at the relationship between the city and the ancient economy...Taken as a whole, these articles attempt to move beyond the standard primitivist versus modernist view of the ancient economy, though most seem more comfortable in the latter camp. Even so, they try to address the question in new ways...Contributors present their arguments in a clear fashion largely devoid of the confusing jargon typical of books devoted to the subject. In doing so they have created a work bound to pique the interest both of the newcomers to the field and of general readers and to stimulate discussion among expert scholars.. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
