This admirable source book will be widely used.
(Times Educational Supplement
The modern reader can enter the ancient world through this text.
(London Review of Books
Invaluable in providing not only 'mainstream' authors but much less accessible items.
The choice of materials is excellent... Although the book is designed for classroom use, it provides an excellent introduction to the field as a whole.
Without doubt this book should be favorable received by students and scholars alike. Copious anecdotes, funerary inscriptions, legal and philosophical tracts serve to illuminate fully the position of women in Classical antiquity... Women's Life in Greece and Rome accomplishes with erudition, grace, and humor its aim.
(The History Teacher
In its third incarnation, Women's Life in Greece and Rome should remain a staple reference work for undergraduates and scholars alike.
(Bryn Mawr Classical Review
Throughout the history of this text, as the dust jacket for the first edition attests, 'what remains unchanged is the extraordinary power of these writings and the eloquence with which they speak for and about women in the ancient world.'
(Phyllis B. Katz New England Classical Journal
This text will continue to be of significant value to students and scholars alike who wish to research women in the ancient world.
(Marian Osbourne Berky Religious Studies Review
This commendable and successful work continues to generate plenty of discussion both in and out of the classroom and has clearly been a force behind the application of new methodologies in the area of women in antiquity.
