Editorial Reviews

Review

Review from previous edition: "Compendious and impressively produced." --Times Literary Supplement

"A brilliant interdisciplinary, and truly fascinating examination of how two ancient societies literally viewed dwarfs. Dasen provides her readers with an eyeful and brainful of material in this book which represents Oxford publishing at its best. Dasen has produced a true masterpiece on the subject." --Jonathan Sinclair Carey, The Art Book

"Dasen has tackled a large subject, and has done an admirable job at ordering an immense amount of evidence ... Dasen's book is a timely and valuable contribution." --Nicholas Vlahogiannis, King's College, London, Medical History

"In this learned book ... the author has made a very successful and welcome incursion into the field of Egyptology ... this is a very useful, extremely thorough, well illustrated, and at times fascinating presentation of little-known facts about the Egyptian and Greek experience of dwarfs in the ancient world." --The Classical Review 05/12/1995

"The evidence she cites is primarily iconographic, supplemented by some epigraphic, literary and skeletsl data. Much of it has till now been largely ignored and D. is to be congratulated for having brought it to the attention of art historians...a genuinely pioneering work and as such is to be warmly welcomed...D's book ... will greatly enlarge the discussion of those whom in the current jargon, have resisted the challenge of verticality." --Journal of Hellenic Studies 11/07/1996

"Well-structured and clearly written, providing a thoughtful discussion of the subject of dwarfism in two ancient cultures, and also serving as an excellent reference volume" --Journal of Egyptian Archaeology 17/07/2002

"A brilliant interdisciplinary, and truly fascinating examination of how two ancient societies literally viewed dwarfs. Dasen provides her readers with an eyeful and brainful of material in this book which represents Oxford publishing at its best. Dasen has produced a true masterpiece on the subject" --Jonathan Sinclair Carey, The Art Book 17/11/1994
