A History of the Archaic Greek World provides thematic coverage of the years 1200-479 BCE. By revisiting the evidence from the period, with a critical and analytical eye, Jonathan M. Hall gives the reader the opportunity to investigate at first hand this crucial formative period of Greek history. In doing so, this book casts new light on traditional themes such as the rise of the city-state, citizen militias, and the origins of egalitarianism.
