Description

This book presents a challenge to the long held view that the predominantly agricultural economies of ancient Greece and Rome were underdeveloped. It shows that the exploitation of natural resources, manufacturing and the building trade all made significant contributions to classical economies. It will be an indispensable resource for those interested in the period.

Reviews

'This collection of papers is an important and valuable attempt to set them [discussions] off in the right direction, containing more intereting material and anaylsis than I can cover here. I recommend it warmly.' - Classical Review
