  1. Thucydides Mythistoricus (Routledge Revivals)

    By F. M. Cornford

    Series: Routledge Revivals

    First published in 1907 and reissued in 1965, this is a fascinating study of Thucydides’s History. Thucydides set out to write a truthful account of the Pelopennesian war, but his work reflects his Athenian fourth-century B.C. context, which was of a particular interest to Cornford. In this...

  2. Menander in Contexts

    Edited by Alan H. Sommerstein

    Series: Routledge Monographs in Classical Studies

    The comedies of the Athenian dramatist Menander (c. 342-291 BC) and his contemporaries were the ultimate source of a Western tradition of light drama that has continued to the present day. Yet for over a millennium, Menander’s own plays were thought to have been completely lost. Thanks to a long...

    By Michael Halleran

    Series: Routledge Revivals

    By George B. Grundy

    A History of the Greek and Roman World, first published in 1926, presents the story of Graeco-Roman antiquity from its earliest recorded origins to the height of the Roman imperium.

  5. Greek Tragedy and the Emotions (Routledge Revivals)

    An Introductory Study

    By W. B. Stanford

    Series: Routledge Revivals

    According to Aristotle the main purpose of tragedy is the manipulation of emotions, and yet there are relatively few accessible studies of the precise dynamics of emotion in the Athenian theatre. In Greek Tragedy and the Emotions, first published in 1993, W.B. Stanford reviews the evidence for ‘...

  6. Athens after the Peloponnesian War (Routledge Revivals)

    Class, Faction and Policy 403-386 B.C.

    By Barry Strauss

    Series: Routledge Revivals

    Historians are used to studying the origins of war. The rebuilding in the aftermath of war is a subject that – at least in the case of Athens – has received far less attention. Along with the problems of reconstructing the economy and replenishing the population, the problem of renegotiating...

  7. Violence, Civil Strife and Revolution in the Classical City (Routledge Revivals)

    750-330 BC

    By Andrew Lintott

    Series: Routledge Revivals

    Violent conflict between individuals and groups was as common in the ancient world as it has been in more recent history. Detested in theory, it nevertheless became as frequent as war between sovereign states. The importance of such ‘stasis’ was recognised by political thinkers of the time,...

    From the End of the Bronze Age to the Roman Occupation

    By Richard A Tomlinson

    Series: Routledge Revivals

    Argos and the Argolid, first published in 1972, presents a study of the history and achievements of the Argives, who have hitherto been largely neglected: partly because Classical Argos is overshadowed by the legends of an earlier millennium, and partly because many of her monuments and records...

  10. Ancient Fiction (Routledge Revivals)

    The Novel in the Graeco-Roman World

    By Graham Anderson

    Series: Routledge Revivals
