    Review quote
    "This beautifully-produced volume collects papers originally presented at a conference at Dartmouth College in 2003 organized in conjunction with the exhibition 'Coming of Age in Ancient Greece' at the Hood Art Museum. The contributors to this volume successfully address multiple aspects of ancient Mediterranean childhood with very little of the repetitive overlap or loss of thematic focus that can sometimes weaken edited collections. This volume represents the state of the art in Greco-Roman childhood studies and offers valuable resources to scholars of the ancient family, household, and lifecycle." Neil Bernstein in BMCR 2008.08.23
