Review quote

"It is nicely illustrated. On the whole, it is very informative and clearly written account of early Greece, reflecting the most recent scholarship."-The Journal of Indo-European Studies ..."Osborne's provocative approach to many of the broad-ranging problems of political structure and class conflict in early Greece make for stimulating reading, and it is hard to see how Osborne's views could have been presented in a format other than a general historical survey. His book is sure to draw renewed attention to this most fascinating period of ancient Greece ."-"Bryn Mawr Classical Review "This is a major accomplishment, with rich, bibliographic essays to complement an instructive and fascinating text "Religious Studies Review."
