    DescriptionIn this new edition, Paul Cartledge and Antony Spawforth have taken account of recent finds and scholarship to revise and update their authoritative overview of later Spartan history, and of the social, political, economic and cultural changes in the Spartan community. This original and compelling account is especially significant in challenging the conventional misperception of Spartan 'decline' after the loss of her status as a great power on the battlefield in 371 BC. The book's focus on a frequently overlooked period makes it important not only for those interested specifically in Sparta, but also for all those concerned with Hellenistic Greece, and with the life of Greece and other Greek-speaking provinces under non-Roman rule.

    Review quote
    'The most useful history of Sparta to the end of the classical period.' - JACT Review'An important book on Sparta - the best so far, in many ways ... There are really two books here, one an exceptionally densely documented archaeological book the other a vigorous social and political history of classical Sparta.' - Simon Hornblower, Times Higher Education Supplement
