Product description

The role of warfare is central to our understanding of the ancient Greek world. In this book and the companion work, War and Society in the Roman World, the wider social context of war is explored. This volume examines its impact on Greek society from Homeric times to the age of Alexander and his successors and discusses the significance of the causes and profits of war, the links between war, piracy and slavery, and trade, and the ideology of warfare in literature and sculpture.

Review quote

'Several of these essays were ground-breaking when published and continue to influence modern interpretations of a society that is still overly idealized in the popular and even the scholarly imagination ... This is an important read for anyone speculating in ancient Greek history, and can also be rewarding reading for anyone interesting in the nature of war and the interrelationship of war and society.' - The NYMAS Review, The New York Military Affairs Symposium
