Providing a human dimension to more standard accounts of classical history, Michael Grant here offers fresh insight into the customs and conduct of individuals often ignored by traditional studies of the period. Along with the most recent advances in archaeology and anthropology and his extensive knowledge of the ancient world's literature, philosophy, and religion, Grant shows us the ancient Greece and Rome known to ordinary people. The status of women, citizens as well as slaves, and of freedmen and women are all focal points in his analysis of social structures. In addition, he examines the lives of foreigners within Greek and Roman cities and reconsiders the influence of Marxist social analysis on the field. A chronological table of principal events of Greek and Roman history and a full bibliography make A Social History of Greece and Rome a complete resource for those interested in the human drama of life in ancient Greece and Rome.show more
