A systematic survey of archaic Greek society and culture which introduces the reader to a wide range of new approaches to the period.
* The first comprehensive and accessible survey of developments in the study of archaic Greece
* Places Greek society of c.750-480 BCE in its chronological and geographical context
* Gives equal emphasis to established topics such as tyranny and political reform and newer subjects like gender and ethnicity
* Combines accounts of historical developments with regional surveys of archaeological evidence and in-depth treatments of selected themes
* Explores the impact of Eastern and other non-Greek cultures in the development of Greece
* Uses archaeological and literary evidence to reconstruct broad patterns of social and cultural development

"For those interested in Classical Greece, this volume is an essential." (Near East Archaeological Society Bulletin, 11 December 2013)"This is a varied, wide-ranging, stimulating and exciting volume which should open the way to even further investigations of archaic Greece." Bryn Mawr Classical Review, February 2011"Offers an unprecedented range and depth of perspectives and material, much of which has been otherwise unavailable in English." Ancient West and East
