The Realness of Things Past: Ancient Greece and Ontological History
The Realness of Things Past proposes a new paradigm of historical practice. It questions the way we conventionally historicize the experiences of non-modern peoples, western and non-western, and makes the case for an alternative. It shows how our standard analytical devices impose modern, dualist metaphysical conditions upon all non-modern realities, thereby authorizing us to align those realities with our own modern ontological commitments, fundamentally altering their contents in the process. The net result is a practice that homogenizes the past's many different ways of being human. To produce histories that are more ethically defensible, more philosophically robust, and more historically meaningful, we need to take an ontological turn in our practice. The book works to formulate a non-dualist historicism that will allow readers to analyse each past reality on its own ontological terms, as a more or less autonomous world unto itself. To make the case for this alternative paradigm, the book engages with currents of thought in many different intellectual provinces, from anthropology and postcolonial studies to the sociology of science and quantum physics. And to demonstrate how the new paradigm might work in practice, it uses classical Athens as its primary case study. The Realness of Things Past is divided into three parts. To highlight the limitations of conventional historicist analysis and the need for an alternative, Part I critically scrutinizes our standard modern accounts of democratic Athens. Part II draws on a wide range of historical, ethnographic, and theoretical literatures to frame ethical and philosophical mandates for the proposed ontological turn. To illustrate the historical benefits of this alternative paradigm, Part III then shows how it allows us to produce an entirely new and more meaningful account of the Athenian politeia or way of life. The book is expressly written to be accessible to a non-specialist, cross-disciplinary readership.

Motherhood and Infancies in the Mediterranean in Antiquity
Motherhood and childhood are social and cultural constructions that have their origins in prehistoric times and are visible through Greek and Roman discourses in Antiquity. This volume explores various images of maternity and infancy, and the identification of women and womanhood in prehistoric and classic societies. Aspects such as the crucial role of maintenance activities and care, the processes of socialization and learning, the impact of infant death, the figure of the mother queen, the religious discourses about motherhood, the rules on parental rights, the transgressions of traditional motherhood and the emotional aspects of the mother-child relation are analysed. The book covers the ancient Mediterranean area, from Mesopotamia to the Iberian Peninsula and from prehistoric communities to classic societies, with Mesopotamian, Phoenician and Iberian examples. A multidisciplinary approach is adopted, analysing material culture, representations and texts to gain a deeper understanding of the plurality of motherhood, and the diversity of women's agency through history.

Sophocles: A Study of His Theater in Its Political and Social Context
Here, for the first time in English, is celebrated French classicist Jacques Jouanna's magisterial account of the life and work of Sophocles. Exhaustive and authoritative, this acclaimed book combines biography and detailed studies of Sophocles' plays, all set in the rich context of classical Greek tragedy and the political, social, religious, and cultural world of Athens's greatest age, the fifth century. Sophocles was the commanding figure of his day. The author of Oedipus Rex and Antigone, he was not only the leading dramatist but also a distinguished politician, military commander, and religious figure. And yet the evidence about his life has, until now, been fragmentary. Reconstructing a lost literary world, Jouanna has finally assembled all the available information, culled from inscriptions, archaeological evidence, and later sources. He also offers a huge range of new interpretations, from his emphasis on the significance of Sophocles' political and military offices (previously often seen as honorary) to his analysis of Sophocles' plays in the mythic and literary context of fifth-century drama. Written for scholars, students, and general readers, this book will interest anyone who wants to know more about Greek drama in general and Sophocles in particular. With an extensive bibliography and useful summaries not only of Sophocles' extant plays but also, uniquely, of the fragments of plays that have been partially lost, it will be a standard reference in classical studies for years to come.

Athenian Potters and Painters Volume II
This volume presents the proceedings of the second Athenian Potters and Painters conference, which was held at the American School of Classical Studies, Athens 2007. Together with the 1994 conference (Volume I, Oxbow 1997), these are the first of their kind - focusing purely on Athenian pottery and addressing key aspects of its study. The thirty-two papers contained here are the result not only of a large amount of new material but also the dynamic appearance of a younger generation of scholars dealing with the subject. Subject areas range from the study of the potters and painters themselves, to shape, subject matter, chronology, export, excavation pottery, context, and the influence of Athenian vases on pottery from other regions of the Mediterranean and vice versa. Three papers in Greek.

A Student Commentary on Pausanias Book 2
In the ten books of his Periegesis, or Description of Greece, the ancient Greek traveler Pausanias (second century CE) describes the central regions of ancient Greece, giving his readers a wealth of information about religious rites, indigenous myths, historical events, sculptural and artistic works, temples, local customs, and much more. In A Student Commentary on Pausanias Book 2, Patrick Paul Hogan provides intermediate-level students of Classical Greek the necessary linguistic, historical, mythographical, archaeological, and geographical information to read and comprehend Book 2 of Pausanias' Periegesis. Book 2 of Pausanias' work covers several major cities of the northeast Peloponnesus, principally Corinth but also Argos, Epidaurus, and Troezen, as well as the prominent island of Aegina. In A Student Commentary on Pausanias Book 1, Hogan reintroduced students to Pausanias after nearly a century. In this new volume he does not focus exclusively on the topography and material remains of the areas he describes: his line-by-line commentary on Pausanias' text devotes equal attention to explicating the vocabulary and syntax of the Greek and putting into context the myriad historical and mythological references found throughout the text, for example, the life of the Sicyonian politician Aratus and the myth of Hyrnetho, daughter of Temenus. A Student Commentary on Pausanias Book 2 includes the full text of Book 2 in Classical Greek together with Hogan's commentary. The book is accessible to intermediate-level students, whether undergraduates or graduate students, who are ready to read extended passages of Classical Greek prose, and will also be of interest to scholars of the topography, history, and mythology of ancient Greece, specifically the Argolid.

Wars and Battles of Ancient Greece
One of the most popular areas of ancient history is war in the Greek world. The number of books, articles, web pages and blogs on every conceivable aspect of war in ancient Greece is endless, and continues to grow. So why add to the pile? Wars & Battles of Ancient Greece is not just another arid account of wars and battles, with endless, often exaggerated, casualty figures and repetitive tactics. It is different from most other books in the field because it has context as its focus: each of the battles covered is, where sources permit, placed in its historical, political and social context: why was the battle fought, how was it fought, what was the outcome, and what happened next ? No war or battle has ever been fought in isolation - there is always a prelude, a casus belli and a series of consequences. These are revealed wherever possible for each of the wars and battles in this book. In order to reinforce our focus on context the book includes chapters covering warfare in civilizations and cultures before Greece; the Greek war machine; and Greek women and conflict.

The Greek Superpower: Sparta in the Self-Definitions of Athenians
Sparta, notoriously, was for Greeks the greatest Hellenic military, or moral, power for most of the fifth, as well as the early fourth, century. For Greek intellectuals Sparta's value as inspiration, or indeed model, far surpassed that of the Athenian demokratia. Leading politicians of Athens, Kimon and Perikles, evaluated their city against Spartan norms. The purpose of this volume is to explore Sparta's moral penetration of Athens itself. The book examines the systematic attempts by Athenian writers - Xenophon, Plato and several others - to apply Spartan principles to reformed or ideal states. This Athenian intellectual practice of designing `super-Spartas' went beyond mere abstraction. The volume will consider the case of Kritias, one of Athens' rulers at the hinge moment of 404/3, who not only wrote eulogistically of Spartan practices but also attempted - under the protection of Spartan troops - to reform Athens on Spartan lines, a process which involved disfranchising (and deporting to the Peiraieus) the majority of Athenian citizens, in order to achieve a Sparta-like social structure of full citizens, perioikoi and the unfree. To understand why and how that attempt was made, and why it did not succeed, is not only fundamental for Athenian history; it also requires an understanding of Sparta and of its reception within Athens.

Flame of Miletus: The Birth of Science in Ancient Greece (and How It Changed the World)
Miletus: one of the wealthiest and most important towns in ancient Greece. It was here, on the Aegean coast of Asia Minor, in the 6th century BC, that the great traditions of Greek science and philosophy sparked into life, setting in motion a chain of knowledge that would change the world, forever. This is the extraordinary story of Greek science from its earliest beginnings through its development in classical Athens and Hellenistic Alexandria and its subsequent diffusion to the wider world. Most histories of Greek science end with the collapse of the Graeco-Roman world in late antiquity and the closing of all classical schools of 'pagan' philosophy in A.D. 529. But acclaimed historian John Freely here continues the story to tell of how the elements of Greek scientific and philosophical learning were adopted by the Islamic world and the transmission of Graeco-Islamic science to western Europe, as well as the preservation of Hellenic culture in Byzantium and its profound influence on the European renaissance and our modern world.
