Greece in the Catch of 1200-479 BC is an accessible and complete place of Greek history from the late Bronze Age to the Classical Period.The first edition of this book innovated by acknowledging that, except for a small number of archaic, poems and inscriptions, the majority of our literary evidence of archaic Greece pointed out only what the later authors meant, and was submitted to systematic selection and distortion.This book offers a narrative that recognizes the later traditions, traditions, but insists that we must primarily confront contemporary testimonies, which is largely archaeological and art history, and must make sense in its own terms.In this second edition, as well as updating the text to take into account the latest scholarships and scholarships and to re-recommend, Robin Osborne addressed more explicitly the weaknesses and unsustainable interpretations that the first edition has chosen simply to pass over.From now on, he explains why this book proposes no “rise of the polis” and no “colonization”, and why the treatment of the Greek colony abroad is necessarily spread over the different chapters.Students and teachers will particularly appreciate the strengthening of the discussion of economic history and the most systematic discussion of gender and sexuality issues.
