Book Reviews

Independent Criticism

“Exhaustively documented and developed, beautifully reasoned, clearly and–for the most part–calmly stated.”–The New Yorker

“Brilliant and moving. . . . Hanson’s informed exploration of the crucial role of the small farmer in the creation of Greek civilization is a much-needed reminder that the artistic and intellectual splendor of Athens’ great age did not spring to life fully formed, like Athena from the head of Zeus; it has its base in the countryside.”–Bernard Knox, Washington Times
