The complete Short Oxford History of Europe (series editor: Professor T C W Blanning) will cover the history of Europe from Classical Greece to the present in eleven volumes. In each, experts write to their strengths tackling the key issues, including society, economy, religion, politics, and culture, head-on in chapters that will be at once wide-ranging surveys and searching analyses. Each book is specifically designed with the non-specialist reader in mind; but the authority of the contributors and the vigour of the interpretations will make them necessary and challenging reading for fellow academics across a range of disciplines. Osborne's is the third book to be launched in the series, following on from the publication of Blanning's Eighteenth and Nineteenth century volumes. Robin Osborne provides an analysis which introduces the physical world of the Greek city and the inheritance of the classical city from its archaic past. With specially commissioned chapters, ateam of experts introduce the reader to the economy of the Greek city, its political and religious institutions, the waging of warfare between cities, the nature and ancient analysis of struggles within cities, and the private life of individuals. The focus then moves to diachronic change within the city, tracing the broad narratives of Greek history through the fifth and fourth centuries, and concludes by demonstrating the changing ways in which the Greeks themselves construed individual and civic life. Looking at classical Greece as a whole, the reader is introduced to general issues through use of precise examples and through the words of Greek writers themselves. Maps, a timeline, and a selective bibliography help readers to ground the information that is given and direct their further studies.

Das Auftreten der "grossen Gesetzgeber", die Entstehung schriftlich fixierter Gesetze und die "Kodifikation des Rechts" in der griechischen Welt des 7. und 6. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. gelten als entscheidende Impulse des Wandels der archaischen Polis zum klassischen Stadtstaat. Das Buch bietet eine quellenkritische Aufarbeitung der einschlagigen literarischen Tradition, empirische Analysen zu einzelnen Gesetzgebern und Gesetzen, eine umfassende Auswertung epigraphischer Zeugnisse der fruhen Gesetzgebung und eine strukturgeschichtliche Einordnung der dabei erzielten Ergebnisse. So entsteht das differenzierte Bild eines Prozesses, in dem die Entwicklung von Institutionen und Verfahren der Gesetzgebung die Konsolidierung der besonderen Staatlichkeit der Polis wesentlich vorantrieb. "Holkeskamps Arbeit verdient zu Recht das Pradikat 'grosser Wurf'". Das Historisch-Politische Buch "Das vorliegende Buch ist ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Wurdigung eines zentralen Themas der Geschichte des archaischen Griechenlands, es erschliesst weitverstreutes Material und eroffnet den Zugang zu der fast unuberschaubar gewordenen Fulle wissenschaftlicher Bemuhungen um das Thema." KLIO "acomprehensive and thorough a In sum, HolkeskampAes full study will be indispensable for specialists in archaic Greek history and law." American Historical Review "aH.aes book makes a compelling, thorough and insightful contribution to the study of early Greek law and should not be overlooked by scholars or advanced students in any aspect of the subject."

This fascinating new book explores the world of portraiture from a number of vantage points, and asks key questions about its nature. How has portraiture changed over the centuries? How have portraits represented their subjects, and how have they been interpreted? Issues of identity, modernity, and gender are considered within a cultural and historical context.Shearer West uncovers much intriguing detail about a genre that has often been seen as purely representational, featuring examples from African tribes to Renaissance princes, and from 'stars' such as David and Victoria Beckham to ordinary people. In the process, she shows us how to communicate with the past in an exciting new way.
