Product Description


“A valuable, resourceful and innovative book.”
(Maya Vassileva Ancient West & East 2012-03-11)

From the Inside Flap

"This book is a remarkable achievement: fascinating, stimulating, in many ways brilliant and revolutionary because it forces us at every turn and on almost every page to reassess traditional views, familiar explanations, and a worldview we took for granted."—Kurt Raaflaub, co-author of The Origins of Democracy in Ancient Greece

"Munn has a superb gift for association, interconnecting facts into completely unexpected new vistas."—Henrik Versnel, author of Triumphus: An Inquiry into the Origin, Development and Meaning of the Roman Triumph

HASH(0xa73ab480) out of 5 stars Suberb Scholarship! Much Needed Information on the Influence of Asia on Greece! Nov. 27 2012
By John E.D.P. Malin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book should be better known and read. It is a lucid understanding of the notion of tyranny as it evolved in Asia (ancient Lydia) and impacted Greece. It requires careful reading and thoughtful reflection on a very timely topic in ancient Greek scholarship.

I will leave it to a confrere to write a detailed analysis of its many perceptive observations. The Greeks, and the Greeks living in the Aegean Islands and Crete, that were employed as mercenaries by the Imperial culture of Pharonic civilization from the 18th to 20th Dynasties.
