302 Hunter, Virginia J. POLICING ATHENS Social Control in the Attic Lawsuits, 420-320 B. C.
Princeton University Press 1993 0691032688 / 9780691032689 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Minor shelfwear to DJ else Fine. ; 1.25 x 9.75 x 6.75 Inches; 324 pages; From household gossip to public beatings, this social history explores the many channels through which Athenians maintained public order. Virginia Hunter draws mostly on Attic court proceedings, which allowed for a wide range of evidence, including common rumors about a defendant's character and testimony, obtained under torture, of slaves against their masters. She describes Athenian "policing" as a form of social control that took place across a range of private and public levels. Not only does policing appear to have been a collective enterprise, but its methods were embedded in a variety of social institutions, resulting in the blurring of the line between state and society. Hunter's inquiry into topics such as household authority, disputes among kin, the presence of slaves in the house, gossip in the home and neighborhood, and forms of public punishment reveals a continuum extending from self-regulation among kin to punitive actions enforced by the state. Recognizing the bias of legal documents toward the wealthy, Hunter concentrates on exposing the voices of the less powerful and less privileged members of society, including women and slaves. In so doing she is among the first to address systematically such important issues as the authority of women, self-help, and corporal punishment.

306 Ismard, Paulin LA CITÉ DES RÉSEAUX Athènes Et Ses Associations, Vie-Ier Siècle Av. J. -C.
Publications De La Sorbonne 2010 2859446532 / 9782859446536 Paperback Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Two stamps to textblock "Service de Presse" else very light shelfwear. ; Based on the author's doctoral dissertation (Univ. Paris-I, 2008) La démocratie athénienne ne fut pas seulement affaire d'institutions politiques. Sa pérennité, depuis la fin de la période archaïque jusqu'au r siècle avant notre ère, tient en grande partie à l'existence d'une vie communautaire particulièrement dense qui, entre la sphère de la famille et celle de la cité, participait à la construction du lien social. Qu'il s'agisse de subdivisions civiques (dèmes, phratries) , de communautés sacerdotales (genê) ou d'associations cultuelles (thiases, orgéons, synodes, eranoi) , c'est au sein de ces différents groupes que chaque citoyen prenait part à la vie démocratique. Structurées autour de pratiques cultuelles spécifiques, possédant des terres et des biens, désignant en leur sein des magistrats ou votant des lois et des décrets, toutes ces associations ne constituaient pas pour autant des entités fermées sur elles-mêmes. Leur étude croisée fournit à ce titre un point d'observation à partir duquel le fonctionnement de la société civique athénienne peut être appréhendé dans son ensemble. À cette aune, la cité apparaît comme un faisceau d'entités composites, un ensemble de réseaux de multiples dimensions, loin de l'image stéréotypée de la cité une et indivisible promue par l'idéologie civique. Peut-être est-ce précisément là que réside la grande originalité de l'Athènes classique : ces communautés au fonctionnement emboîté forment la trame d'un espace public pluridimensionnel. Largement inspirée de la démarche de la micro-histoire, cette étude propose ultimement une hypothèse sur la nature même du politique athénien. ; 522 pages

Franz Steiner Verlag 1996 3515068600 / 9783515068604 Softcover Fine 
Historia : Einzelschriften ; Heft 96; 141 pages; In dem vorliegenden Band wird in drei ausgewahlten Bereichen die Art des Zusammenwirkens zwischen der politischen Elite und der einfachen Burgerschaft genauer analysiert. Dabei zeigt sich, daa der hohe Zeit- und Kommunikationsaufwand der Elite nicht durch den groaen Einflua des Volkes auf Entscheidungsinhalte zu erklaren ist, sondern daa es sich um Konsensrituale handelt, die mit geringen Entscheidungsspielraumen des Volkes aufs beste korrespondieren. Von ausgepragteren demokratischen Zugen kann also in der romischen Republik nicht die Rede sein. "Indices erleichtern den Zugang zu einem Band, der an Gedankenreichtum, stets sorgfaltig dokumentiert, einen ungewohnlich hohen Rang einnimmt." Tyche Aus dem Inhalt: M.

Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). Some rubbing to DJ with 2 tiny tears and 1 rubbed spot. ; The grandeur and power of Thucydides' The Peloponnesian War have enthralled readers, historians, and statesmen alike for two and a half millennia, and the work and its author have had an enduring influence on those who think about international relations and war, especially in our own time. In Thucydides, Donald Kagan, one of our foremost classics scholars, illuminates the great historian and his work both by examining him in the context of his time and by considering him as a revisionist historian. Thucydides took a spectacular leap into modernity by refusing to seek explanations for human behavior in the will of the gods, or even in the will of individuals, looking instead at the behavior of men in society. In this context, Kagan explains how The Peloponnesian War differs significantly from other accounts offered by Thucydides' contemporaries and stands as the first modern work of political history, dramatically influencing the manner in which history has been conceptualized ever since. ; 8.9 X 6.2 X 1.2 inches; 272 pages

327 Kamm, Antony JULIUS CAESAR A Life
Routledge 2006 0415364159 / 9780415364157 Hardcover Fine with no dust jacket 
0.63 x 9.21 x 6.14 Inches; 172 pages; This is a fresh account of Julius Caesar - a brilliant politician and intriguing figure who became sole ruler of the Roman Empire. "Julius Caesar" examines key figures such as Marius, Sulla, Cicero, Mark Antony, Gaius Octavius (emperor Augustus) , Calpurnia and Cleopatra, as well as the unnamed warriors who fought for and against him, and politicians who supported and opposed him. Including new translations from classical sources, Antony Kamm sets Caesar's life against the historical, political and social background of the times and addresses key issues: Did Caesar destroy the Republic? What was the legality of his position and the moral justifications of his actions? How good general was he? What was his relationship with Cleopatra? Why was he assassinated? What happened next? This is Caesar - the lavish spender, the military strategist, a considerable orater and historical writer, and probably the most influential figure of his time - in all his historical glory.

Faint foxing to textblock. Base of textblock has 3 ink dots and small ink line. Text clean. Faint yellowing to DJ. ; This book challenges the current view of the Homeric epics that they reflect only the institutions and ideas of the Dark Ages, during which they were composed, telling us nothing about the Mycenaean Age preceding it. Comparing evidence from the Near East with the Homeric corpus, Peter Karavites argues that the epics actually contain much that harks back to the Mycenaean Age, and that the two eras may not be completely discontinuous after all. Most contemporary scholars maintain that the mighty Mycenaean period was almost completely separated from the Dark Ages and that virtually no evidence of the former remains, with the exception of the archeological finds and the meager testimony of the Linear B tablets. However, the Near Eastern evidence about treaties and other forms of promising suggests that the "Iliad" and "Odyssey" may indeed provide historical pictures of the Mycenaean times featured in their narratives.; Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum; 224 pages

332 Keaney, John J. THE COMPOSITION OF ARISTOTLE'S ATHENAION POLITEIA Observation and Explanation

Book is fine. DJ has light shelfwear. ; Xii, 191pp. Discovered one hundred years ago, Aristotle's Athenaion Politeia is invaluable to contemporary understanding of Athenian democracy. As a historical record, however, it has been found to be so unreliable that some have questioned its true authorship, and it has remained largely ignored by those studying philosophy and literature. Keaney uses a literary approach to reassert Aristotle's authorship and to present the Athenaion Politeia as a document that defies the constraints of any particular genre--probably never intended to be a piece of historical writing. He goes beyond the traditional approach of historical analysis to consider the work as characteristic of a new and innovative genre created by Aristotle, that of empirically-based cultural history. ; 191 pages

334 Kelly, Christopher RULING THE LATER ROMAN EMPIRE
Belknap Press of Harvard University Press 2004 0674015649 / 9780674015647 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Book and DJ are fine. ; In this highly original work, Christopher Kelly paints a remarkable picture of running a superstate. He portrays a complex system of government openly regulated by networks of personal influence and the payment of money. Focusing on the Roman Empire after Constantine's conversion to Christianity, Kelly illuminates a period of increasingly centralized rule through an ever more extensive and intrusive bureaucracy. The book opens with a view of its times through the eyes of a high-ranking official in sixth-century Constantinople, John Lydus. His On the Magistracies of the Roman State, the only memoir of its kind to come down to us, gives an impassioned and revealing account of his career and the system in which he worked. Kelly draws a wealth of insight from this singular memoir and goes on to trace the operation of power and influence, exposing how these might be successfully deployed or skillfully diverted by those wishing either to avoid government regulation or to subvert it for their own ends. Ruling the Later Roman Empire presents a fascinating procession of officials, emperors, and local power brokers, winners and losers, mapping their experiences, their conflicting loyalties, their successes, and their failures. ; 341 pages

336 Keuls, Eva C. THE REIGN OF THE PHALLUS Sexual Politics in Ancient Athens
New York, NY, U.S.A. Harper & Row, Publishers 1985 0060153008 / 9780060153007 First Edition Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Book is fine. DJ is in plastic sleeve. ; At once daring and authoritative, this book offers a profusely illustrated history of sexual politics in ancient Athens. The phallus was pictured everywhere in ancient Athens: painted on vases, sculpted in marble, held aloft in gigantic form in public processions, and shown in stage comedies. This obsession with the phallus dominated almost every aspect of public life, influencing law, myth, and customs, affecting family life, the status of women, even foreign policy. This is the first book to draw together all the elements that made up the "reign of the phallus"—men's blatant claim to general dominance, the myths of rape and conquest of women, and the reduction of sex to a game of dominance and submission, both of women by men and of men by men. In her elegant and lucid text Eva Keuls not only examines the ideology and practices that underlay the reign of the phallus, but also uncovers an intense counter-movement—the earliest expressions of feminism and antimilitarism. Complementing the text are 345 reproductions of Athenian vase paintings. Some have been reproduced in a larger format and gathered in an appendix for easy reference and closer study. These revealing illustrations are a vivid demonstration that classical Athens was more sexually polarized and repressive of women than any other culture in Western history. ; 452 pages

345 Krostenko, Brian A. CICERO, CATULLUS, AND THE LANGUAGE OF SOCIAL PERFORMANCE
University Of Chicago Press 2001 0226454444 / 9780226454443 Paperback Very Good+ 
Scholar's name to half-title (Robert Brown). Else very light shelfwear. ; Charm, wit, and style were critical, but dangerous, ingredients in the social repertoire of the Roman elite. Their use drew special attention, but also exposed one to potential ridicule or rejection for valuing style over substance. Brian A. Krostenko explores the complexities and ambiguities of charm, wit, and style in Roman literature of the late Republic by tracking the origins, development, and use of the terms that described them, which he calls "the language of social performance." As Krostenko demonstrates, a key feature of this language is its capacity to express both approval and disdain—an artifact of its origins at a time when the "style" and "charm" of imported Greek cultural practices were greeted with both enthusiasm and hostility. Cicero played on that ambiguity, for example, by chastising lepidus ("fine") boys in the "Second Oration against Catiline" as degenerates, then arguing in his De Oratore that the successful speaker must have a certain charming lepos ("wit"). Catullus, in turn, exploited and inverted the political subtexts of this language for innovative poetic and erotic idioms. ; 336 pages

350 Lacey, W. K. AUGUSTUS AND THE PRINCIPATE The Evolution of the System
Francis Cairns 1996 090520591x / 9780905205915 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Dustjacket has very minor shelfwear. Dustjacket is now protected in mylar. ; Updating and enlarging on a lifetime's work on Augustus and his `constitutions' Lacey discusses the process of gradual encroachment whereby Augustus unobtrusively and with minimal opposition accumulated more and more power, whilst outwardly retaining the facade of a republic. Chapters examine the constitutional settlements of 27 and 23 BC, to which Lacey attributes less importance than most, the nature of the role given to Agrippa, the evolution of tribunician power, his religious prominence and dynastic arrangements. This all adds up to a very thorough and incisive study of how under Augustus the republic finally died and the principate was born. ; ARCA Classical and Medieval Texts, Papers and Monographs 35; 255 pages
