351 Georges, Pericles BARBARIAN ASIA AND THE GREEK EXPERIENCE From the Archaic Period to the Age of Xenophon
John Hopkins University Press 1994 0801847346 / 9780801847349 Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Very faint shelfwear to book. Faint soiling to DJ. Dustjacket is protected in mylar. ; Xx, 358pp. In Barbarian Asia and the Greek Experience Pericles Georges explores the ways ancient Greeks viewed and interacted with non-Greeks during the classical period. Through the works of Aeschylus, Herodotus, and Xenophon, Georges examines critical episodes in the formation of Greek ideas and attitudes concerning those foreigners of Asia with whom they came into close historical contact and against whom they defined themselves--especially the "barbarians" of Persia and Lydia. He focuses on the Greeks' intramural debates about their own identity--or identities--as people who shared a common language, religious tradition, and way of life, but who differed over issues of origin, custom, culture, and notions of the barbarian "other." ; 385 pages

374 Gorman, Vanessa B. MILETOS, THE ORNAMENT OF IONIA A History of the City to 400 B.C.E.
University of Michigan Press 2001 047211199X / 9780472111992 Hardcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Very light shelfwear to DJ else Fine. ; 320 pages; Situated on the southwest coast of modern Turkey, Miletos stood for centuries as one of the paramount cities in the Hellenic world, a gateway between the East and West. It became especially famous as the most prolific mother city in Greek history, sending out at least forty-five known primary and secondary settlements into the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea, while at home developing into an intellectual and artistic center and one of the birthplaces of Western science and philosophy. A history of Miletos is long overdue. Despite the significance of this city in antiquity and the important results of ongoing excavations there, the last full-scale discussion of Miletos was written in 1915. In Miletos, the Ornament of Ionia, Vanessa B. Gorman provides the first and only modern, integrated history of the city, collecting and scrutinizing sources about Miletos for the period stretching from the first signs of habitation until 400 B. C. E. This book reviews the archaeological evidence for the physical city, demonstrates the likelihood of both Minoan and Mycenaean settlements there, and substantiates the fact of the Persian destruction and refoundation of Miletos along orthogonal lines. With insight and diligence, Gorman surveys the cults known to have existed during this period; traces the political progress of the city through monarchy, oligarchy, tyranny, and democracy; and sketches the terms of its subjugation under the Persians and later the Athenians. Providing a detailed and up-to-date account of the development of one of the major urban centers of Asia Minor, Gorman's book will engage classicists, historians, and Near Eastern specialists.

Minor creasing to ffep. Else book is fine. DJ has minor shelfwear. ; Heraclides Ponticus (387 - 312 BCE) , also known as Heraklides, was a Greek philosopher who lived and died at Heraclea, now Eregli, Turkey. He has frequently been hailed as the originator of the heliocentric theory. Though this is now generally doubted, he did anticipate the thinking of later astronomers. Heraclides' father was Euthyphron, a wealthy nobleman who sent him to study at the Academy in Athens under its founder Plato and under his successor Speusippus, though he also studied with Aristotle. According to the Suda, Plato, on his departure for Sicily in 360 BCE, left his pupils in the charge of Heraclides. Speusippus, before his death in 339 BCE, had chosen Xenocrates as his successor but Xenocrates narrowly triumphed in an ensuing election against Heraclides and Menedemus. A punning on his name, dubbing him Heraclides "Pompicus, " suggests he may have been a rather vain and pompous man and the target of much ridicule. However, Heraclides seems to have been a versatile and prolific writer on philosophy, mathematics, music, grammar, physics, history and rhetoric, notwithstanding doubts about attribution of many of the works. It appears that he composed various works in dialogue form. The main source of this biographical welter is the collection by Diogenes Laërtius. His major distinction is that he realised, as the result of observation, that Venus and Mercury orbit the Sun as satellites. Some writers have seen this as evidence that he originated the heliocentric theory prior to Aristarchus of Samos and Nicolaus Copernicus. However, it is now generally believed that he was proposing an essentially geocentric model in which those planets orbit the Sun but the Sun, in turn, orbits the Earth along with the Moon, a theory later revived by Tycho Brahe. He was also the first to put forward the theory that the Earth rotates on its axis once a day. Of particular significance to historians is his statement that fourth century Rome was a Greek city. ; 178 pages; Sandpiper reprint.

376 Gower, Barry S. & Michael C. Stokes (Eds. ) SOCRATIC QUESTIONS New Essays on the Philosophy of Socrates and its Significance
Routledge 1992 0415069319 / 9780415069311 Hardcover Good+ in Good+ dust jacket 
Ex-library copy with usual stamps, call numbers and pocket. Dustjacket is protected in mylar and taped down to boards. ; Socrates is still an enigmatic figure of enormous importance in Western culture. This book introduces both some of Socrates' own problems and some of the problems about him. It seeks at the same time to advance new views, arguments and information on Socrates' mission, techniques, ethics and later reception. Composed of new essays by different scholars, some of them primarily Hellenists, some philosophers, it illustrates both the variety of Plato's literary portrayals of Socrates and the diversity of later and present-day approaches to him. "Socratic Questions" thus confronts the difficulties, philosophical and biographical, presented by dialogue such as "Protagoras and Crito" and by the "Apology of Socrates". From civil disobedience to ethics, this collection sets out to provide stimulating discussions of Socrates' life, thought and historical significance. ; 256 pages

Oxford Clarendon Press 1990 0198146949 / 9780198146940 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Dustjacket is protected in mylar. ; 1.02 x 8.5 x 5.67 Inches; 264 pages; This book is the first detailed study of the foundation, history, government, growth and decline of the cities founded in Syria by Seleukos I in 301BC shortly after the time of Alexander the Great. It throws new light on an important period in ancient history. In particular, Dr Grainger concentrates on the relationship between the kings and the cities in their kingdoms and reveals that former theories concerning such a relationship require drastic revision. Most importantly the relationship is shown to have been much more to the kings' advantage than previous discussions on Hellenistic states have supposed. He argues in fact that neither the kings nor the cities intended the cities to be autonomous or independent since they were far too reliant on royal support against the enmity of the surrounding population. Evidence for this can be seen in the actions of the cities on the collapse of the Seleukid dynasty in the first century BC; then they were forced to cast about for a new protector and eventually accepted Rome albeit reluctantly. Dr Grainger discusses the differing fate of the cities during this process when some failed altogether, most declined, and only one, Antioch, prospered.

395 Green, Peter HELLENISTIC HISTORY AND CULTURE
University of California Press 1996 0520203259 / 9780520203259 Softcover Very Good 
Top of spine is lightly bumped. Back corner of wraps is creased. ; Hellenistic Culture & Society , No 9; 0.9 x 8.8 x 6 Inches; 293 pages; In a 1988 conference, American and British scholars unexpectedly discovered that their ideas were converging in ways that formed a new picture of the variegated Hellenistic mosaic. That picture emerges in these essays and eloquently displays the breadth of modern interest in the Hellenistic Age. A distrust of all ideologies has altered old views of ancient political structures, and feminism has also changed earlier assessments. The current emphasis on multiculturalism has consciously deemphasized the Western, Greco-Roman tradition, and Nubians, Bactrians, and other subject peoples of the time are receiving attention in their own right, not just as recipients of Greco-Roman culture. History, like Herakleitos' river, never stands still. These essays share a collective sense of discovery and a sparking of new ideas--they are a welcome beginning to the reexploration of a fascinatingly complex age.

396 Green, Peter THE GRECO-PERSIAN WARS
University of California Press 1998 0520203135 / 9780520203136 Softcover Very Good+ with no dust jacket 
Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). Faint crease to spine. Else fine. ; The long and bitter struggle between the great Persian Empire and the fledgling Greek states reached its high point with the extraordinary Greek victory at Salamis in 480 B. C. The astonishing sea battle banished forever the specter of Persian invasion and occupation. Peter Green brilliantly retells this historic moment, evoking the whole dramatic sweep of events that the Persian offensive set in motion. The massive Greek victory, despite the Greeks' inferior numbers, opened the way for the historic evolution of the Greek states in a climate of creativity, independence, and democracy, one that provided a model and an inspiration for centuries to come. Green's accounts of both Persian and Greek strategies are clear and persuasive; equally convincing are his everyday details regarding the lives of soldiers, statesmen, and ordinary citizens. He has first-hand knowledge of the land and sea he describes, as well as full command of original sources and modern scholarship. The Greco-Persian Wars is a book that lovers of fine historical writing will greet with pleasure. ; 1.29 x 9.51 x 6.53 Inches; 344 pages
