Another excellent book in the "Companion series" from Blackwell. Aside from the high price (still far lower than the hardback version ), this multi-authored work that focuses on the beginnings and flowering of the so-called "Archaic Period" of Greek civilization is well worth it. Anyone interested in the culture of Ancient Greece, whether it be scholar or layman, is well advised to own a copy of this book or consult it as needed. There is such a variety of material that one can pick and choose what one wishes to read, leaving out the more esoteric and difficult sections. I especially enjoyed the introductory material which gives us a more appropriate approach to the subject matter at hand. Let us not forget that the term "Archaic" is a modern one and, as applied to Ancient Greece, should be viewed from the definitional standpoint of "beginnings" or "formative phase" and absolutely NOT thought of as "antiquated" or "outmoded". Terminology is a convenience, not an absolute. Unfortunately, the word "Archaic" all too often suffers by comparison to the word "Classical". This definitely should not be the case when approaching the civilization of Ancient Greece when examining its "foundations". This book is a virtual compendium of every aspect of Archaic Greek culture. Divided into four major Parts containing 31 sub-divisions, A Companion to Archaic Greece contains focused essays on whole centuries, particular places, significant individuals, interaction between Greeks and other peoples, gender, literacy, intellectual achievement, warfare, economic matters, art & architecture, the "Dark Age", and so on, and so forth.
There is a veritable smorgasbord of topics to consider, within the framework of a 750 page book replete with extensive notes, bibliography, and index.
