Byron’s War Romantic Rebellion, Greek Revolution Roderick Beaton King’s College London

The story of Lord Byron’s involvement with Greece and the Greek War of Independence has often been told, but this study, by a leading scholar, throws new light on the impact of Greece on British Romanticism, on Byron’s relationship with Greece, and on the making of the modern Greek state. ‘Byron’s War is a superb portrait of a complex personality. Drawing upon new archival research into the bitter civil wars between rival revolutionary factions, Beaton has constructed a gripping narrative of Byron’s selftransformation from Philhellene to a pragmatic and courageous politicker.

‘The classical work Botanical Latin by W. T. Stearn has been a standard reference work for nearly 50 years, but it is not a starting point for those without prior knowledge of Latin. The new book by Emma Short and Alex George is derived from classes given separately by both authors, and the informal style is reflected in the very readable text. As one reads it, one can almost hear the careful explanations being given to the classes. The past experience of the authors – one in working on major taxonomic databases at Kew and the other as a leading figure in Australian botany including being editor of the Flora of Australia – ensures a very high pedigree for the book. It will stand alongside Stearn’s work as an essential tool for many botanists for years to come.’

Antigone, Interrupted Bonnie Honig Northwestern University, Illinois

Antigone, Interrupted explores the intertwined history of law, politics, gender and humanism through a new reading of Sophocles’ classical tragedy. Studying the play in its fifth-century and modern contexts, Bonnie Honig argues for an Antigone committed not just to dissidence but to a positive politics of counter-sovereignty and solidarity. ‘Honig’s sweeping consideration of how the ‘Antigone’ is read and misread offers us a new way to approach the pauses, the ellipses, and the frank interruptions that punctuate this classic text. We have all struggled so hard to make the words mean in this or that way that we have perhaps forgotten the more dramatic features of the text in which relationships rupture, words trail off, and events still language. This book offers a trenchant analysis of sovereignty, belonging, and freedom through a perspective at once dramatic, literary, and political. Honig’s sustained engagement with contemporary criticism shows how important the figure and text of Antigone is for any effort to think about the risks and the necessity of contestatory democratic culture.’ Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley 2013 228 x 152 mm 338pp 978-1-107-03697-0 Hardback US$85.00 978-1-107-66815-7 Paperback US$29.99 For all formats available, see

KEY REFERENCE

The Annals of Tacitus: Book 11 Edited by S. J. V. Malloch University of Nottingham

Book 11, the first of the later books of the Annals to survive, narrates two years in the reign of Claudius, AD 47–8. While Claudius is busy with the duties of his censorship, his wife Messalina is having a very public love affair with the young aristocrat Silius that eventually ruins her. In a book that also treats German, eastern, and other Roman internal affairs, a third of the surviving narrative is devoted to the destruction of Messalina. Here we encounter the classic portrayal of a Claudius ignorant and manipulated by those around him in an extended narrative that shows Tacitus at his dramatic and cynical best. This edition of Book 11, the first scholarly one in English in over a hundred years, contains a full introduction, a newlyedited Latin text with apparatus, and a comprehensive commentary that illuminates historical, historiographical, textual, linguistic, and literary issues that arise from the narrative.

It provides a comprehensive study of major monuments, including exciting new material that has been discovered in recent years and has transformed the field. It also offers a critical overview of scholarly debates and controversies on aspects of style, iconography, technique and cultural context. This volume provides an up-to-date and muchneeded overview of the monuments that are now known and of the ideas that have been generated about them. Advance praise: ‘This richly illustrated, up-to-date overview is superbly written by a cast of stars. Filled with recent discoveries, there is something new of importance for every scholar and student of ancient Mediterranean painting.’

In this book, first published in 2008, Kousser builds on recent scholarship to offer a unique analysis of Hellenistic and Roman sculptures. Unlike other books, she focuses on the reception rather than the creation of works of art, giving readings of important monuments integrating their analysis with less wellstudied ones such as German provincial relics. ‘Kousser demonstrates how careful iconographic analysis of the material can be insightful and help us understand better the importance of sculpture in specific contexts.’ Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2014 247 x 187 mm 226pp 978-1-107-69970-0 Paperback c. US$34.99 Publication January 2014 Also available 978-0-521-87782-4 Hardback US$107.00 For all formats available, see

The Art of Building in the Classical World Vision, Craftsmanship, and Linear Perspective in Greek and Roman Architecture John R. Senseney University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

This book examines the application of drawing in the design process of classical architecture, exploring how the tools and techniques of drawing developed for architecture subsequently shaped theories of vision and representations of the universe in science and philosophy. ‘This is an ambitious book, carefully edited and profusely illustrated. It is hard not to be stirred by the questions [Senseney] raises: what were the origins of Greek and Roman architectural drawings? How did drawings determine the actual outcome of a building and a city? And, did architectural drawings affect aspects of intellectual life beyond architecture?’ Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2014 253 x 177 mm 300pp 95 b/w illus.   978-1-107-65125-8 Paperback US$29.99 Publication January 2014 Also available 978-1-107-00235-7 Hardback US$98.00 For all formats available, see

Mehmet-Ali Ataç Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania

The relief slabs that decorated the palaces of the Neo-Assyrian Empire, which emphasized military conquest and royal prowess, have traditionally been understood as statements of imperial propaganda that glorified the Assyrian king. Here, Mehmet-Ali Ataç argues that the reliefs hold a deeper meaning that was addressed primarily to an internal audience composed of court scholars and master craftsmen. ‘There is much in this book that ancient and art historians will find of interest. The method of analyzing Assyrian art in the light of the wide body of textual sources and comparative mythology is most welcome.’ Bryn Mawr Classical Review

The Roman Forum was in many ways the heart of the Roman Empire. Today, the Forum exists in a fragmentary state, having been destroyed and plundered by barbarians, aristocrats, citizens and priests over the past two millennia. Enough remains, however, for archaeologists to reconstruct its spectacular buildings and monuments. This richly illustrated volume provides an architectural history of the central section of the Roman Forum during the Empire (31 BCE–476 CE), from the Temple of Julius Caesar to the monuments on the slope of the Capitoline hill.

Classical archaeology / Ancient history Mediterranean Islands, Fragile Communities and Persistent Landscapes Antikythera in Long-Term Perspective Andrew Bevan Institute of Archaeology, University College London

and James Conolly Trent University, Peterborough, Ontario

Builds upon a detailed, interdisciplinary program of archaeological fieldwork, archival research and scientific analysis to consider the long-term human history of Antikythera, a small Greek island that lies among key routes of maritime passage. The authors consider patterns of the island’s human settlement, land use, and interaction with the wider world and use this case study as a means for offering more general observations. ‘A gem of an archaeological history for a very small island – a book that builds impressively on accomplishments of the past four decades in Greek regional studies, while exploring the generally complex relationships between landscapes and the human populations that reside in them.’

A Social Archaeology of Households in Neolithic Greece An Anthropological Approach Stella G. Souvatzi

This volume, first published in 2008, addresses the household as a process and as a conceptual and analytical means through which we can interpret social organization. Using detailed case studies from Neolithic Greece and drawing on contemporary social theory and thought, Souvatzi examines how the household is defined socially, culturally, and historically. ‘This is a useful book that adds much to our current understandings of the household. It will be of interest to those studying the Neolithic and to those interested in the variable nature of housing and households more generally.’ Bryn Mawr Classical Review Cambridge Studies in Archaeology

Warfare was the single biggest preoccupation of historians in antiquity. In recent decades fresh textual interpretations, numerous new archaeological discoveries and a much broader analytical focus emphasising social, economic, political and cultural approaches have transformed our understanding of ancient warfare. This two-volume History reflects these developments and provides a systematic account, written by a distinguished cast of contributors, of the various themes underlying the warfare of the Greek world from Archaic Greece to the Arab conquests of the seventh century AD. For each broad period developments in troop-types, equipment, strategy and tactics are discussed. These are placed in the broader context of developments in international relations and the relationship of warfare to both the state and wider society. Numerous illustrations, a glossary and chronology, and information about the authors mentioned supplement the text. This will become the primary reference work for specialists and non-specialists alike. ‘These volumes are sure to be the standard reference on classical military history in the Englishspeaking world for some time … The quality of the chapters and the sheer readability of the work is very high and the editors and authors are to be congratulated for the production of these very useful volumes.’ Nuncius: Journal of the History of Science

The study of ancient law has blossomed in recent years. In English alone there have been dozens of studies devoted to classical Greek and Roman law, to the Roman legal codes, and to the legal traditions of the ancient Near East among many other topics. Legal documents written on papyrus began to be published in some abundance by the end of the nineteenth century; but even after substantial publication history, legal papyri have not received due attention from legal historians. This book blends the two usually distinct juristic scholarly traditions, classical and Egyptological, into a coherent presentation of the legal documents from Egypt from the Ptolemaic to the late Byzantine periods, all translated and accompanied by expert commentary. The volume will serve as an introduction to the rich legal sources from Egypt in the later phases of its ancient history as well as a tool to compare legal documents from other cultures.

The Cambridge History of the Byzantine Empire c.500–1492 Edited by Jonathan Shepard University of Cambridge

Byzantium lasted a thousand years, ruled to the end by self-styled ‘emperors of the Romans’. It underwent kaleidoscopic territorial and structural changes, yet recovered repeatedly from disaster: even after the near-impregnable Constantinople fell in 1204, variant forms of the empire reconstituted themselves. The Cambridge History of the Byzantine Empire tells the story, tracing political and military events, religious controversies and economic change. It offers clear, authoritative chapters on the main events and periods, with more detailed chapters on particular outlying regions, neighbouring powers or aspects of Byzantium. With aids such as a glossary, an alternative place-name table and references to English translations of sources, it will be valuable as an introduction. However, it also offers stimulating new approaches and important new findings, making it essential reading for postgraduates and for specialists.

Historians of antiquity and others interested in youth, adolescence or family life in the past have debated whether youth in the Roman Empire differed from that of our time. This book examines the lives of Roman boys and girls and explores the possible existence of a separate youth culture.

This book is a study of the woman-andchild motif – known as the kourotrophos – as it appeared in the Bronze Age eastern Mediterranean.

Remembering Constantine at the Milvian Bridge Raymond Van Dam University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Throughout late antiquity and the medieval period, memories of Constantine’s victory in 312 at the battle of the Milvian Bridge served as a powerful paradigm for understanding rulership in a Christian society. This book examines the creation and dissemination of legends about that battle and its significance.

This book describes ten different government archives of cuneiform tablets from Assyria, using them to analyse the social and economic character of the Middle Assyrian state, as well as the roles and practices of writing.

‘Van Dam uses contemporary memory theory to arrive at a new interpretation of an age-old problem. Constantine’s conversion and victory are explored through a polyptych of interpretive approaches that portray this perennially important figure in a new light.’

Rome’s World The Peutinger Map Reconsidered Richard J. A. Talbert University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

The Peutinger Map is the only map of the Roman world to come down to us from antiquity. Richard Talbert provides a long-overdue reinterpretation and appreciation of the map as a masterpiece of both mapmaking and imperial Roman ideology, enabling readers to engage with it more closely than ever before. ‘The great strength of Talbert’s book is that it argues – at times almost despite itself – for an imaginative non-cartographical viewing of the Peutinger Table.’ Times Literary Supplement 2014 253 x 177 mm 376pp 33 b/w illus.  1 table   978-1-107-68575-8 Paperback c. US$32.99 Publication January 2014 Also available 978-0-521-76480-3 Hardback US$101.00

An Ancient Commentary on the Book of Revelation A Critical Edition of the Scholia in Apocalypsin Edited and translated by P. Tzamalikos Aristotle University, Thessaloniki

This is a new critical edition, with translation and commentary, of the Scholia in Apocalypsin, which were falsely attributed to Origen a century ago. They include extensive sections from Didymus the Blind’s lost Commentary on the Apocalypse (fourth century) and therefore counter the current belief that Oecumenius’ commentary (sixth century) was the most ancient. Professor Tzamalikos argues that their author was in fact Cassian the Sabaite, an erudite monk and abbot at the monastery of Sabas, the Great Laura, in Palestine. He was different from the alleged Latin author John Cassian, placed a century or so before the real Cassian. The Scholia attest to the tension between the imperial Christian orthodoxy of the sixth century and certain monastic circles, who drew freely on Hellenic ideas and on alleged ‘heretics’. They show that, during that period, Hellenism was a vigorous force inspiring not only pagan intellectuals, but also influential Christian quarters. 2013 276 x 219 mm 484pp 978-1-107-02694-0 Hardback

Themistius, Julian, and Greek Political Theory under Rome Texts, Translations, and Studies of Four Key Works Simon Swain

The Hellenistic West Rethinking the Ancient Mediterranean Edited by Jonathan R. W. Prag University of Oxford

University of Warwick

and Josephine Crawley Quinn

Power, government, the age-old struggle between rulers and ruled – these are the topics of the extraordinary exchange between the leading political figure of fourth-century Constantinople, Themistius, and the stripling prince, Julian. This volume provides a critical edition and translation of four texts illustrating the relation of kings and courtiers.

University of Oxford

Fourteen historians and archaeologists come together to tackle the role of the western Mediterranean in what is conventionally known as ‘Hellenistic’ history. Their essays challenge the centrality of the East in the ‘Hellenistic World’, the focus on Rome in accounts of the West, and the concept of the ‘Hellenistic’ itself.

Drawing on these diverse sources, William H. Peck illuminates the culture of the ancient Egyptians from the standpoint of the basic materials they employed to make life possible and perhaps even enjoyable. ‘Peck’s work is a badly needed up-todate reference of daily life in ancient Egypt. The volume is sure to be welcomed by Egyptologists, classicists, anthropologists, and students of comparative cultures.

The Anonymous Sayings of the Desert Fathers A Select Edition and Complete English Translation Edited and translated by John Wortley University of Manitoba, Canada

The Tales and Sayings of the Desert Fathers (Apophthegmata Patrum) are a key source of evidence for the practice and theory respectively of eremitic monasticism, a significant phenomenon within the early history of Christianity. The publication of this book finally ensures the availability of all three major collections which constitute the work, edited and translated into English. Richer in Tales than the ‘Alphabetic’ collection to which this is an appendix (both to be dated c.AD 500), the ‘Anonymous’ collection presented in this volume furnishes almost as much material for the study of the late antique world from which the monk sought to escape as it does for the monastic endeavour itself. More material continued to be added well into the seventh century and so the spread and gradual evolution of monasticism are illustrated here over a period of about two and a half centuries. 2013 228 x 152 mm 658pp 978-0-521-50988-6 Hardback

A History of Pythagoreanism

Raoul Mortley Bond University, Queensland

Edited by Carl A. Huffman DePauw University, Indiana

This is a comprehensive, authoritative and innovative account of Pythagoras and Pythagoreanism, one of the most enigmatic and influential philosophies in the West. In twenty-one chapters covering a timespan from the sixth century BC to the seventeenth century AD, leading scholars construct a number of different images of Pythagoras and his community, assessing current scholarship and offering new answers to central problems. Chapters are devoted to the early Pythagoreans, and the full breadth of Pythagorean thought is explored including politics, religion, music theory, science, mathematics and magic. Separate chapters consider Pythagoreanism in Plato, Aristotle, the Peripatetics and the later Academic tradition, while others describe Pythagoreanism in the historical tradition, in Rome and in the pseudoPythagorean writings. The three great lives of Pythagoras by Diogenes Laertius, Porphyry and Iamblichus are also discussed in detail, as is the significance of Pythagoras for the Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Galen: Psychological Writings Avoiding Distress, Character Traits, The Diagnosis and Treatment of the Affections and Errors Peculiar to Each Person’s Soul, The Capacities of the Soul Depend on the Mixtures of the Body Edited by P. N. Singer University of Newcastle upon Tyne

With contributions by Daniel Davies University of Cambridge

and Vivian Nutton University College London

All Galen’s surviving shorter works on psychology and ethics – including the recently discovered Avoiding Distress, and the neglected Character Traits, extant only in Arabic – are here presented in one volume in a new English translation, with substantial introductions and notes and extensive glossaries. Original and penetrating analyses are provided of the psychological and philosophical thought, both of the above and of two absolutely central works of Galenic philosophy, Affections and Errors and The Capacities of the Soul, by some of the foremost experts in the field. Each treatise has also been subjected to fresh textual study, taking account of the latest scholarly developments, and is presented with accompanying textual discussions, adding greatly to the value and accuracy of the work without detracting from its accessibility to a wider readership. The volume thus makes a major contribution to the understanding of the ancient world’s most prominent doctorphilosopher in his intellectual context. Contributors: P. N.

Proclus: Commentary on Plato’s Timaeus Volume 5: Book 4 Edited and translated by Dirk Baltzly

Byzantine studies

University of Tasmania

Proclus’ commentary on Plato’s dialogue Timaeus is arguably the most important commentary on a text of Plato, offering unparalleled insights into eight centuries of Platonic interpretation. It has had an enormous influence on subsequent Plato scholarship. This edition offers the first new English translation of the work for nearly two centuries, building on significant recent advances in scholarship on Neoplatonic commentators. It provides an invaluable record of early interpretations of Plato’s dialogue, while also presenting Proclus’ own views on the meaning and significance of Platonic philosophy. The present volume, the fifth in the edition, presents Proclus’ commentary on the Timaeus, dealing with Proclus’ account of static and flowing time; we see Proclus situating Plato’s account of the motions of the stars and planets in relation to the astronomical theories of his day. The volume includes a substantial introduction, as well as notes that will shed new light on the text. Proclus: Commentary on Plato’s Timaeus

Byzantium in the Iconoclast Era, c.680–850 A History Leslie Brubaker University of Birmingham

and John Haldon Princeton University, New Jersey

Iconoclasm, the debate about the legitimacy of religious art that began in Byzantium around 720 and continued for nearly one hundred and twenty years, has long held a firm grip on the historical imagination. This is the first book in English for over fifty years to survey this most elusive and fascinating period in medieval history. It is also the first book in any language to combine the expertise of two authors who are specialists in the written, archaeological and visual evidence from this period, a combination of particular importance to the iconoclasm debate. The authors have worked together to provide a comprehensive overview of the visual, written and other materials that together help clarify the complex issues of iconoclasm in Byzantium. In doing so they challenge many traditional assumptions about iconoclasm and set the period firmly in its broader political, cultural and social-economic context. ‘This is the most important book on Byzantium to appear in my lifetime. The authors admirably fulfil their stated intention to discuss political recovery and institutional reshaping, the final stages in the evolution of eastern Orthodox dogma, the emergence of a new political and social elite, the transformation of urban life and also urban-rural relations, and the generation of a new ‘medieval’ perspective on the past.’ Thomas F.

This book positions medieval Byzantine rhetorical rhythm at the intersection of prose and poetry and offers an analysis of its role in argumentation and persuasion. It also highlights littleknown rhetorical theory and seeks to recover the importance of rhythm in rhetorical education in antiquity and the medieval period, and for rhetoric in general.

The Body in History Europe from the Palaeolithic to the Future Edited by John Robb University of Cambridge

and Oliver J. T. Harris University of Leicester

This book is a long-term history of how the human body has been understood in Europe from the Palaeolithic to the present day. Drawing on the work of a team of experts, the authors examine how the body has been treated in life, art and death, and what this tells us about who we are today and who we have been in the past. ‘This book is amazing. Robb and Harris take us on a grand tour of the human body, tracing its diverse forms and attachments over a span of 50,000 years. Rarely do so many fascinating ideas come together in one place. For scholars who study the body in Africa, Asia, or the New World, the book offers a steady stream of comparative insights. As an experiment in multiscalar analysis, The Body in History is a tantalizing, indispensable model for future work.’

From Plato to Žižek Julian Young

Written in an accessible style, this is a full survey of the philosophy of tragedy from antiquity to the present. From Aristotle to Žižek, philosophers have asked: why, notwithstanding its distressing content, do we value tragedy? Some point to a certain pleasure that results from tragedy, others to the knowledge we gain from tragedy – of psychology, ethics, freedom or immortality. 2013 228 x 152 mm 294pp 978-1-107-02505-9 Hardback US$85.00 978-1-107-62196-1 Paperback US$29.99 For all formats available, see
