War and society in the Roman world by John Rich( )

30 editions published between 1992 and 2020 in English and held by 2,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The impact of war on ancient society is the subject of this book and the companion volume, War and Society in the Greek World. Earlier studies of ancient warfare have concentrated on political causes, tactics, strategy and military organisation. In these volumes warfare is viewed rather as a species of social action, affecting and affected by social conditions and ideologies, and having social, economic and cultural consequences. The central theme of this volume is the shifting relationship between warfare and the Roman citizen body. The dominant role of war in Roman life under the Republic is examined, together with the related themes of Roman expansion and its consequences for both the Romans and those they conquered. Under the Principate expansion largely stopped and the inhabitants of the empire enjoyed the Roman peace protected by a professional army. A number of chapters focus on these changes, explaining how they came about, analysing their effect on attitudes to war and probing the extent to which the peace was a reality. The Late Empire is studied in the final chapters, which document the rise of warlords and, in the west, the final disappearance of the Roman army. This volume will be of great interest to all those concerned with Roman history, or more generally with the relationship between warfare and historical societies

War and society in the Greek world by John Rich( )

31 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 2,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The role of warfare is central to our understanding of the ancient Greek world. In this book and the companion work, War and Society in the Roman World, the wider social context of war is explored. This volume examines its impact on Greek society from Homeric times to the age of Alexander and his successors and discusses the significance of the causes and profits of war, the links between war, piracy and slavery, and trade, and the ideology of warfare in literature and sculpture."- COPAC
The Cambridge dictionary of classical civilization by Graham Shipley( Book )

35 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Cambridge Dictionary of Classical Civilization provides an authoritative survey of the classical world, combining the traditional strengths of classical subjects with new approaches examining the social and cultural features of the ancient Greek and Roman world. Ranging in time from post-Bronze Age Greece to the later Roman Empire, it looks not only at ancient Greece and Rome, but discusses those cultures with which Greeks and Romans exchanged information and culture (e.g. Phoenicians, Celts and Jews) and those remote peoples with whom they were in contact (e.g. Persia, China and India). It paints a new picture of ancient life, exploring material realities such as dress and technology. It emphasizes the transmission of classical learning and explores our debts to Greece and Rome. Highly illustrated, with hundreds of entries by leading scholars, this Dictionary is a superb reference work and definitive companion for anyone with an interest in the ancient world."--Jacket
The Greek world after Alexander, 323-30 B.C. by Graham Shipley( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this comprehensive and well-documented book, Graham Shipley integrates the diverse aspects of politics, society and culture to create a coherent and thorough survey of the Hellenistic world. The Greek World after Alexander examines social changes in the cities of the Greek world and in the kingdoms that succeeded Alexander's empire. The investigation is set in the context of an up-to-date appraisal of the momentous military and political changes that took place after Alexander's reign. Graham Shipley's ground-breaking study also considers developments in literature, religion, philosophy, and science, establishing whether they departed radically from Classical Greek culture or developed continuously from it. In addition, he explores the divisions in Hellenistic culture separating an educated élite from the general population which was more mobile than before but perhaps less involved in city politics. The Greek World after Alexander offers an indispensable introduction to the Hellenistic world, and provides the reader with extensive translated source material and references for further study. It will be invaluable to students, teachers and researchers alike."--Publisher's description

The Greek World after Alexander : 323-30 BC by Graham Shipley( Book )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Greek World After Alexander 323-30 BC examines social changes in the old and new cities of the Greek world and in the new post-Alexandrian kingdoms. An appraisal of the momentous military and political changes after the era of Alexander, this book considers developments in literature, religion, philosophy, and science, and establishes how far they are presented as radical departures from the culture of Classical Greece or were continuous developments from it. Graham Shipley explores the culture of the Hellenistic world in the context of the social divisions between an educated elite and a general population at once more mobile and less involved in the political life of the Greek city
The early Hellenistic Peloponnese : politics, economies, and networks 338-197 BC by Graham Shipley( Book )

13 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using all available evidence - literary, epigraphic, numismatic, and archaeological - this study offers a new analysis of the early Hellenistic Peloponnese. The conventional picture of the Macedonian kings as oppressors, and of the Peloponnese as ruined by warfare and tyranny, must be revised. The kings did not suppress freedom or exploit the peninsula economically, but generally presented themselves as patrons of Greek identity. Most of the regimes characterised as 'tyrannies' were probably, in reality, civic governorships, and the Macedonians did not seek to overturn tradition or build a new imperial order. Contrary to previous analyses, the evidence of field survey and architectural remains points to an active, even thriving civic culture and a healthy trading economy under elite patronage. Despite the rise of federalism, particularly in the form of the Achaean league, regional identity was never as strong as loyalty to one's city-state (polis)
