Landscapes Gender and Ritual Space
The division of land and consolidation of territory that created the Greek polis also divided sacred from productive space, sharpened distinctions between purity and pollution, and created a ritual system premised on gender difference. Regional sanctuaries ameliorated competition between city-states, publicized the results of competitive rituals for males, and encouraged judicial alternatives to violence. Female ritual efforts, focused on reproduction and the health of the family, are less visible, but, as this provocative study shows, no less significant. Taking a fresh look at the epigraphical evidence for Greek ritual practice in the context of recent studies of landscape and political organization, Susan Guettel Cole illuminates the profoundly gendered nature of Greek cult practice and explains the connections between female rituals and the integrity of the community. In a rich integration of ancient sources and current theory, Cole brings together the complex evidence for Greek ritual practice. She discusses relevant medical and philosophical theories about the female body; considers Greek ideas about purity, pollution, and ritual purification; and examines the cult of Artemis in detail. Her nuanced study demonstrates the social contribution of women's rituals to the sustenance of the polis and the identity of its people.
War and Democracy
A comparison of the cultural and political/institutional dimensions of war's impact on Greece during the Peloponnesian War, and the United States and the two Koreas, North and South, during the Korean War. It demonstrates the many underlying similarities between the two wars.
The Hunt in Ancient Greece
Hunting and its imagery continued to play a significant role in archaic and classical Greece long after hunting had ceased being a necessity for survival in everyday life. Drawing on vase paintings, sculpture, inscriptions, and other literary evidence, Judith Barringer reexamines the theme of the hunt and shows how the tradition it depicts helped maintain the dominance of the ruling social groups. Along with athletics and battle, hunting was a defining activity of the masculine aristocracy and was crucial to the efforts of the Athenian elite to control the social agenda, even as their political power declined. The Hunt in Ancient Greece examines descriptions of hunting in initiation rituals as well as the ideals of masculinity and adulthood such rites of passage promoted. Barringer argues that depictions of the hunt in literature and art also served as striking metaphors for the intricacies of courtship, shedding light on sexuality and gender roles. Through an exploration of various representations of the hunt, Barringer provides extraordinary insight into Athenian society. -- Andrew Stewart, University of California, Berkeley
La s plica de Eris
La ubicuidad del fenómeno de la guerra en el mundo antiguo ha llevado a los historiadores a percibir el mundo griego clásico como un espacio anárquico de violencia desmedida y de falta de controles. A partir de una nueva lectura e interpretación de los testimonios documentales de la época, este trabajo se propone replantear la perspectiva de análisis tradicional, proyectando un examen jurídico del problema para sugerir que el mundo helénico de los siglos V y IV a. C. ya contaba con verdaderas reglas de derecho aplicables a los conflictos armados que muchas veces contrastaban con las prácticas denunciadas. Desde un análisis interdisciplinario que hace confluir la reflexión jurídica con los aportes de la filología, la historia, la religión y la antropología, la obra consigna que la presencia de ritualismos bélicos, la permanente justificación de las hostilidades y la existencia de un “derecho común” de las ciudades griegas –tal como se revelan en las fuentes– permiten pensar en un antecedente discursivo de la performance de los Estados modernos. Se sugiere así la presencia de una base consuetudinaria arcaica que podría servir de origen a algunas normas jurídicas actuales de derecho internacional en materia de ius ad bellum y ius in bello. Al identificar las narrativas que se contraponen, desde la Guerra del Peloponeso hasta hoy, se trata de develar líneas de continuidad que dejan entrever la ambivalencia propia de todo recurso a la fuerza –y de toda referencia a su empleo– en el plano interestatal.

Die Wirkung der G tter
The modern viewer is familiar with winged human figures in pictures, above all angels. Winged figures are also frequent on Greek vases. However, here, they must be seen in a very different cultural and, above all, religious context. What is their meaning in these contexts, and what does this tell us about how the pictures are to be understood overall? By trying to find answers to these questions, the books tells us a great deal about how the ancient Greeks saw the world and their role in it, and how they understood their relationship with the gods.
Warfare and Agriculture in Classical Greece Revised edition
The ancient Greeks were for the most part a rural, not an urban, society. And for much of the Classical period, war was more common than peace. Almost all accounts of ancient history assume that farming and fighting were critical events in the lives of the citizenry. Yet never before have we had a comprehensive modern study of the relationship between agriculture and warfare in the Greek world. In this completely revised edition of Warfare and Agriculture in Classical Greece, Victor Davis Hanson provides a systematic review of Greek agriculture and warfare and describes the relationship between these two important aspects of life in ancient communities. With careful attention to agronomic as well as military details, this well-written, thoroughly researched study reveals the remarkable resilience of those farmland communities. In the past, scholars have assumed that the agricultural infrastructure of ancient society was often ruined by attack, as, for example, Athens was relegated to poverty in the aftermath of the Persian and later Peloponnesian invasions. Hanson's study shows, however, that in reality attacks on agriculture rarely resulted in famines or permanent agrarian depression. Trees and vines are hard to destroy, and grainfields are only briefly vulnerable to torching. In addition, ancient armies were rather inefficient systematic ravagers and instead used other tactics, such as occupying their enemies' farms to incite infantry battle. Warfare and Agriculture in Classical Greece suggests that for all ancient societies, rural depression and desolation came about from more subtle phenomena—taxes, changes in political and social structure, and new cultural values—rather than from destructive warfare.
