About this product
- DescriptionIn this, the first comprehensive one-volume survey of the ecomies of classical antiquity, twenty-eight chapters summarise the current state of scholarship in their specialised fields and sketch new directions for research. The approach taken is both thematic, with chapters on the underlying determinants of ecomic performance, and chrological, with coverage of the whole of the Greek and Roman worlds extending from the Aegean Bronze Age to Late Antiquity. The contributors move beyond the substantivist-formalist debates that dominated twentieth-century scholarship and display a new interest in ecomic growth in antiquity. New methods for measuring ecomic development are explored, often combining textual and archaeological data that have previously been treated separately. Fully accessible to n-specialist, the volume represents a major advance in our understanding of the ecomic expansion that made the civilisation of the classical Mediterranean world possible.
