In Athenian Society, Jennifer Gibbon explains the complex society of Athens in the 5th century BC through a number of important themes. She begins by looking at life int he city and life in the country, then moves on to such individual areas as citizens, slaves, entertainment, religion and the economy. A composite picture of Athenian society emerges from the different aspects. The book draws on a wide range of sources which are the starting point for all its analyses. This well-established series presents elected aspects of the ancient world in such a way as to help students gain an understanding of the attitudes of the Greeks and Romans, and to allow them to form their own judgement on the issues raised. Designed to meet the need for material suited to Classical Studies / Classical Civilization courses, it will be found particularly useful by candidates taking examinations. It is also intended as a helpful ancillary to the study of Greek and Latin at these levels. Much of the information is given by way of translated quotations from ancient authors. the books are illustrated throughout and diagrams and maps are linked closely to the text.
