Summary
"This book offers a comprehensive, and multi-faceted, analysis of the history and significance of the Athenian Empire. It starts by exploring possible answers to the crucial questions of the origins and growth of the empire. Subsequent sections deal with the institutions and regulations of empire, and the mechanisms by which it was controlled; the costs and benefits of imperialism (for both rulers and ruled); and the ideological, cultural, and artistic aspects of Athenian power." "The articles collected here are among the most influential studies in the field, written by the foremost scholars of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. They engage within the full range of evidence available to the historian of the Athenian Empire - literary, epigraphic, archaeological and art-historical - and offer a compelling demonstration of the range of approaches, and conclusions, for which that evidence allows." "The book includes a chronology and a guide to further reading. All passages of ancient Greek are translated and difficult terms are explained. One article has been translated and is available in English for the first time."--BOOK JACKET
