9780198152606: Families in Classical and Hellenistic Greece: Representations and Realities

This highly original and authoritative account of the Greek family supersedes the only existing study in English by W. K. Lacey (published in 1968) and provides the first comprehensive survey of the subject. Taking account of a mass of literary, inscriptional, archaeological, anthropological, and art-historical evidence, some of which has only been made recently available, Sarah Pomeroy provides an excellent reference for one of the key aspects of Greek social history.
