              Athens and Sparta is an essential textbook for the study of Greek history. Providing a comprehensive account of the two key Greek powers in the years after 478 BC, it charts the rise of Athens from city-state to empire after the devastation of the Persian Wars, and the increasing... tensions with their rivals, Sparta, culminating in the Peloponnesian Wars. As well as the political history of the period, it also offers an insight into the radically different political systems of these two superpowers, and explores aspects of social history such as Athenian democracy, life in Sparta, and the lives of Athenian women. More than this though, it encourages students to develop their critical skills, guiding them in how to think about history, demonstrating in a lucid way the techniques used in interpreting the ancient sources. In this new third edition, Anton Powell includes discussion of the latest scholarship on this crucial period in Greek history. Its bibliography has been renewed, and for the first time it includes numerous photographs of Greek sites and archaeological objects discussed in the text. Written in an accessible style and covering the key events of the period - the rise to power of Athens, the unusual Spartan state, and their rivalry and eventual clash in all out war - this is an invaluable tool for students of the history of Greece in the fifth century BC.

              Xenophon and Sparta (Hardback)

              Edited by Powell, Anton; Richer, Nicolas

              The writing of Spartan history for long involved gliding - sometimes seamlessly - between the evidence of very different ancient sources. This book examines each of the principal sources and its relationship with classical Sparta.

              Coins of the Roman Revolution (49 BC - AD 14): Evidence Without Hindsight (Hardback)

              Edited by Powell, Anton; Burnett, Andrew

              The long revolutionary age, which culminated in the autocracy of Octavian-Augustus, is one of Roman history's most richly documented periods - and most misrepresented.

              This collection, first published in 1989, investigates aspects of the Spartan polity which have often been overlooked or underestimated. Viewed at least until the Renaissance as the epitome of classical virtues, Sparta has in the last two centuries suffered a rapid decline in rep...utation among liberal-minded scholars, repelled by many of the repressive measures employed by this remarkably successful city-state, which for centuries dominated mainland Greece. Recent studies have emphasised permanent problems which beset Sparta: the small size of her citizen body, the tensions between noble Spartiates and commoners, the ambiguous role of women, and, of course, the helots. Classical Sparta: Techniques Behind Her Success seeks to present this intriguing polis by exploring how its perennial difficulties were, for so long, ingeniously overcome. Specifically, the essays in this volume address themselves to broadly ideological issues, demonstrating how skilful propaganda and deception contributed significantly to the longevity of the Spartan state.

              Thucydides and Sparta (Hardback)

              Edited by Powell, Anton; Debnar, Paula

              Scholars may agree: on the subject of secretive Sparta, a state richly productive of myth and wishful thinking, Thucydides stands supreme as a source.
