"Jonathan Hall has written a stimulating new history of Archaic Greece ... The book is very well written, with a very helpful glossary of literary sources and a useful index; it does not pre-suppose any knowledge of the evidence or methods ... Hall explores the general problems that a historian faces in practising history, providing an excellent introduction to the issues ... Fundamentally, Hall's book stresses the need to rethink the concept of historical change." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)
"Very attractive physical appearance … an extensive bibliography and index. Hall’s style is clear and crisp … .The book is to be recommended." (Canadian Journal of History)"A trenchant discussion of the most recent issues and scholarship associated with the Archaic Age, based on an impressive command of archaeological data and textual sources. Jonathan Hall's study paints a vivid picture of the forces that shaped the institutions of Archaic Greece."
