By Michel Austin, Pierre Vidal-Naquet
Una visión razonada de los aspectos económicos y sociales de l. a. Grecia antigua, desde el mundo homérico hasta los tiempos de Alejandro, este libro plantea una cuestión básica para los angeles historia de los angeles Antigüedad y particularmente atractiva en el campo de las culturas clásicas: ¿existe un punto de contacto entre los modernos conceptos de economía y sociedad, por una parte, y l. a. realidad del mundo antiguo, por otra? Los autores aclaran este tema precisando cuál period l. a. auténtica situación en Grecia, qué espacio concedían los griegos a los problemas económicos y sociales, qué formas revestían entre ellos y cuáles fueron las soluciones que imaginaron o que llegaron a darles en l. a. práctica. Y para ello recurren a un expediente olvidado con demasiada frecuencia, a saber, el contacto directo con las fuentes, ofreciendo una excelente selección de textos literarios y epigráficos, cuidadosamente presentados y anotados para facilitar su comprensión, que se ponen así al alcance no sólo de los especialistas en las lenguas e historia de Grecia, sino también y fundamentalmente de los estudiantes universitarios de Historia y Filología clásicas, de Economía, Sociología y otros temas relacionados con el desarrollo social de los angeles Antigüedad.

Introduction 37 ask whether a distinction can usefully be drawn between Pausanias' treatment of objects of the pre-Roman and Roman periods.
