Very Good-with no dust jacket. 0520027582. Library stamps/marks/labels/pocket/slip, otherwise light wear; noDJ. Solid hardcover.; First in multivolume series. This first volume originally published in 1971 under title: Ancient Greek military practices. "Interpreting his subject broadly, Professor Pritchett pursues a number of themes which are at the heart of the study of Greek history: the reliability of the ancient historians, the impact of the military on the social and economic life of the state, the control exercised over military commanders by the home government, and the like. The philological approach, the focus on the interpretation of specific words, is a sine qua non for the historian of military institutions, and for many of the topics he treats, Pritchett has provided the first full collection of the evidence."
