VG-(Has light aging overall, former owner name and year on first page; surfaces are clear. ) Brown cloth, gilt letters on spine, dark brown paper dust jacket, 456 pp., BW illus. "The Early Iron Age of Greece, an obscure but crucially formative period in the growth of the most important civilization of the western world, has been traversed in earlier studies but seldom if ever examined in such detail as in the present volume. Dr. Snodgrass has produced an exhaustive synthesis of present knowledge of the period....Although the book reveals discontinuity in many aspects of material life, its ultimate message is one of continuity at the most fundamental level of all, that of human population."

Good. No Jacket. Ex-Library. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. Constructs a narrative of four centuries of Greek history from a synthesis of literary and archaeological evidence, including pottery, burial practices, architecture and metalwork, religion, commerce and language. The author argues that this era was in truth a dark age, from the perspective both of scholarship and the people who lived through it conscious of lost skills and departed glories. The recession was caused, he demonstrates, not by external factors but by aprocess of internal collapse. Rebound in strong library binding.
