All the hoplite (Oplites as we Greeks say) theories all in one.
If you are an Ancient Greek history buff, student or academic, this book is a must. The emergence of the ancient Greek hoplite warrior has been linked with the development of the Greek Polis (city) State which led to Athenian Democracy; humanity's first even such political institution. But as academics go, they are apt to disagree on many points. After years of debate in publications, Yale University decided to settle the argument once and for all with a symposium on the topic. The most learned and authoritative academic on the topic attended and debated the topic. After the event, their positions were collected and this is the end result. You will not be dissapointed.
