From the Publisher"...this is a tome for specialists - and, as such, rather a good one."
-Times Literary Supplement
"well-produced and richly illustrated...The Parthenon is an impressive achievement in its range and diversity of approaches, and the specialist, as well as the layperson, is certain to gain from it insights into the most revered of western architectural icons."
-Craige B. Champion, Syracuse University, The Classical Outlook
"This volume is a valuable resource in assessing the significance of the Parthenon. It provides the necessary information for evaluating both the ancient and modern role of the building which has become a touchstone of Western civilization and which, as such, needs periodic interrogation. All the essays in this volume are of high quality and well illustrated with photographs and diagrams. Scholars, students and non-specialist readers will all find valuable material here."
-Mary Ann Eaverly, University of Florida, Gainesville The Classical Bulletin
"The contributors to this volume are all leading scholars who have written extensively on specific aspects of the Parthenon, and their essays are not only authoritative syntheses of their own earlier work but also form an engaging assessment of current research, problems, and directions for future study. This valuable book is clearly intended for advanced students and established scholars and succeeds admirably in providing a thoughtful overview and summary of the state of Parthenon studies at the beginning of the 21st century." —Kevin Glowacki, American Journal of Archaeology
