Editorial Reviews

Comprises 28 papers from the conference--11 in English, the others in Greek, French, or German--responding to the increased importance placed on regional character in the dating and interpretation of sculpture of all periods. Arcadia and Laconia are singled out because their sculpture has been neglected, partly on account of overtly local characteristics. There is no shortage of material from either region, and much is presented here for the first time. Of particular importance is the publication of the new arrangement of the Bassae frieze in the British Museum. Includes b&w illustrations. Distributed by David Brown book Co. Annotation c.
