Overview

"This is a very well-researched and important contribution to scholarship. Deborah Kamen's argument that Athenian civic ideology has obscured the complexity of statuses in classical Athens is persuasive, as is her detailed discussion of each of the status categories. There is great value in having the evidence for all of the status groups presented together in a single book rather than in separate specialized studies. In lucid prose, Kamen carries out this project with clear-sighted precision."—Sara Forsdyke, University of Michigan

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Kamen offers a brief, sensible, inexpensive, and generally persuasive survey of the spectrum of status in Athens. . . . [K]amen's well-annotated, sensible survey is an excellent place for scholars and advanced students to start research on any of these groups."Choice

"[T]his is a stimulating and important book. It will prove indispensable reading for anyone interested in ancient Athenian society and an essential item in reading lists for academic courses. Kamen takes a fresh look at the texture of Athenian society, and given the breadth of material covered she does an excellent job in demonstrating its multifarious nature in a clear and accessible style."—Rachel Zelnick-Abramovitz, Scripta Classica Israelica
