Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'… a magisterial study … [Hurwit] displays immense erudition and command of the scholarly literature … Yet far from producing a dryly academic treatise, Hurwit constructs a vivid picture of this multipurpose hub of urban life and details just how the Acropolis was used, when and by whom.' New York Times Book Review

'For sheer volume of information presented in an accessible format … the book has no peer and it certainly should be part of the library of every serious student of ancient Athens … Hurwit gives us what must be pretty much the last word on the Acropolis of the 20th century. Thanks to this book, it is a monument we can revisit again and again.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review

'This is a monumental undertaking, and the resulting book is a very wide-ranging and detailed survey of the most famous site in the Greek world.' The Classical Review
