Overview

After its conquest in 331 B.C., Egypt became the center of the Hellenistic world, attracting men and women from other parts of the Mediterranean area. In this cosmopolitan and mobile society, Greek women of the ruling class had unprecedented opportunities and were able to employ some of the legal freedoms enjoyed by their Egyptian counterparts.

Using evidence from a wide array of sources including literature, papyri, inscriptions, coins, and terra-cotta figurines, Sarah Pomeroy discusses women ranging from queens such as Arsinoƫ II and Cleopatra VII to Jewish slaves working on a Greek estate. This edition contains a new foreword, additional information, and an updated bibliography by the author.

Booknews
A basic text for clinicians and students in family therapy and women's studies; addresses the question of how women experience family life from a variety of perspectives. Covers theory, practice, training, a variety of settings, and the impact of mental disorder, addiction, ritual in families. Paperback edition of a volume first published in 1984 (Schocken) contains a new foreword, additional information, and an updated bibliography. After its conquest in 331 B.C., Egypt became the center of the Hellenistic world. Pomeroy (classics and women's studies, CUNY) discusses women ranging from queens to Jewish slaves working on a Greek estate. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Classical Philology, Vol. 82, No. 1 (Jan., 1987) - Deborah Hobson
This is a very informative book; though written in a style which would be comprehensible to a nonspecialist, there is a great deal of material presented here which will be new and interesting to any classicist. Greek is transliterated and not always translated, which gives an ambiguous message about the intended readership. The strength of the book lies in the impressive variety and extent of detail about Hellenistic women which is encompassed therein.
The History Teacher, Vol. 20, No. 1 (Nov., 1986) - Frayda Hoffnung
Because of its clarity, erudition, and the importance of its subject matter, this book can be used in a variety of ways by educators. It can be employed in upper-division history courses on Rome, Greece, or the Near East; or in Women's Studies courses that require a text which explores the social-economic aspects of history. It is no less important that her careful use of original sources can serve as a paradigm for future historians and classicists.
