DESCRIPTION BOOK:

John Griffiths Pedley's Greek Art and Archaeology quickly established itself as the most authoritative and comprehensive general survey of Greek art when it was first published in 1993. It ranges over 3,000 years of civilization in the Aegean and Greek worlds, from the earliest evidence of Bronze Age cultures in the third millennium B.C. to the very end of the Hellenistic period in Rome.This Second Edition significantly expands the discussion of Hellenistic art and architecture. Many important archaeological discoveries of the last six years -- on the Greek mainland, at Troy, and at sites of Greek colonization -- which have altered old interpretations of what happened at the dawn of Western civilization, are incorporated. Throughout, the text is extensively illustrated with outstanding color and black-and-white photographs. Virtually every object mentioned is represented with an illustration and in many cases a plan or diagram.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Greek Art and Aesthetics in the Fourth Century B.C. analyzes the broad character of art produced during this period, providing in-depth analysis of and commentary on many of its most notable examples of sculpture and painting. Taking into consideration developments in style and subject matter, and elucidating political, religious, and intellectual context, William A. P. Childs argues that Greek art in this era was a natural outgrowth of the high classical period and focused on developing the rudiments of individual expression that became the hallmark of the classical in the fifth century. As Childs shows, in many respects the art of this period corresponds with the philosophical inquiry by Plato and his contemporaries into the nature of art and speaks to the contemporaneous sense of insecurity and renewed religious devotion. Delving into formal and iconographic developments in sculpture and painting, Childs examines how the sensitive, expressive quality of these works seamlessly links the classical and Hellenistic periods, with no appreciable rupture in the continuous exploration of the human condition. Another overarching theme concerns the nature of “style as a concept of expression,” an issue that becomes more important given the increasingly multiple styles and functions of fourth-century Greek art. Childs also shows how the color and form of works suggested the unseen and revealed the profound character of individuals and the physical world.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Classical archaeology probably enjoys a wider appeal than any other branch of classical or archaeological studies. As an intellectual and academic discipline, however, its esteem has not matched its popularity. Here, Anthony Snodgrass argues that classical archaeology has a rare potential in the whole field of the study of the past to make innovative discoveries and apply modern approaches by widening the aims of the discipline.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Archaeologists do not discover the past but take the fragmentary remains which they recover and make something of them. Archaeology is a process of detection and supposition; this is what makes it so fascinating. However, the interpretations of archaeologists differ and change over time. They depend upon the amount of evidence available, the ideas and preconceptions of the archaeologist and their interests and aims. Michael Shanks's enlivening work is a guide to the discipline of classical archaeology and its objects. It assesses archaeology as a means of reconstructing ancient Greek society using the latest approaches of social archaeology. In addition, The Classical Archaeology of Greece outlines the history of the discipline and discusses why Classical Greece continues to fascinate us and why it has had such an impact on European civilization and identity.
