Item Description...
In this new edition, Paul Cartledge and Antony Spawforth have taken account of recent finds and scholarship to revise and update their authoritative overview of later Spartan history, and of the social, political, economic and cultural changes in the Spartan community.
This original and compelling account is especially significant in challenging the conventional misperception of Spartan 'decline' after the loss of her status as a great power on the battlefield in 371 BC.
The book's focus on a frequently overlooked period makes it important not only for those interested specifically in Sparta, but also for all those concerned with Hellenistic Greece, and with the life of Greece and other Greek-speaking provinces under non-Roman rule.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book, but not enough of Paul Cartledge!  Mar 15, 2004
First of all, this has made a mistake in the title of this book, which should read:...A regional history 362BC-400AD.
This a great book that talks about a (mostly)unknown period of Sparta's history; Sparta after the disastrous battle of Leuctra. However, if you have no prior knowledge of the Archaic and classical Sparta,this book may seem a bit difficult. If this is the case, I would recommend that you read the excellent "Sparta and Lakonia: Getting on with Anthropology"(ASIN:0415262763), by Paul Cartledge, which is my opinion the definite book on Sparta.
The first part of this book, which is written by Paul Cartledge,the world expert on Sparta, talks about Sparta during the troubled Hellenistic period. Cartledge is very interesting as always. The second part, written by Anthony Spawforth, details Sparta as a roman province, but it lacks the writing and expertise of Paul Cartledge. Still, it is a must for anyone interested in Sparta (maybe a bit academic though).
It was about time that someone realized that Sparta did not disapeared after Leuctra! Two thumbs up!|
