The Economy of the Greek City-State. Volume I. Structures and Production
Éditions Armand Colin
"Alain Bresson's thesis is fascinating. He delves into his research and does not give up until he cuts to the heart of the matter."—André Murcie, Incitatus
Long awaited in the academic world, L'Économie de la Grèce des cités will deeply challenge our vision of the economy of ancient Greece.
The first volume analyzes the structure of the ancient Greek economy at the level of production. The author delves into topics such as environmentalism, demography, transportation, energy, the structure of the city-state, and agricultural and nonagricultural production. He supplements this analysis with tables, maps, and translations of original texts.
