Review of the hardback: 'The work will be of great interest to those seeking an economic and cultural background to Aristotle's political theory and will provide scholars with a greater sensitivity to the practicalities of ancient economic and civic life ... In sum, this book is an invaluable compendium of information from multiple sources that will deepen any reader's understanding of the material conditions of the ancient household and the nature of the local and city-wide institutions that inculcated the values of the community.' Cathal Woods, Virginia Wesleyan College
