This is the first ever documented study of the 1,035 identifiable Greek city states (poleis) of the Archaic and Classical periods (c.650-325 BC). Previous studies of the Greek polis have focused on Athens and Sparta, and the result has been a view of Greek society dominated by Sophokles', Plato's, and Demosthenes' view of what the polis was. This study includes descriptions of Athens and Sparta, but its main purpose is to explore the history andorganization of the thousand other city states.The main part of the book is a regionally organized inventory of all identifiable poleis covering the Greek world from Spain to the Caucasus and from the Crimea to Libya. This inventory is the work of 47 specialists, and is divided into 46 chapters, each covering a region. Each chapter contains an account of the region, a list of second-order settlements, and an alphabetically ordered description of the poleis. This description covers such topics as polis status,territory, settlement pattern, urban centre, city walls and monumental architecture, population, military strength, constitution, alliance membership, colonization, coinage, and Panhellenic victors.The first part of the book is a description of the method and principles applied in the construction of the inventory and an analysis of some of the results to be obtained by a comparative study of the 1,035 poleis included in it. The ancient Greek concept of polis is distinguished from the modern term `city state', which historians use to cover many other historic civilizations, from ancient Sumeria to the West African cultures absorbed by the nineteenth-century colonializingpowers. The focus of this project is what the Greeks themselves considered a polis to be.

"Reflecting the innovative work of the Copenhagen Polis Centre's 2004 inventory of Archaic and Classical Greek city-states, Hansen's "shotgun method" for reconstructing and estimating the overall size and local distribution of the Greek population challenges the long-standing opinion that the majority of ancient Greeks lived a rural, subsistent life"--Provided by publisher.

Parasema - griechische Staatssymbole - begegneten den Menschen tagtaglich in griechischen Poleis: Die meist kleinformatigen Symbole waren auf Objekten des alltaglichen Lebens angebracht, wie auf Marktgewichten, Munzen oder Losplaketten, aber auch auf stadtischen Siegeln oder auf Urkundenstelen. Diesen Gattungen ist gemein, dass sie offiziellen Charakter besassen, da sie von staatlichen Funktionstragern hergestellt bzw. verwendet wurden. Das Phanomen dieser Parasema ist bislang nur unzureichend erforscht: Es fehlt ein Uberblick uber das archaologische Material sowie seine Auswertung unter Berucksichtigung der literarischen und epigraphischen Quellen. Diese Forschungslucke schliesst die vorliegende Studie, indem sie Parasema auf Grundlage einer vollstandigen Materialsammlung aller Gattungen untersucht. Dabei wird gezeigt, dass es sich bei Parasema um ein originar griechisches Phanomen handelt, das in insgesamt 14 verschiedenen Denkmalergattungen fur den Zeitraum vom 6. bis zum 1. Jh. v. Chr. nachgewiesen werden kann. Nicht nur diese lange und vielfaltige Verwendung, sondern auch die weite geographische Verbreitung - Parasema sind in 96 Poleis und 8 Bundesstaaten in Griechenland, Kleinasien und an der Schwarzmeerkuste belegt - zeugen von der allgemeinen Verstandlichkeit der Symbole und von ihrer Bedeutung fur die Burgergemeinschaften. In der ikonographischen Untersuchung werden vor allem die Parasema der Poleis Athen, Priene und Magnesia am Maeander in Fallstudien in den Mittelpunkt geruckt. Neben den staatsrechtlichen Funktionen - Garantie, Kontrolle, Herkunftsangabe - waren Parasema aufgrund ihrer stets positiv besetzten Motive bestens dafur geeignet, die Gemeinwesen in optimaler, knapper Form zu reprasentieren. Die Studie umfasst zudem einen umfangreichen geographisch gegliederten Katalog, mehrere Appendices sowie 36 Tafeln.

Trade was a necessity in the ancient Greek world, yet the prevalent scholarly view is that Greek states intervened in foreign trade only rarely and sporadically. This book studies four necessary commodities, gold, silver, ship-building timber and grain, from production through export to import. Through the re-evaluation of known evidence and the presentation of new avenues of research, the book shows that Greek and non-Greek governments in the archaic and classical periods intervened and involved themselves greatly in foreign trade. The book offers the student of the Greek economy a fresh perspective on state intervention in trade and the ways in which intervention worked in the Greek world.

Monarchische Herrschaft ist im Altertum omnipräsent. Eine systematische epochen- und kulturvergleichende Untersuchung des Phänomens existiert bislang aber nicht. Der Band schließt diese Lücke. 25 Beiträge, die von ausgewiesenen Spezialisten verfasst sind, nehmen die Alleinherrschaft von Ägypten und dem Alten Orient über die griechisch-römische Antike bis in die Spätantike, das Frühmittelalter und die frühislamische Zeit in den Blick. Vergleichend wird das alte China betrachtet, und ein weiterer Beitrag eröffnet die rezeptionsgeschichtliche Perspektive.

From antiquity until the nineteenth century, there have been two types of state: macro-states, each dotted with a number of cities, and regions broken up into city-states, each consisting of an urban center and its hinterland. A region settled with interacting city-states constituted a city-state culture and Polis opens with a description of the concepts of city, state, city-state, and city-state culture, and a survey of the 37 city-state cultures so far identified. Mogens Herman Hansen provides a thoroughly accessible introduction to the polis (plural: poleis), or ancient Greek city-state, which represents by far the largest of all city-state cultures. He addresses such topics as the emergence of the polis, its size and population, and its political organization, ranging from famous poleis such as Athens and Sparta through more than 1,000 known examples.
