Theories, Models and Concepts in Ancient History by Neville Morley

Theories, Models and Concepts in Ancient History

Part of the Approaching the Ancient World Series


Theories, Models and Concepts in Ancient History by Neville Morley

Morley's book offers the first accessible guide for students to show how theories, models and concepts have been applied to ancient history. Showing readers how they can use theory to interpret historical evidence for themselves, as well as to evaluate the work of others, the book includes a survey of key ideas and theories on a wide range of ancient historical topics including society and economy, the environment, gender and sexuality, and myth and rationality. Also including a helpful annotated guide to further reading on all the topics covered, students will not want to miss out on this essential guide to the ancient world.


'Succinct and stimulating.' - The Journal of Classics Teaching 'Well written.' - Arctos 'Morley has written a clear and thoughtful overview of the various theoretical approaches available to the aspiring historian' - Prudentia'
