This significant and wide-ranging booklet examines the connection among the Greek city-states and the Hellenistic empire, focusing particularly at the interplay among Antiochos III and the towns of Western Asia Minor. Dr Ma methods this fabric from various angles: narrative heritage, structural analyses of imperial strength, and analyses of the features performed by way of language and stereotype within the interplay among rulers and governed. This paperback version encompasses a new preface and a bit of addenda.
