| Book Description: |
in the different regions of the ancient world presents two problems. First, in areas of common culture or at least of cultural contact, did the cities evolve independently, as phenomena of social, political, and economic growth, or did they emanate from a common center of origin? Second, how did the Greco-Roman city-state originate? It is these problems that Mason Hammond considers in The City in the Ancient World.
