  • "Conflict in Ancient Greece and Rome: The Definitive Political, Social, and Military Encyclopedia is a wide-ranging encyclopedia on ancient Greek and Roman warfare and the closely related political, cultural, and religious institutions of Greek and Roman society that supported or otherwise affected warfare. However, Conflict in Ancient Greece and Rome includes articles on forms of conflict other than pitched battle, including low-intensity conflict and civil and social conflict. The encyclopedia also provides biographical articles on major leaders and rulers, and articles on major ancient historians and other types of sources, including inscriptions and coins. The temporal scope is from archaic Greece to the Roman conquest of the Greek world, and from early Rome to the fall of the Western Roman Empire in CE 476. The focus is on central institutions (political, social, cultural, and military) and historical and biographical narrative rather than on literary analysis or archaeology"--Provided by publisher.
