Pastoral Politics

Animals, Agriculture and Society in Ancient Greece
ISBN: 1-930053-54-1
Written by a historian with a specialization in animal husbandry, this monograph provides an essential, practical aspect of historical study to a field that generally overlooks such mundane matters. Howe addresses the basic issues of why Classical Greece would have chosen to dedicate land that would have otherwise been useful for food-plant cultivation to the raising of domestic livestock. Sure to bring new light on an area often simply accepted as a way of life in the ancient world, this study provides an entryway into Classical thought about a necessity of ancient life.
