LARSEN, J.A.O. Greek Federal States : Their Institutions and History. Oxford : Clarendon Press, 1968. Pp (6),[vii]-xxviii,(2),[3]-537,(3). Index. 8vo,green cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "In this book an attempt is made to describe the government and institutions of Greek federal states and to assess their contributions to interstate relations and rivalries. An introductory chapter sketching federal institutions is followed by two sections divided chronologically by the King's Peace. In each of these, sketches of indivictual states are followed by discussions of the narrative history. An effort is made to avoid retelling what is known to all students of Greek history and instead to bring out the contributions of the federal states. This at times means taking up aspects of Greek history commonly neglected or evendistorted on account of concentration on a few leading powers. Inevitably also aspects of Roman expansion and imperialism are involved. The period considered extends from archaic Greece to the Principate." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction: The Nature of a Greek Federal State. Part I - Federalism Before the King's Peace. 1. The Rise of Federalism. 2. The Chief Confederacies of the Period. 3.
