This introduction to the Ancient Greek economy has proved popular
in France, and has also been translated into Italian and Greek;
this first English edition is of the second French edition of 2007.
Migeotte tries to avoid getting bogged down in the theoretical
debates which have characterised the last half-century of research
on the ancient economy, instead providing a survey first of
institutions and frameworks (the polis in particular) and then of
the different sectors of the economy (agriculture, crafts, trade),
he goes back to the primary sources and archaeology, allowing the
reader to form their own impressions, as well as setting out his
own more nuanced ideas. Above all he emphasises the diversity of
the Ancient Greek economy and the co-existence of traits which
appear both primitive and proto-capitalist.
