A Cultural History of Work in Antiquity, a recent publication edited by Eph Lytle

A Cultural History of Work

Congratulations to Prof. Lytle for the publication of his edited monograph, A Cultural History of Work in Antiquity, the first book in a six-volume set.

From the publisher:

“How has our relationship with ‘work’ changed for different cultures over the centuries? What effect has it had on politics, art and religion?

In a work that spans 2,500 years these ambitious questions are addressed by 63 experts, each contributing their overview of a theme applied to a period in history. With the help of a broad range of case material they illustrate broad trends and nuances of the culture of work in Western culture from antiquity to the present. Individual volume editors ensure the cohesion of the whole, and to make it as easy as possible to use, chapter titles are identical across each of the volumes. This gives the choice of reading about a specific period in one of the volumes, or following a theme across history by reading the relevant chapter in each of the six.”
