Hanson, Victor Davis.  
The Other Greeks: The Family Farm and the Agrarian Roots of Western Civilization.

Publisher: New York, Free Press, 1995..
xvi, 541 p. 24 cm. ”shows that the real ”Greek Revolution” was not the rise of the free and democratic urban culture, remarkable as this was, but the historic innovation of the independent family farm. The heroes of this book, therefore, are what he calls ”the other Greeks”-- the neglected freehold farmers, vinegrowers and herdsmen of ancient Greece who formed the backbone of Hellenic civilization. It was these tough-minded, practical, and fiercely independent agrarians who gave Greek culture its distinctive emphasis on private property, constitutional government, contractual agreements, infantry warfare, and individual rights.” Stock# 39,843.

The Villa Ariadne

Publisher: Newton Abbot, UK: Readers Union, 1974 book club ed..
252pp. hardback 8vo: near Very Good in a Good+ dj in Brodart poly cover [text is age browned; else nrVG] A classic travel memoir. The Villa began as Sir Arthur Evans’s home while he worked at the excavation of the ancient Cretan palace of Knossos. It passed to a curator of Knossos, the Englishman John Pendlebury, who fought the Germans on Crete during the Second World War and died a legendary hero to Cretans. This is that amazing story, told by the British journalist Dilys Powell (1901-95), who lived for a time in Greece before World War II with her archaeologist husband Humfry Payne (1902-36), and knew the Villa for over 40 years. Powell is probably best known to literate Americans as a long time panelist on the BBC radio program “My Word.”
