Craig Cooper (ed.) - Politics of Orality

Am adunat in e-biblioteca mea cateva volume din seria Mnemosyne. Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum. In afara faptului ca volumele aparute sub aceasta sigla sunt de o calitate excelenta, sunt si foarte scumpe. De aceea nu prea pot fi vazute in colectii particulare, ci mai mult in biblioteci - si mai ales in Occident.

Politics of Orality este volumul 6 dintr-o excelenta serie intitulata Orality and Literacy in Ancient Greece.
