"The work is wonderfully clear, informative, and engaging. Students and scholars will enjoy consulting it. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty." (Choice, 1 May 2011)"It has become customary for reviews of handbooks to express misgivings toward the genre and its ever-increasing presence. But whatever one might think of companion volumes, this is a useful book. It boasts a wide range of generally high-quality essays by a parade of eminent scholars. Perhaps its most praiseworthy feature is the clarity and accessibility of many of its contributions, which makes them ideal starting points for the non-specialist." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 7 May 2011)"One doesn't have to be a student of Greek to enjoy this informative compendium." (Book News Inc, November 2010)
