Classical Press of Wales

Publisher Description

The Classical Press of Wales, an independent venture founded in 1993, publishes monographs and collective volumes on the whole of Classical Antiquity, and also on ancient Egypt. CPW welcomes projects from scholars worldwide. The Press's founder and director, Anton Powell, is also founder of the biennial Celtic Conference in Classics (2000-); several of our volumes have begun as international panels of the CCC. Particular strengths of the Press include Archaic Greek poetry and politics, Sparta (where CPW has a claim to be world leader), culture and politics of the Hellenistic period, of the Roman Revolution, of Late Antiquity - and themes and methods in the modern writing of Ancient History. CPW values lucidity, honest logic however difficult, and careful iconoclasm.
