A contribution to what is increasingly called the sociology of culture, which studies linkages between ideas and institutions, cultural forms, and social structures. Considering Greece from the Dark Age to the early Hellenistic era, Bryant (sociology, U. of New Brunswick, Canada) examines the main structural changes within the economic, political, military, religious, and kinship institutions; the impact of those developments on the social position and consciousness of various groups and strata; and the relationship of the discourse of artists and intellectuals to their social affiliations and the patterns of institutional change. Includes a glossary without pronunciation. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
