The Other Greeks: The Family Farm and the Agrarian Roots of Western Civilization by Victor Davis Hanson
University of California Press | December 22, 1999 | English | ISBN: 0520209354 | 687 pages | PDF | 7 MB

For generations, scholars have focused on the rise of the Greek city-state and its brilliant cosmopolitan culture as the ultimate source of the Western tradition in literature, philosophy, and politics. This passionate book leads us outside the city walls to the countryside, where the vast majority of the Greek citizenry lived, to find the true source of the cultural wealth of Greek civilization. Victor Hanson shows that the real "Greek revolution" was not merely the rise of a free and democratic urban culture, but rather the historic innovation of the independent family farm.
