Abstract

An account of the influence of Dover's 1978 book on later scholarship, mapping significant scholarship in this field over the subsequent forty years. Particular attention is given to the '(social) constructionist' positions taken by Foucault, Halperin and Winkler as well as critics of this model, e.g. and esp. Davidson.
