Acerca de


Historians, classicists, Egyptologists, and social scientists will discover in this book how the Ptolemies and the Romans transformed Egypt's traditional agrarian institutions and social structure. The analysis weaves political and economic theory with evidence from contracts, tax records and official documents to determine what influence politics had on the economy.


'In this important book, Andrew Monson analyses documents from late Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt to study the large structural changes that make this transitional period crucial for the shape of the Roman economy up to the third century CE ... This book has many merits: it explores in depth the impact of the Roman conquest on Egyptian agriculture and the economy, and applies methods taken from the social sciences and modern economic analysis, as well as a comparative approach that looks at similar developments in other areas of the ancient world, ultimately showing that it is no longer possible to explain Egypt with Egypt only, and that, when used correctly, documentary papyri can be much more than a 'stupendous illusion'.' Livia Capponi,

'Monson shows great expertise and familiarity with the sources and issues under investigation and points to future questions for research on Ptolemaic and Roman Egypt. Anyone following this line of research may greatly benefit from consulting this book.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review

'[Monson] has given us a well-balanced analysis of this important political period in Egyptian history. By taking into account the interplay of the various determinants for change rather than establishing the one determinant, he provides a more convincing picture of Egypt's transition to a Roman province that will be the model for years to come.' Arthur Verhoogt, Bulletin of the American Society of Papyrologists
