About the Author

Darel Tai Engen is Associate Professor of History at California State University, San Marcos.


"The present volume convinces us of the complexity and dynamism of the ancient economy, while encouraging us to carry on with further research, using the literary and epigraphic texts of the fourth century (and beyond), to deepen our understanding of the individuals and the complex motivations that shaped their experiences."
---Bryn Mawr Classical Review--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"Honor & Profit tiene la virtud de situar nuevamente en escena y poner al dia una serie de debates en torno a como conceptualizar los fenomenos economicos en la Grecia antigua. ... el libro hace su aporte mas importante con la edicion y el analisis que realiza de los decretos honorificos ya que constituyen un excelente punto de partida para volver a pensar en asuntos tan relevantes como el lugar del comercio en la ciudad clasica, las necesidades de abasto y como eran resueltas, las multiples relaciones entre los valores sociales y las actividades economicas, etc."
--Rey Desnudo-- (11/11/2014)
"Compelling too is Engen's larger claim that the blurring between "honor" and "profit" motives that we see in the decrees further exposes the limitations of both the formalist and the substantivist accounts of Greek economic life."
--Greg Anderson, American Historical Review

--Greg Anderson"American Historical Review" (12/01/2011)

"...this work has considerable merit for its compilation and classification of the evidence on what Engen has demonstrated was an important dimension of Athenian economic policy." --;I>Classical World--Thomas Figueira "Classical World "
