Her books include Thebes in the Fifth Century (1982); Urban Relocation in Archaic and Classical Greece: Flight and Consolidation (1990); Birth, Death and Motherhood in Classical Greece (1994); and A History of Ancient Greece (1996).


While the target audience may be that of the non-expertor undergraduate student, scholars, too, will find much in thisbook. Demand succeeds in making her Mediterranean truly afantastic cauldron. (Revue des EtudesAnciennes, 1 December 2012) For these reasons, and despite its shortcomings, the bookis worth reading and the author should be praised for bringingtogether a vast body of complex data with knowledge anderudition. (The Anglo-Hellenic Review, 1October 2012)"Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates andabove. ( Choice, 1 September 2012)
