About the Author

Walter Scheidel is Professor of Classics and, by courtesy, History at Stanford University.


"The book is an admmirable demonstration of the great potential that lies in comparative analysis of the Greco-Roman world and Ancient China. It is hoped that this book will form the basis for more, exciting, comparative research, which will surely broaden the horizons of Ancient history beyond its current compartmentalization and excessive departmentalization." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review
