In this collection of new essays, an international group of experts explores, in connection with Greek culture, an idea that has proven very fruitful in anthropology: that of reciprocity as a practice and idea. It provides the most comprehensive examination so far of reciprocity in Greek economic, social, and intellectual life, discussing its relevance to epic and drama, historical writing, oratory, religion, and ethical philosophy.
