Neoi: A Contribution to the Study of Greek Associations

Excerpt

Acknowledgment of special indebtedness is freely made to the works of Collignon, Poland, and Ziebarth which are cited in the bibliography. In the serious study of the neoi, Collignon was the pioneer. Poland's book is a solid piece of work, a model of compression, bristling with well-digested facts. Ziebarth Aus dem griechischen Schulwesen, unlike Poland's work, is not meant as a reference book; hence it is more stimulating. Ziebarth's illumination of numerous inscriptions on the neoi by his interpretative and synthetic powers was of the greatest assistance to me.

Aside from the works of these three men, the bibliography of the subject is meager. The list of books and articles presented on pages 69 f. includes, I believe, nearly everything which makes more than passing mention of the neoi, and I have fortunately been able personally to consult every item. The abbreviations used in the footnotes and tables are explained on pages 70 ff.; in general, they are those adopted by the American Philological Association or those familiarized to Hellenists by the new edition of Liddell and Scott. Citations of works included in the bibliography are customarily to author and page only, with the date sometimes included to distinguish different works by the same author.

I am grateful to several members of the Committee on Monographs and others who have read this treatise in manuscript and who have given it the benefit of their excellent criticism. Professor Hewitt's painstaking editorial supervision has removed many at blemish.
