This book is a reprint of an academic treatise that illuminates previously unobserved connections between the genealogical elements in the ancient Greek myths and the historical shift of political power westward from the Greek cities of coastal Asia Minor to the well known metropoleis of mainland Greece in the centuries of transition between the Archaic Period and the era of the Classical Greek city-states. Since this treatise has been uncommonly controversial in the aftermath of its original composition, it seemed imperative to publish it in its original unabridged form. It is equally clear that there is also a call for a less detailed, more user-friendly rendition. That sequel is presently on the agenda and shall be forthcoming in the near future.
