New volumes on Clubs and Associations

Philip Harland is able to announce on his Blog, that several volumes(s) of sources for the Graeco Roman Clubs and associations will soon be available. Harland will be one of the editors:
1) Firstly, Greco-Roman Associations: Texts, Translations, and Commentary. Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für die neutestamentliche Wissenschaft und die Kunde der älteren Kirche series. Co-authored with John S. Kloppenborg and Richard Ascough, 3 volumes in process, forthcoming with de Gruyter in 2011 and following.The first one will be:

Kloppenborg, John S. / Ascough, Richard S.
Attica, Central Greece, Macedonia, Thrace
Hardcover | RRP Euro [D] 119.95 / for USA, Canada, Mexico US$ 180.00. *
ISBN 978-3-11-025345-0. Series: Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für die neutestamentliche Wissenschaft und die Kunde der älteren Kirche 181, to be published June 2011
See more on this here: deGruyter.

2) Secondly, Associations in the Greaco-Roman World: A Sourcebook, co-authored with Richard Ascough and John S. Kloppenborg. Baylor University Press / de Gruyter, forthcoming in 2012.

This is great, as it is now a rather long time since the publication of the initial volume of the works of Kloppenborg and Wilson on the Graeco Roman clubs and associations: John S. Kloppenborg and Stephen G. Wilson, eds., Voluntary Associations in the Graeco-Roman World (London: Routledge, 1995), and the work on the publication of relevant source material has been going on for quite some time. I am looking forward to these publications, but I must say, I do hope the sourcebook, published by Baylor, will be substantially cheaper than the volumes published by deGruyter, as the prices of the latter’s volumes are not very friendly to a student’s economy.
