Product Description

Review

"Ancient Greece is an excellent text. The authors' shared opinion that ancient Greece is 'one of the most improbable success stories in all of world history' unfolds in a happy combination of the traditional detail of familiar names and events along with a tale of the nameless many--even slaves, women, children, and non-Greeks." --Carol Thomas, Professor of History, University of Washington and President of the Association of Ancient Historians"My students and I have been waiting for such a clear and fluid reconstruction of Greek history--an unusually smooth blend of political, social, and cultural history. By authors widely recognized for their commitment to teaching as well as scholarship, this work has many strengths and pedagogical virtues." --Donald G. Kyle, Professor of History, University of Texas at Arlington

Format: Paperback
One of the best things about this book is that it's current and up to date on the most recent dicoveries in ancient Greek history. It provides the reader with a clear and organized history of Greece which both the novice and student can appreciate. It also includes great original sources, which are sometimes difficult to come by, and excellent maps. This is a great review for pulling all the facts together.
