The Cambridge Ancient History series hardly needs any introduction from me! I am a general reader with an interest in Roman and British history. I have read and reviewed volumes from the Edinburgh History of Ancient Rome, and I think that series is a better place to start to get a general and quite detailed feel for the period. However, I just love the sheer density and detail of the more thematic treatment in the Cambridge series. If you're a bit OCD like me, then don't miss this one!

Required reading for any student of the period 22 Oct 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Cambridge Ancient History Volume 7, Part I: The Hellenistic World is an invaluable text for any serious student of the period. Edited by Walbank and Astin it covers the general history of the period from the death of Alexander to the point where Rome was about to enter the Hellenistic east as a major player.

The coverage of Macedonia by Walbank is particularly good as are the sections on science, warfare, townplanning and other specialized topics.
