Format: Hardcover
As with all Edith Hall's books, we get a rare combination of academic authority with accessibility.
From a scholarly perspective Hall never dumbs down, never over-simplifies a debate or perpetuates any out of date notion; she is absolutely at the cutting edge of her field, with a commanding, multi-disciplinary knowledge. Yet the book itself is easy to read and clear. It never becomes arcane or esoteric or excludes the reader. As such it is an excellent introduction for anyone: the pleasure reader, classics-enthusiast, the undergraduate...

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book goes beyond the norms of Classical Athens with a bit of Sparta and lots of fighting. Professor Hall gets into the mind of the Ancient Greeks in a witty and sometimes unexpected way. Her chapter titles intrigue. A scholarly work but not written for scholars only. A very accessible read that really brings the Ancient Greeks to life.

This was a great read. If you know something about the ancient Greeks or if you don't you will love the way Hall threads a thousand years of history and development together to make it both coherent and beautiful.
