Probably way behind modern research and short of the results of a century' s excavation and investigation. Quaint language to modern readers. Seems to completely lack the all important maps of the classical Greek world

This was free of charge. I used to borrow books from a local library, but have recently begun to get something to read from Amazon when I have time. I enjoy reading e-books including this one. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read to put fragmented knowledge of Greek history into some context. 23 Feb 2013
By Blair Wotton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good book for the price, but will frustrate most people as it is not illustrated. I wanted to understand what was happening geographically as well as politically but could not find the maps showing details from the right period online, and felt tied to my computer sometimes without reward. The text does also show it’s age, particularly in respect to recent archaeology. Nonetheless it was a pretty gripping read considering the subject matter and did link and clarify what I already knew very well. In this respect it did perform as advertised and I’m very happy with my purchase. I’d recommend this to anyone interested in the period, whether for it’s philosophy, architecture, culture, military history or politics.

I enjoyed this book. It gives an easy to read history of Greece from ancient times until the Roman Conquest. The characters are great. This is not a detailed history as much as a general overview of significant historical occurences. I couldnt put it down and read it in about 4 sessions. Great writing.
4.0 out of 5 stars A sometimes tedious but quick history of ancient Greece 4 Sep 2013

Heavy on military conquests, this book does not mince words. The 19th century language requires frequent use of the dictionary that will improve your vocabulary.

A pretty good synopsis of Greek history. An easier read than Thucydides.
