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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Required reading for any student of the period 22 Oct. 2013
By robert seth jucovy - Published on Amazon.com
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars The Cambridge Ancient History multivolume set is considered by many ... 29 July 2016
By Donald C. Henry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The Cambridge Ancient History multivolume set is considered by many as the leading authority in the field. Compiled by a publisher with an eye to maintaining as accurate as possible glimpse back into the fog of the distant past. Utilizing leading scholars with an expertise pertaining to specific eras and regions, the series attempts to paint a full cultural picture of the leading societies of the "classic" regions of the Near East, North Africa, the Mediterranean Sea, and into northern Europe as the Roman Empire spread in that direction. Because of both the wide extent of royal record keeping and the corresponding lower availability of the archeological "accident of discovery", records of many of the other sectors of a given society are smaller. During many eras military narrative predominates. This tends to be the case with this specific book (Vol.3, book 2- 2nd edition- printed 1991). Yet even here, a decent picture can be gathered of many aspects of life back in 750-500 BC. A separate book (Vol.3, book 3) covers much more extensively the cultural development of the young Greek society along with it's contribution and influence on history, as it delves into the growth of Greek cities, art, philosophy, and commerce.

This series does not cover central or eastern Asia, not to mention North or South America, nor much of rest of Africa.
