A fine book considered by many scholars to be the best single volume history of the classical world. The first twelve chapters provide a comprehensive overview of ancient Greece -- its history, literature, philosophy, religion, and art. The next nine chapters describe the Hellenistic Period and the emergence of the Roman Republic. The final eleven chapters concern the rise and fall of the Roman Empire. Each chapter concludes with a detailed list of suggested books for further reading. An essential book for anyone interested in classical history and culture.

This is an excellent reference work, for anyone wanting to get an idea of the history - of Classical Greece and the following on of the emergence of the Roman Empire. The evolution of Classical Art and Literature through these periods is well chronicled, with details of the locations of important works given, as well as further reading lists for the subject matter covered in each chapter.

To whom it may concern there are inaccurate information in this book about Greek geographical history. I noticed that it refers to Asia Minor as Turkey even before Hellenistic period. As it is commonly known Turkish firstly appeared in Europe after 6th century AD, so I believe that it is unacceptable for an Oxford University Press publication to write such inaccuracies. I am sure there are more mistakes but I stop reading it. Of course, in the official site of Oxford University Press, it is described with words such as excellent, high standard, extraordinary, but unfortunately I can not write my review there, so I apologize to the seller in amazon.
