The authors are sensitive to the current impatience with traditional historical content, yet they convey much historical fact without losing either the reader's attention or the shape of the long time period treated--Booklist. "A most readable book - it can be wholeheartedly recommended"--Joint Association of Classical Teachers. Surveying Greek history and civilization, this examines such topics as the Minoans and Mycenaeans, City-States, Wars with Persia, Imperial Athens, Alexander, and after Alexander, as well as Greek religion, games, democracy and law, work and trade, and education.
