Comprehensive and balanced, this condensed version of the authors' highly successful book (Ancient Greece: A Political, Social, and Cultural History, OUP, 1998) introduces the history and civilization of ancient Greece in all its complexity and variety. It covers the entire period from the Bronze Age through the Hellenistic Era, integrating the most recent research in archaeology, comparative anthropology, and social history with traditional yet lively coverage of political, military, and diplomatic history. Featuring a wealth of illustrations, this thoughtful and sophisticated volume is accessible to readers with little or no knowledge of Greece.
