Chapter by chapter, the relevant historical periods from the age of colonization to Alexander the Great are reconstructed. Emphasis is laid on the interpretation of the available sources, and the book sets out to give a clear treatment of all the major problems within a chronological framework.
The book covers:

  • the main literary sources: Aristotle, Diodorus, Herodotus, Plutarch, Thucydides and Xenophon
  • Greek political and military history from the eighth century to Alexander's conquest of Persia.

To ease understanding, the book also includes maps, a glossary of Greek terms and a full bibliography.
