Description

A concise yet wide-ranging introduction to the culture of ancient Greece, The Greeks is a lucid survey that:

* covers all the key elements of ancient Greek civilization from the age of Homer to the end of the classical period
* provides detailed discussions of the main trends in literature and drama, philosophy, art and architecture
* places ancient Greek culture firmly in its political and historical context.

Including fourty-five illustrations, chronological chart, maps, and suggestions for further reading, The Greeks is an indispensable introduction for all students of classics, and an invaluable guide for students of other disciplines who require a grounding in Greek civilization.
