Eminent historian Grant surveys the golden age of Greece through essays on 37 figures and their historical context from the early fifth to the middle fourth centuries B.C. The very readable text is accessible to the general reader, but also provides authoritative insights for the specialized historian. The notes are particularly well designed. Further essays discuss women, slaves, foreigners, and Pythagorianism. Includes 16 pages of b&w plates, and 7 maps. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
