This is the second of eight volumes on the history of Greece, first published in 1836. The volumes were aimed at two audiences: those people who wanted more than a superficial knowledge of the subject, but did not have the time or means to study the original sources, and those who had access to the ancient authors, but required a guide or interpreter. The second volume considers the history of Attica to the expulsion of the Pisistratids, the Greek colonies, the progress of art and literature, the affairs of the Asiatic Greeks to 512 BCE, and events from the accession of Darius to the battles of Marathon and Salamis. The final chapter takes the history to the end of the Persian invasion. This book will be of interest to researchers and students of ancient history.
