This guide examines the essential aspects of Greek history and thought. Starting with the fall of Troy nearly 3,000 years ago and ending with the rise of Alexander the Great, nine chapters deal with the political events of a specific period. Each one is then followed by sections devoted to the outstanding cultural achievements of the time in question, from the epic poetry of Homer to the philosophical writings of Aristotle.
