Classical Greece provides an analysis of the physical setting of and the archaic legacy to the classical city, its economy, its civic and religious institutions, the waging of war between cities, the occurrence and ancient analysis of conflict within the city, and the private life of the citizen, finishing with history through the fifth and fourth centuries. Robin Osborne presents us with a concise, comprehensive, and authoritative book that will be enjoyed by classics and history students; students taking courses in classical Greek literature, philosophy, art, and archaeology; academics; and general readers alike.

Review:

Strong, clear, themed discussions; informative use of selected ancient authors. Captures the age of Athens and Sparta and the big social and cultural changes well. Deserves to oust the obsolete works that are still too easy to find! Dr Graham Shipley, Head of Ancient History Division, School
of Archaeology and Ancient History, University of Leicester.

`In an attempt to re-contextualise the phenomenon of classical Greece, this new volume in The Short Oxford History of Europe uses a topical-based approach to challenge traditional chronological narratives. The nine specially commissioned essays by seven authors step through the Economy, the
City, War, Political Conflicts and Private Life before examining the political-military flow of events. This will stimulate students to think beyond diachronic approaches and to re-examine their own understanding how the Greeks lived.'
John Lewis, Faculty of Classics, Cambridge The Anglo-Hellenic Review No 23
