Review:


"Expertly written and highly accessible, the new edition of Ancient Greece is a superb example of how the history of Greek civilization should be analyzed and presented to students and a general audience. Of special note is the inclusion of new findings and interpretations that bring the narrative up to date. I know of no comparable textbook on the political, social, military, and cultural story of the ancient Greeks that matches it in range, depth, and approachability."--Joseph Roisman, Colby College


"Ancient Greece is an excellent choice for those seeking a comprehensive treatment of ancient Greek history. Its chronological reach is long, and it devotes a great deal of attention to social and cultural topics along with the standard political and military ones."--Eric Wild Robinson, Indiana University
