Richly illustrated and with new information which gives access to the latest scholarship on the subject, Greece in the Making, 1200–479 BC shows how to write a history of this period, and the insights that can be gained by doing so.

The latest volume in The Routledge History of the Ancient World series, presents a successful history of Greece in a field that is dependent on stories the Greeks told about their past.

Robin Osborne goes beyond tradition and explores the literature, art and archaeology of the period.

As an introduction to Greek history, and as a resource for degree course studies, Greece in the Making, 1200–479 BC is an essential read for all students of classical studies and those interested in the fascinating history of Greece.

About the Author:

Robin Osborne is Lecturer in Ancient History at the University of Oxford and Fellow and Tutor of Corpus Christi College. He is the author of Demos: The Discovery of Classical Attika (1985) and Classical Landscape with Figures: The Ancient Greek City and its Countryside (1987).

Review:

It is nicely illustrated. On the whole, it is very informative and clearly written account of early Greece, reflecting the most recent scholarship.
–The Journal of Indo-European Studies

...Osborne's provocative approach to many of the broad-ranging problems of political structure and class conflict in early Greece make for stimulating reading, and it is hard to see how Osborne's views could have been presented in a format other than a general historical survey. His book is sure to draw renewed attention to this most fascinating period of ancient Greece
