9780415099585: Aspects of Greek History 750–323BC: A Source-Based Approach

Aspects of Greek History offers an indispensable introduction to the central period of Greek History for all students of classics. Chapter by chapter, the relevant historical periods from the age of colonization to Alexander the Great are reconstructed. Emphasis is laid on the interpretation of the available sources, and the book sets out to give a clear treatment of all the major problems within a chronological framework.
The book covers:

  • the main literary sources: Aristotle, Diodorus, Herodotus, Plutarch, Thucydides and Xenophon
  • Greek political and military history from the eighth century to Alexander's conquest of Persia.

To ease understanding, the book also includes maps, a glossary of Greek terms and a full bibliography.

About the Author:

Terry Buckley has recently retired from full-time teaching, having held the post of Head of Classics at Camden School for Girls and Roedean. He has also been for many years a member of the JACT Ancient History Committee.

Review:

Buckley's Aspects of Greek History bridges the gap between general histories that offer little in the way of source analysis, source books that offer too litle historical context for the non-specialist, and scholarly works that assume a greater familiarity with the language and cultural background than undergraduate students can be expressed to possess. The format of Buckley's work is highly organized, topically arranged narrative history interpersed with primary source material..
