From the Back Cover:

A History of Greece, ca. 130030 BC., offers a comprehensive introduction to the foundational political history that shaped the Ancient Greek world, covering the period from the late Mycenaean Age through to the death of Cleopatra VII, the last Hellenistic monarch of Egypt.

Structured chronologically, the book introduces readers to some of the textual and archaeological evidence utilized by historians to reconstruct the historical events that occurred during Greece’s Bronze, Archaic, Classical, and Hellenistic periods. For example, the political and social structure of the Greek world in the late Mycenaean period is revealed through analyses of the Linear B tablets, the oldest surviving records in Greek. It also explores various fragmentary papyri, inscriptions, coins, and other literary sources in reconstructing historical events. It provides a richly textured, but concise political narrative of events after the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC., including the destruction of Corinth by the Romans in 146 BC., up until the end of the Hellenistic Period in 30 BC. Balancing scholarly precision with a reader-friendly approach, A History of Greece offers an accessible introduction to the political history of one of most remarkable ancient civilizations and sophisticated periods of world history.
