Grade 8 Up-Nardo profiles eight political and military leaders from Greece's Classic Age and describes the historical events and forces that brought them to power. The book begins with a brief history of ancient Greece emphasizing the significance of the city-states, especially Athens. Solon, Themistocles, Pericles, and Alcibiades are the Athenians featured, followed by Epaminondas, Philip, Alexander, and Pyrrhus. The thorough documentation, lists of ancient and modern works consulted, and recommendations for further reading make this book ideal for reports, and the lively, readable text brings this exciting period to life for general readers. Black-and-white photographs, reproductions, and line drawings appear throughout. Clear, concise, logically placed maps complement the presentation.
