Anyone travelling to Greece for a holiday or to the Olympics in Athens in 2004 will find this invaluable. It covers in a clear manner the classical era, the conflict with Persia, the conquest by the Romans, the Byzantine age and the occupation by the Turks; the struggle for independence and the turbulence of the late twentieth century, right up the calmer waters of the twenty-first. This history will help visitors to make sense of modern Greece against the background of its diverse heritage. A Gazetteer, cross-referenced to the main text, highlights the importance of sites, towns and battlefields. A chronology details the significant dates and brief survey of the artistic styles of each period is given. 'This book provides an A-Z cultural gazetteer and an authoritative general history'. - "The Weekend Telegraph".
