About this title:

Synopsis: This is a companion to "The Penguin Encyclopedia of Ancient Civilizations", covering the later civilizations of the classical world: Greece and the Hellenistic world, Persia, China, Imperial India and their Roman heirs.

Review: The civilizations in question embrace not only Hellenic and Roman, for which the term "classical" is usually reserved, but also the Indic, Persian, and Chinese. Arthur Cotterell's contributors, mostly English scholars, do a fine job of showing the contact made by these far-flung cultures through trade and warfare, and the technological and artistic borrowings that took place as a result of that coming together. The authors discuss the rise of city-states and empires, chart the growth of early world religions, and explain the several causes for the decline of great civilizations. The book is richly illustrated with maps, plates, and drawings.
