    DescriptionWritten by four leading authorities on the classical world, Ancient Greece, Second Edition, introduces students to the history and civilization of ancient Greece in all its complexity and variety. A comprehensive history, it covers the entire period from the Bronze Age through the Hellenistic Era, integrating the most recent research in archaeology, comparative anthropology, and social history with a traditional yet lively narrative of political, military, and diplomatic history. Using physical evidence from archaeology, the written testimony of literary texts and inscriptions, and anthropological models based on comparative studies, Ancient Greece, Second Edition, offers an account of the Greek world that is thoughtful and sophisticated yet accessible to students with little or no knowledge of Greece. The book is enhanced by text boxes featuring excerpts from ancient documents, an extensive glossary, and a timeline and general introduction that provide a bird's-eye view of Greek history. Revised and updated throughout, the second edition features: * More in-depth coverage of such social and cultural topics as women and family life, material culture, religion, homosexuality, slavery, athletics, and life in the countryside * A new 8-page full-color photo insert, 125 black and white photographs (55 of them new), 15 line drawings, and 17 new and improved custom-drawn maps * Key terms--in boldface type when they first appear in the text and listed at the end of each chapter * Selective, up-to-date recommendations for further reading

    Review quote
    Praise for the previous edition: "Ancient Greece is the best available survey of ancient Greek history. It presents a clear picture of the most significant developments of Greek political and military history (the traditional emphases), and at the same time incorporates the results of recent work that aims for more inclusive coverage. This is without question the finest college textbook to appear in English on the history and civilization of ancient Greece."--Rebecca H. Sinos, Amherst College"This history uniquely captures the life of the ancient Greeks, both the intellectual grandeur of a gifted elite and the mostly forgotten farmers, soldiers, slaves, women, and workers who made their renaissance all possible. The authors have given us an accessible, reliable, and intellectually challenging history of Greece."--Victor Davis Hanson, Hoover Institute"With its pleasing synthesis of the political, the cultural, and the social--and its many plans, maps, photographs, and
