    DescriptionThe Hellenistic world, ushered into existance by Alexander the Great, took in a vast region, stretching from Iraq in the east to Sicily in the west. Within this area, society was multicultural but the dominant culture was Greek, developed from the culture of classical Greece, and carrying on the legacy of classical Greece in the visual arts, literature, science, technology, and daily life. Narrative chapters guide the reader though the vast conquered lands of Hellenistic Greece, exploring marriage customs; festivals, sports, and spectacles; symposia (drinking parties); the agricultural and urban components of the polis (city-state); food; drink; education; science; technology; and the legacy of the Hellenistic age in the modern world.

    Review quote
    "For high school and college students who must research daily life during the Hellenistic Age, this will be a very useful resource. Thus, it should be purchased by most high school, college, university, and larger public libraries. Since this period is also of great interest to students of Christianity and Judaism, it will also be a good acquisition for seminary libraries." - ARBA
