Review quote

'This book is not only enjoyable but comprehensive in its description of the richness and complexity of the classical past.' Anglo-Hellenic Review 'It is impossible not to be impressed by the author's sheer staying-power ... this is a triumph of tenacity; a skilful exercise in the compression of the past ... No one can deny Freeman's enthusiasm and his concern that a survey volume ... "provide the springboard into further study of these fascinating societies."' TLS 'There is so much that is impressive about this book, and for so many different levels of experience and subject requirement ... a wide-ranging book, suitable for a wide range of students.' JACT Review
