    DescriptionMost ancient cultures disappeared with scarcely a trace, their effect upon our modern way of life of little consequence. The Greeks, however, continue to infl uence contemporary man through their drama, philosophy and art, their political cognizance and knowledge of science. There are many books introducing the Greek world to the modern reader, but this volume was recognized as a classic in the fi eld upon its publication in1951. This paperback edition includes a later preface by the author and 32 pages of photographs selected especially for the American reader.
