Product description

This companion to the editor's "Penguin Encyclopedia of Ancient Civilizations" goes beyond the misleading definition of "classical" civilization, which is traditionally reserved for Greco-Roman antiquity, and examines the five great civilizations which were at their height between 550BC and 600AD: the Chinese, the Indians, the Persians, the Greeks and their Roman heirs.
