Description

The period from the emergence of the Greek city-state in the 8th century BC to the reign of Alexander the Great and the establishment of Greek monarchies was one unparalleled in history for its brilliance in literature, philosophy and the visual arts. This book reproduces the text of the "Oxford History of the Classical World: Greece and the Hellenistic World" in a smaller paperback form. Written by a team of leading classical scholars, it includes chapters on political and social history, Homer, Greek myth, drama, science and the great philosophers. All the original line drawings and maps have been retained, and an eight-page section of illustrations has been specially selected for this edition by Sir John Boardman.show more
