The Greeks : An Introduction to Their Culture Paperback

Part of the Peoples of the Ancient World series

Description

The Greeks has provided a concise yet wide-ranging introduction to the culture of ancient Greece.

In this new and expanded third edition the best-selling volume offers a lucid survey that covers all the key elements of ancient Greek civilization from the age of Homer to the Hellenistic period.

It provides detailed discussions of the main trends in literature and drama, philosophy, art and architecture, with generous reference to original sources, and places ancient Greek culture firmly in its political, social and historical context. The new edition has expanded coverage of the post-Classical period with major expansions in the areas of Hellenistic history, literature and philosophy.

More emphasis is placed on the Greek world as a whole, especially on Sparta, and the focus on social history has been increased.

The Greeks is an indispensable introduction for all students of Classics, and an invaluable guide for students of other disciplines who require grounding in Greek civilization.
