Item Description...
Within the space of three centuries, up to the great Persian invasion of 480BC, Greece was transformed from a simple peasant society into a sophisticated civilization which dominated the shores of the Mediterranean from Spain to Syria and from the Crimea to Egypt - a culture whose achievements in the fields of art, science, philosophy and politics were to establish the canons of the Western world. The author of this book places this development in the context of Mediterranean civilization, providing an account of the transformation that launched Western culture.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
early greece  Feb 9, 2006
this book is held in high honors by historians, but in contempt by archaeologists - and for good reason. if you want to understand a period of human history from which the literary evidence is virtually non-existent, you must incorporate other sources of evidence in your treaty. murray does not, and his vision of archaic greece is thus vastly different to the view of robin osbourne, whose "greece in the making" is a much better treatment of the archaic period than this. oswyn murray, although a vastly skilled historian and a wonderful scholar, just does not get it right.

if you have no idea of what is going on during the 7th and 6th centuries BC and have this book at hand, by all means read it - but please keep in mind that there are much better treatments of the period available.
Brilliant Synthesis  May 26, 2004
A wonderful synthesis, learned but not wordy, of the kind that only a very senior historian could write. Effectively conveys his views as to many complicated problems of early Greece, while giving due regard to the positions of others.
A great introduction to the origins of the West  Oct 25, 2003
I found "Early Greece" to be a great book, that really helps the reader to understand the context of the development of the classical Greek civilisation, how it was influenced by the surrounding cultures, but at the same time started its unique path.
The writer does an excellant job of keeping us engaged in his work. I found it to be an easy and enjoyable read. I was challenged by the writer's work to look beyond the accepted wisdom of our understanding of how much we have been influenced by the Greeks, especially his analysis of the clash between Greek and Asian cultures, in his understanding of the Persian wars.
Great book!
Informative, yet drab for the outsider  Dec 13, 2002
This book was used in part, for a class on the in Classics on the Age of Homer. This book describes early Greek life and culture in depth, yet at the same time seemed to be way over my head. The text is very longwinded and confusing for someone who has not met the material before, and would not recommend it as a book to read in your pasttime. Rather, the book is very thorough, and would make for great refernce material, giving an in depth perspective to early Greek culture.
