Item Description...
The Greek World 479-323 BC has been an indispensable guide to classical Greek history since its first publication. Now Simon Hornblower has comprehensively rewritten and revised his original text, bringing it up to date for a new generation of readers. The extensive changes made include the addition of two important new chapters - on Argos, and the Peloponnesian War - and the incorporation of further primary sources. Also new are more than thirty illustrations, the insertion of user-friendly subheadings, and a completely updated bibliography. With valuable coverage of the broader Mediterranean world in which Greek culture flourished, as well as close examination of Athens, Sparta, and the other great city-states of Greece itself, this third edition of a classic work is a more essential read than ever.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Fresh as if it happened yesterday  Aug 13, 2007
I am not an historian nor student of history, but just an aficionado. As such I got a big fan of the Routledge History of the Ancient World Series. This volume covers the period of classical Greece, more or less from the time when democracy had been already firmly established in Athens up to the life of Alexander the Great. The book has some very strong points, for instance by describing Greece in all its heterogeneity of places and political systems. It gives a very good analysis of the way wars (such as the famous Peloponesian described by Thukydides) came about and what their consequences were. What to my feeling is covered to little is the cultural aspect. In a previous part of the series, on archaic Greece (Greece in the Making) cultural aspects form a more integral part while in the present volume they appear more or less en passant. Yet it is the time of Socrates, Plato, Aristotle that is covered. May be these fellows were politically not very important, but still. However, this critique should not be taken as a suggestion to change the book, bnut rather to add a second volume on the classical Greek world covering Art, Philosophy and Science.
