Description: Written by four leading authorities on the classical world, here new history of ancient Greece that dynamically presents a generation of new scholarship on the birthplace of Western civilization.

Ranging from Greece's first beginnings in the Bronze Age through the tumultuous Hellenistic era, this volume offers a truly wide-ranging portrait, blending the traditional political and military approach with more modern accent on social and cultural history. Everything is included here -- the sweeping philosophical systems of Plato and Aristotle, the daily lives of women in Athens, dramatic sea battles in the Aegean, the epic poetry of Homer, the rise of the city-state. The book offers illuminating descriptions of Sparta and Athens, recounts the Persian and Peloponnesian wars, evaluates the contributions of notable figure such as Solon, Cleisthenes, Pericles, and Philip II of Macedon, and discusses the remarkable rise of Alexander the Great. Throughout the book, the editors trace the slow evolution of Greek culture, revealing how the early Greeks borrowed from their neighbors, but eventually developed a distinctive culture of their own, marked by astonishing creativity, versatility, and resilience.

Featuring 17 original maps, over 80 photographs, and numerous "document boxes" which highlight a variety of primary source material, this book provides an account of the Greek world that is thoughtful and sophisticated while remaining accessible to the general reader
