ANCIENT GREEK CIVILIZATION

Third Edition

The third edition of Ancient Greek Civilization is a concise, engaging introduction to the history and culture of ancient Greece from the Minoan civilization to the age of the Roman Empire. It explores the evolution and development of Greek art, literature, politics, and thought across history. It also examines the ways in which these aspects of Greek civilization were affected by the Greeks' interaction with and reaction against other cultures in the region.

The new edition now includes additional illustrations and maps, questions for discussion, links to internet resources, and an expanded discussion of the Hellenistic period. It weaves the latest scholarship and archaeological excavations into the narrative at an appropriate level for undergraduates. With in-depth yet accessible coverage, this is a remarkable glimpse into the world of ancient Greece for those encountering the topic for the first time.
