Book Description

Jan. 4 2007
An ideal reader for courses in Greek history, Greek civilization, and Western civilization, this comprehensive collection of more than 180 historical source documents covers major aspects of Greek civilization from the Archaic Age through the end of the Hellenistic Period. Featuring a diverse and extensive array of selections from the works of major authors, Readings in Greek History: Sources and Interpretations offers balanced coverage of political, social, cultural, intellectual, economic, and technological developments in Greek life. It provides selections drawn from historical, philosophical, and oratorical Greek literary texts and from documentary sources, including inscriptions and papyri. Many of the readings have been newly translated especially for this volume. Readings in Greek History: Sources and Interpretations is organized chronologically but also addresses various themes throughout - including religion, war, and gender relations - motivating students to explore essential historical topics from a variety of perspectives. Substantial introductions to each chapter and selection offer useful background information, while more than thirty photographs, images, and maps further illustrate key components of Greek culture.

Product Description


Advance Praise: "Readings in Greek History: Sources and Interpretations is of very high quality. It provides an excellent selection of sources that illustrate many aspects of Greek politics and society as they expanded in the ancient world. The sources are well-chosen for both more and less famous authors. Their translations should be easily read and understood by contemporary students. . . . The text offers a wealth of illustrative, entertaining, and insightful views of the Greek past. In detail and in depth, from the classical core to border regions and confrontations, these fascinating sources provide a foundation for understanding the Ancient Greeks in their times." --Brian Pavlac, Professor of History, King's College

"A tremendous range of issues in Greek political, social, and cultural history have been incorporated. . . . The authors have chosen to encompass the entire sweep of Hellenic history down to the Roman conquest." --Thomas Figueira, Rutgers University

"The quality of the selections in terms of topics and organization is very high." --Lorraine Attreed, College of the Holy Cross

2.0 out of 5 stars Greek History July 17 2013

This text offered small pieces of information - thus I found it lacking in substance and not very beneficial with regard to the overall contribution of knowledge within the field.
5.0 out of 5 stars Better Quality than Described!! April 4 2013
By Lory - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised when I received the book and it looked practically new! The quality was much better than I expected...there weren't ANY writing marks in the book which was very nice! It also arrived faster than I expected, my first experience buying on amazon was very easy, convenient, and I definitely plan to buy my books on here for my future college classes.

As far as the context of the book it is a fun read. I'm reading it for my history class along side a textbook that just provides facts. I prefer reading this book because it gives you a better understanding with the direct experts from the different writers.

A schoolbook for my college age daughter. It worked very well and the content explained . Much cheaper than buying from the University Bookstore.
