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

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.
