9780140552232: The Ancient Greeks (Peregrine Books)

The life and thought of the ancient Greeks, the major formative influence on Western civilization, continues to dazzle and fascinate modern man. M. I. Finley's brilliant account is based on extensive historical scholarship and archaeological research. Beginning with the question "Who were the Greeks?" Sir Moses discusses the Dark Ages (illuminated by the Homeric poems), the tyrants and lawgivers of Archaic Greece, and the achievements and final decline of the classical city-state. He offers, too, a lively and enlightening revaluation and reinterpretation of Greek literature, science, philosophy, architecture, sculpture, and painting.
