A classic survey of history from the beginnings of mankind to the fall of the Roman Empire, Chester Starr's A History of the Ancient World makes the latest scholarship available to the general reader in a lively and accessible way. Reflecting five decades of teaching and research, and drawing on the most recent scholarship, the fourth edition of this widely read history provides the same broad coverage and absorbing literary style that distinguished previous editions. For the new edition, chapters on early man, a section on the revolt of Bar Kochba, and a chapter describing the end of the Roman Empire have been rewritten to incorporate the most recent scholarship, and bibliographies have been brought up to date throughout.

Review:

Excellent text. This work will be my core text for a course on Greece and Rome....Starr's solidity and conservatism make it the keel to our ship of history. (Jace Crouch, Oakland University)

Excellent general history. Starr's book is hard to beat for a well-balanced introduction to ancient history. (Paul Hazard, Saint Xavier University)

A sound, succinct, and comprehensive survey. (Rob Rice, University of Pennsylvania)

Starr's overview of ancient history is uncluttered with trendy drivel. It is solid and scholarly (a model of what a text should be.)

Very well written. (L.F. Harwell, University of Mobile)

A classic textbook which renders solid service. (B.K. Young, Eastern Illinois University)

Good for upper division courses, thorough, sensitiive to new trend in historiography, nice level of sophistication. Not just another Western Culture text. I like this book. (Martha Rampton, Pacific University)

An excellent, well-organized readable text. (Richard Wixon, Lakeland College)

Well-rounded, thorough text. (Russell Lemmons, New Mexico Highlands University)

Perfect for a general course or sequence on the ancient world. (Charles W. Hedrick, University of California, Santa Cruz)
