... the span of history is once again extremely generous, from the Stone Age to the Battle of Actium. Few histories of Greece have such a beginning and such an end, and even fewer incorporate the most recent research in archaeology, comparative anthropology, and social history. (Scholia Reviews)
... this more concise version introduces the history and civilisation of ancient Greece in all its complexity and variety and steers us away from monolithic, Grotean interpretations towards multiple authorship stressing social and cultural history. (Scholia Reviews)
