Comprehensive and balanced, this condensed version of the authors' highly successful book (Ancient Greece: A Political, Social, and Cultural History, OUP, 1998) introduces the history and civilization of ancient Greece in all its complexity and variety. It covers the entire period from the Bronze Age through the Hellenistic Era, integrating the most recent research in archaeology, comparative anthropology, and social history with traditional yet lively coverage of political, military, and diplomatic history. Featuring a wealth of illustrations, this thoughtful and sophisticated volume is accessible to readers with little or no knowledge of Greece.

Review:

... 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)
