The Greeks has provided a concise yet wide-ranging introduction to the culture of ancient Greece since its first publication. In this expanded second edition the best-selling volume offers a lucid survey that: covers all the key elements of ancient Greek civilization from the age of Homer to the Hellenistic period; provides detailed discussions of the main trends in literature and drama, philosophy, art and architecture, with generous reference to original sources; places ancient Greek culture firmly in its political, social and historical context; includes a new chapter on 'Religion and Social Life'. @text:The Greeks now contains more illustrations, a chronological chart, maps, and suggestions for further reading as well as a new glossary. The Greeks is an indispensable introduction for all students of Classics, and an invaluable guide for students of other disciplines who require a grounding in Greek civilization.
