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.
