Step back in time 3,000 years to the shores of the eastern Mediterranean where one of the most enduring and influential civilizations of the Western world is emerging. Ancient Greece was made up of a number of self-supporting city-states, each of which developed a strong, individual identity. They developed from an agricultural society that wrote in simple pictograms into a sophisticated culture. Centuries on, the Greek legacy survives in modern society. The origins of democracy, mathematics, medicine, and philosophy can be traced back to this time in history. Immerse yourself in this ancient but curiously modern world, mingle with its gods, rulers, and military heroes, and sample its clothes, plays, foods, marketplaces, and street life. This book is your ticket to Ancient Greece in all of its grandeur and vitality.

Drawing on the latest interpretations of artifacts, texts, and other evidence, The Ancient Greeks takes readers inside the process of discovery, and provides a full history of the study of classical Greece, from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance right up to the present. The result is an ideal guide toone of the world's most revered cultures of the past.

The classical Greek civilization is the cornerstone of Western civilization today. The Greeks invented and developed everything from logic and democracy to rhetoric, drama, and philosophy. Empire of Ancient Greece, Revised Edition chronicles the remarkable legacy of the Greeks, as well as the diversity of their societies--from the thriving democracy of Athens to the militarism of Sparta to the oligarchy of Thrace. It explores the conditions that made it possible for the ancient Greeks to develop a culture that set the foundation for our intellectual lives today, and explains why Greek power eventually declined. Everyday life in ancient Greece, from the wealthy citizens who grappled in the Olympic arena to the farmers who found 50 different ways to use olive oil, is also examined. Connections in our own world to the ancient Greeks are numerous, including the Olympics, much of our classical literature, the scientific method, architecture, and many English words.
