Ancient Greece : from prehistoric to Hellenistic times

Martin, Thomas R., 1947-

New Haven : Yale University Press, 2013.

xiv, 311 p. : ill., maps ; 21 cm.

In this compact yet comprehensive history of ancient Greece, Thomas R. Martin brings alive Greek civilization from its Stone Age roots to the fourth century B.C. Focusing on the development of the Greek city-state and the society, culture, and architecture of Athens in its Golden Age, Martin integrates political, military, social, and cultural history in a book that will appeal to students and general readers alike. Now in its second edition, this classic work now features new maps and illustrations, a new introduction, and updates throughout. "A limpidly written, highly accessible, and comprehensive history of Greece and its civilizations from prehistory through the collapse of Alexander the Great's empire. . . . A highly readable account of ancient Greece, particularly useful as an introductory or review text for the student or the general reader."-- Kirkus Reviews "A polished and informative work that will be useful for general readers and students."--Daniel Tompkins, Temple University
