A Brief History of Ancient Greece: Politics, Society, and Culture by Sarah B. Pomeroy, Stanley M. Burstein, Walter Donlan, Jennifer Tolbert Roberts
Publisher: Oxford University Press | 2004 | pages: 383 | ISBN: 0195156811 | PDF | 10,6 MB

The story of the ancient Greeks is one of the most improbable success stories in world history. A small people inhabiting a country poor in resources and divided into hundreds of quarreling states created one of the most remarkable civilizations. Comprehensive and balanced, A Brief History of Ancient Greece: Politics, Society, and Culture is a new and shorter version of the authors' highly successful Ancient Greece: A Political, Social, and Cultural History (OUP, 1998). Four leading authorities on the classical world offer a lively and up-to-date account of Greek civilization and history in all its complexity and variety, covering the entire period from the Bronze Age through the Hellenistic Era, and integrating the most recent research in archaeology, comparative anthropology, and social history. They show how the early Greeks borrowed from their neighbors but eventually developed a distinctive culture all their own, one that was marked by astonishing creativity, versatility, and resilience. The authors go on to trace the complex and surprising evolution of Greek civilization to its eventual dissolution as it merged with a variety of other cultures. Using physical evidence from archaeology, the written testimony of literary texts and inscriptions, and anthropological models based on comparative studies, this compact volume provides an account of the Greek world that is thoughtful and sophisticated yet accessible to students and general readers with little or no knowledge of Greece.

Publisher: Wadsworth Publishing; 9 edition (July 15, 2004) | ISBN: 0534642365 | Pages: 784 | PDF | 23.81 MB

What is the nature of the Western world? How has it shaped the men and women who are its heirs? What is its role in the larger worldwide civilization of the present day? The search for answers to questions such as these is not new; it traces back to the ancient Greeks. Inscribed on the temple of Apollo at Delphi were the words of the god: Know yourself. And one way to self-knowledge and knowledge of the world in which we live is to learn of the past experiences of humans like ourselves. As William Shakespeare observed, What’s past is prologue.
