"This will make an excellent textbook. Everyone teaching Greek history complains constantly of the lack of a good book. This one has a good balance of narrative and social/economic history. It's also unusual in trying to cover all areas of Greece, not just Athens and Sparta. I should add that I've read a couple of other Greek history textbooks in preparation for other publishers in the last couple of years, and this book is head-and-shoulders above the rest. It's a really good book." Ian Morris, Stanford University
" ... presents both an elegant narrative and an interesting assessment of the Hellenistic world" Greece and Rome
"... innovative ... While the traditional 'glories' of Greek history - the classical period, the history of Athens - are excellently handled, this is not at the expense of less frequently covered terrain." Times Higher Education Supplement
