This book covers four broad areas of ancient history: non-Greek eastern Mediterranean civilizations, the Greek world, the Roman world, and late antiquity. It's a very ambitious project, especially since this is a slim volume (some 200 odd pages). I found only the Greek and Roman sections to be sufficiently detailed to make it worth reading. The other two sections were way too superficial and brief. I mean, how do you adequately cover the Hittites in two pages or the rise of Islam in a page? Why even mention them at all? That being said, I thought for an introductory work, the Greek and Roman sections were full of interest and engaging analysis. I think the authors were smart to focus on broad themes rather than a blow by blow chronological account. Overall, I would recommend this book, but only for its Greek and Roman histories.

An excellent introductory overview, albeit lite on the ancient Near East. Fully accessible to leisure as well as academic readers. A true pleasure, and more so to discover that it is but one in a series! Highly recommended!

I recently purchaed this book. I find a good introduction to the Ancient Mediterranean world. Though I wish that the authors gave more information about ancient Egypt. I can now go on to more detailed history books on Egypt, Rome and Greece.

I am using this book for a history course that I will take (and help teach) in the Fall Semester 2009. It is well-written, very concise. I found the graphics very helpful also. My only disappointment was having a question for the authors that I could not "ask." Robin Winks is now deceased and I don't think Susan Parkes is at UGA any longer. So I was not able to send along my question about the Mesopotamians. Dr. Dolores L. Sparrow
