I have read and reviewed many histories of Greece, no need to go into detail on this one. However, this book does an exceptionally good job of portraying the turbulent politics and leading personalities of the Greek democracies; Pericles in particular gets a very thorough treatment. The mystery of Greece is that its flame shone so brilliantly and yet so briefly, and the fate of Athens portends that democracy by itself does not ensure the success of a state. This book chronicles in accessible if diffident language the rise and fall of a great civilization.

Last revised, according to the Foreword p. 14, in 1984 A.R. Burn's "The Penguin (or Pelican) History of Greece" is an excellent middle length (well under 400 Penguin pages of text) one volume history of ancient Greece. It is accessible and well written and sectioned to read in easy stages. A cheap and easily available paperback it deserves updating and reprinting as an alternative to outrageously expensive university level ancient histories!
