`The Ancient Greeks is a valuable new textbook ... Written in a lucid and approachable style, the book is extensively illustrated with figures and maps. The Ancient Greeks along with its companion the Ancient Greece sourcebook will make an excellent resource for students registered in ancient Greek history courses as well as the wider public interested in this fascinating period of Greek history.' - Zinon Papakonstantinou, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA `This volume admirably fulfils its professed aims in providing both the student reader and other interested parties with a comprehensive introduction to the history and culture of the Greek world c.800-323 bc. ... The focus is not merely on historical sources but also a wide array of archaeological materials - many of which appear as illustrations - together with numerous tables, maps and plans. There is, in short, everything one could wish for (and more!) when teaching a course in Greek history.' - Joseph Skinner, University of Liverpool, UK
