Reviews

"The scholarship is thorough, deep, and well-explained... Readers looking for an authoritative account of almost any aspect of ancient Greek history should be thoroughly gratified."--Kirkus "Creators, Conquerors, and Citizens is an ideal seminar on ancient Greek history, in book-form: it's scholarly but never pedantic, and it's all told by a true enthusiast with a gift for clarifying. If Waterfield is correct that every generation needs its own new history of ancient Greece, he's certainly provided a fine example, a book fit to stand alongside Christian Meier's Athens or Josiah Ober's magnificent The Rise and Fall of Classical Greece."--Steve Donoghue, Open Letters Review "Highly readable, with well-produced maps and figures, it can be relied on as a distillation of twentyfirst-century historians' overall view of the subject... We are in sure hands as Waterfield guides us through the major historical milestones... Any of these would warrant a volume in itself, and the fact that Waterfield keeps the whole huge freight train on track, indeed clacking elegantly along, is proof of an experienced engineer."--Literary Review of Canada "A distinctive and decidedly modern interpretation of Greek history."--MHQ Magazine
