Pressestimmen

"The abundant riches of ancient Greek texts and artifacts make finding a good introductory text a constant challenge. In this new edition, Sowerby has blended together his substantive, rich, and insightful readings of ancient texts with greatly expanded and revised presentations on the political, social, intellectual, and artistic developments, figures, and accomplishments of the Greeks from the Mycenaeans to the Hellenistic age. Loaded with ancient texts and a most useful array of images, plans, and charts, the old core and the new enhancements make this new edition the first choice for an intro course on the ancient Greeks." - Brad L. Cook, University of Mississippi, USA.

"A constant problem for students studying the ancient world for the first time, whether at school or university, is one of context. Who were the important figures discussed in ancient literature and depicted in ancient art? What were the important places and events that shaped this ancient discourse? This volume, with its clear, well informed discussion and well chosen maps and illustrations provides an excellent introduction that will help new students quickly find their way in this ever expanding field of knowledge, while providing lively and thought-provoking reading for the rest of us. It is a useful reference that readers will want to return to again and again." Adam Bartley, University of Kent, UK."

1.0 von 5 Sternen Poor quality Kindle edition 25. Januar 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
While the book content is fine, the Kindle edition was hastily/cheaply prepared. In particular, the OCR software had trouble distinguishing the 'ri' combination from the letter 'n' so the text is filled with errors like 'vanous' (for 'various') and 'offenngs' (for 'offerings'). It is most disturbing when this occurs within a name ('Pans' for 'Paris') or uncommon words that a student may wish to look up. While it is possible to overlook such poor quality in a common romance novel or the like, it is quite unacceptable in a college textbook.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very Good 25. Oktober 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I had to read this book for my HRS class which is an introductory class on Ancient Greeks. When I first started reading the book I was just reading it to prepare for my exam but right off I started to like reading it. It's so easy to understand and very well written. I would recomend this book for just reading it because it's so good. It really tells everything important about the culture, and etc. of the Greeks.
