Overview

This book invites the reader to discover (or rediscover) Greece — the land in which the oldest and most authentic roots of Western civilization are to be found — and the world of the Greeks — their historical development, their cultural horizons, their art — through a series of photographs and graphic reconstructions of the highest quality, a worthy accompaniment to a text filled with reliable and up-to-date information. A text that is accessible to people who have no familiarity with the subject, written in a clear and sparkling style that will grip the reader emotionally and intellectually. A journey, rather than a description, through the clear skies of the Mediterranean and an immense artistic and cultural heritage, accompanied by hundreds of pictures, aerial views, plans and superb reconstructions in color.
