Editorial Reviews

Times Literary Supplement - Paul Cartledge
This book cannot fail to be challenging, and not only to the general reader...[The era covered in this study] was perhaps the most important in Greek history and indeed one of the most significant in all history. Murray...has done it full justice.
American Historical Review - C. G. Thomas
Oswyn Murray's Early Greece is a volume which has the dual purpose of providing an up-to-date account of major periods and of presenting the methodology employed by scholars of each particular age. Murray has fulfilled both tasks admirably...[He] sets the story of Greece in a broad perspective geographically and intellectually.
Washington Post Book World
Together these five compact volumes [Early Greece by Oswyn Murray, Democracy and Classical Greece by J. K. Davies, The Hellenistic World by F. W. Walbank, The Roman Republic by Michael Crawford, The Later Roman Empire by Averil Cameron, all available from Harvard] cover much of the history of the classical world, and do so with both ease and authority...For this new series they have been revised or otherwise brought up to date.
