Overview

The civilization of classical Greece-the birthplace of democracy, the Olympics, and the scientific method-played a crucial role in the development of the modern world. Empire of Ancient Greece, Revised Edition chronicles the remarkable legacy of the Greeks, as well as the diversity of their societies-from the thriving democracy of Athens to the militarism of Sparta to the oligarchy of Thrace. Many ancient Greeks showed a profound respect for the arts, as seen in the statues they chiseled, the plays they wrote and performed, and the philosophical and scientific discussions they held. Other Greeks, such as the disciplined Spartans, placed equal value in a rigorous lifestyle devoted to maintaining their city-state's dominant military position. The book also looks at everyday life in ancient Greece, from the wealthy citizens who grappled in the Olympic arena to the farmers who found 50 different ways to use olive oil.

Great Empires of the Past narrates the stories of the most influential empires in world history. Each volume in the series provides an overview of one empire or civilization, exploring its rise and fall, the extent of its influence, society and daily life, and impact in the modern world. Numerous sidebars highlight connections to today, key primary documents, and interesting facts. Full-color photographs and maps, a time line, glossary, bibliography, list of further resources, and an index provide readers with additional access to the information.
