Overview


This gorgeously illustrated, compact volume considers the entire civilization of ancient Greece, including Magna Graecia's colonial expansion. In color photographs and text, the book offers views of virtually all aspects of ancient Greek life, from the material needs of the people to their artistic culture, from political and administrative organization to the religious cults, and from urban structures to architectural typologies. Archaeologist Stefania Ratto has infused the commentary with accurate, well-informed, and up-to-date scholarship while keeping it lively and accessible, and the clarity of the book's design makes Greece an attractive and inviting introduction to the classical period. A fantastic guide for both the traveler and the general reader, Greece is a welcome addition to any library.
