Overview

Was there such a person as Homer? Who were the key figures in the first democracy of the Western World? Who is the father of tragedy? Who is the father of history?
Of all the world's ancient civilisations, it is perhaps the Ancient Greece that has the strongest hold over the modern imagination. The history, philosophy and literature continue to intrigue and enthral. Now John Hazel has compiled the definitive biographical guide to the Greek and Hellenistic world from 750 BC to the end of the Roman Empire.
The lives of Alexander the Great, Socrates and Plato are opened up, but so too are those of lesser-known figures: Bacchylides the lyric poet; Chares the general; and the traitor Ephialtes, giving a thorough and fascinating overview of life in Ancient Greece.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Up-to-date, inexpensive, authoritative and comprehensive' - Library Journal

'A starting point for anyone who is beginning to find their way around the Greek world fascinating reading for older hands' - JACT Review

Library Journal
Into the aging body of reference literature on ancient Greek biography comes this up-to-date, inexpensive, authoritative, and comprehensive addition from Routledge's "Who's Who" series. Hazel, a classicist and coauthor of Who's Who in Classical Mythology, profiles (in alphabetical order) Greeks of historical, philosophical, and literary significance. Chosen for their impact (good or bad) on Greek society from 750 to 100 B.C.E., these figures range from the well known--like Alexander the Great, Socrates, and Plato--to the lesser known--like Bacchylides the lyric poet, Chares the general, and Ephalites the traitor. Hazel's portraits offer vivid biographical information and detailed discussion of the individual's achievements. Varying in length from a paragraph to a few pages, the entries are clear, interesting, and accessible to the general reader. In addition to a glossary, three appendixes feature a chronological table of Greek and Hellenistic times, a list of rulers, and three maps. Recommended for history collections.--Marilyn Rosenthal, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
