Editorial Reviews

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.
