I recently returned from my first trip to Rome, and was looking for a book to help me understand the history behind the ruins I had just seen. I found that and more in Robert Lane Fox's The Classical World. Having only studied western civilization in high school (more than 25 years ago), I found Mr. Lane's book to be an excellent introduction to ancient Greece and Rome. He touches on the art, literature, architecture, geography, political and military history of these two cultures which form so much of the fabric of our own. The book is very readable and makes the topic accessible without being too simplistic. It is not dry, as some history texts have a tendency to be. The book is divided into two parts, one on Greece and the other on Rome, yet it transitions from one to the other with great ease. After finishing The Classical World, I'm anxious to return to Rome to see the ruins with fresh eyes, and am also looking forward to visiting Greece.
