The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Ancient Greece: An Authoritative Account of Greek Military and Political Power, Architecture, Sculpture, Art, Drama and Philosophy by Nigel Rodgers

THE RISE AND FALL OF ANCIENT GREECE REVEALED An authoritative account of Greek military and political power, architecture, sculpture, art, drama and philosophy, and their lasting effect on Western culture. Tells the myths and legends of the Olympian gods, such as Zeus, Athena, Apollo and Aphrodite, and the lives and works of the great writers and historians, including Plato, Homer and Aristotle. Accounts of temples, palaces and archaeological sites display the influence of ancient Greece in the development of the architecture and art of the Renaissance and the Classical Revival. Battle plans and maps chart the military history of the rise and fall of ancient Greece, including rivalry between Athens and Sparta, the Persian Wars and the campaigns of Alexander the Great. With over 1000 photographs, sculptures, paintings, plans and artworks, this lavishly illustrated reference guide evokes the magnificent heritage of classical Greece.
