A nice introduction to Ancient Greek history.

Any additional comments?

My primary interest in history is Medieval Europe, but I felt that I needed to enhanced understand the bookends that are the Classical and Modern periods of European history to complement my studies of Medieval history.

Short but good history audible.

Any additional comments?

This is a good book for someone who has never read at all about Greece in addition to a good overview for someone like myself with a moderate background in Greek history.

Best book of Ancient Greece

Any additional comments?
