Publisher's Summary

A juggernaut in the literary world at the apex of history, culture, politics, and art, the Greeks altered almost every facet of Western ideology and stand alone as a legend in the realm of human history. No other culture can boast such a profound importance on the rest of the known world, and the Greeks have the mythology to back it up. 

Out of their curiosity about the world around them, their pursuits of science and knowledge, conquest, and avarice, the rich tradition of their gods and goddesses reach out to us from across the creative divide and tell a tall tale of what the Greeks cherished, revered, feared, and believed.

Now the wealth of this glorious empire’s mythology is at your fingertips, filled with the triumphs and tragedies of these larger-than-life characters. From the fiery creation of the universe and to the petty jealousies of its lowliest, smallest players, the spectrum of Greek mythology is yours to explore. Discover the great conflicts that plagued both the lords of the skies as well as the leagues of men who battled against their gods and spun forth these incredible tales. Prepare to do battle with the kind of creatures known only to nightmares that the Greeks introduced into popular culture and beyond. Experience the love, loss, history, infidelity, triumph, and tradition of the these ancient heroes and villains that continue to inspire the masses even thousands of years after their demise.

Good one

A surprisingly readable account of several thousand years of Greek history. I read the book while in Greece and
it definitely enhanced my experience to know something more about what had happened among the ruins
I visited. The book is not overly technical, but it does give one fair warning when a particular historical point is
not fully supported or open to different interpretations.

A very good book. To me, it is insightful and interesting. The author is able to capture the very key points in the process of the long history and I love how the author makes comments to them. The language is also comfortable to read.

Recommended Introductory history

so it was refreshing to read about the goings on in mainland Greece while Alexander was away on campaign. Two other things that I enjoy about this book are Martin's dealings with the Greek dark ages, and his insistence to give every period in Greek history fair attention. Martin spends a similar amount of time on the archaic period as he does the classical and even Hellenistic periods. Overall, I would give this book 5/5 stars. It is a great introduction to Ancient Greek history.
