5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Excellent Basic Telling of Greek History 30 octobre 2013
Par Eric C - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is not meant to be an in-depth telling of all the complex intrigue and implication of ancient Greece, but rather a chance for one to "get their feet wet" and have a basic understanding of how ancient Greece evolved and influenced ancient civilization, which is exactly what I was looking for.

I finished this book, and have since moved on to 'Ancient Rome' by Simon Baker, which is similar in format and goal.

After reading his I no longer feel as much 'in the dark' as I used to about ancient Western civilization history. I hope to find similar books about the Middle Ages and Renaissance next.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Recommended Introductory history of Greece 13 janvier 2014
Par Corey - Publié sur
Thomas Martin's Ancient Greece is basically an overview of Ancient Greece that starts with the prehistory of Greece (specifically Greece before the Greeks) and ends with the fall of the Successor kingdoms. This book is purely an overview, and does not go into much detail, which is fine. Alexander is not given as much attention as his father, Philip II. I assume because the author was trying to focus more on what was happening in Greece during Alexander's reign rather than the Middle East or Asia. I think that this is one of the strengths of the book. Usually after Philip II and Alexander come on the scene, Athens and Sparta seem to disappear, 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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Best available general survey of ancient Greece 23 août 2014
Par Peter Smallhill - Publié sur
A very good introduction to ancient Greece and its profound cultural achievements.

Martin starts with a chapter on prehistory which is not really about Greece at all, and gets sidetracked with speculation - for example, that the development of agricultural society resulted in women taking a subordinate social position.

However, from chapter two the book provides a clear, straightforward account of the economic, political, social and cultural development of Greece. Its strength is in description rather than explanation - leaving the reader pondering why Greece's cities concurrently organized themselves into polis with similar concepts of citizenship and popular participation; and more deeply, what were the roots of "the [Greek] view that people must give reasons to explain what they believe to be true" - an astounding development then, which has yet to occur in large parts of today's world.

This valuable survey is enhanced by Martin's gift for choosing short quotations from the ancient sources that express the essence of what he is describing, such as the remark of Xenophon about the hatred of helots (community owned slaves) for the Spartans: "They said they would be glad to eat them raw." Throughout, Martin spices the book brilliantly with such extracts.

The second edition makes a huge improvement in the reproduction of the book's photographs, which unfortunately are also reduced in number.

The new edition also wisely guides the reader to classical literature itself as a source of understanding and insight.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 The book has been written to give us a thorough insight of Ancient Greece. 14 septembre 2013

I read it with great interest and liked it very much. Professor Martin's book is written in an easy way though it is most serious and very well documented. I think it's perfect for an approach to Greece's antiquity!

Quick read with just the driest of overviews regarding ancient Greece. Ok for a textbook I suppose. Was hoping for in depth explantions.
