Ancient Greece was the most fascinating and influential civilization of all time, and this concise history tells you why. From the Myceneans and Minoans to the Spartans and Athenians, the full panoply of Greek civilization is represented in this short work. And there is hardly any aspect of importance in our own civilization today that cannot point to its origin in that great Aegean society of city states and warrior tribes.Cyril Robinson’s method is to touch lightly upon the main events of Greek history and the major phenomena of its culture, to explain them in current terms, and to point out modern parallels. Anyone who is aware of world events of the past century cannot but be struck by the similarities in ancient Greece.
