Classical Athens boasted one of the most impressive flowerings of civilisation ever known, with original and influential achievements in literature, art, philosophy, medicine and politics. Fortunately, The World of Rome, the counterpart of this book in the study of Roman History, is almost as good as this one. Therefore, I would also recommend it. When I bought it I was afraid it wasn't going to be as nearly as good as The World of Athens, but it is almost as good.

Only 20 left in stock (more on the way). Think of the set as one book broken up into three parts, with the Greek practice text from every chapter in book 1, the grammar and exercises in every chapter in book 2, the answers to exercises in book 3. Nutty, but it works. Short passages of Greek text (with vocab lists at the end of each passage).

Reading Greek: Text and Vocabulary. by. Joint Association of Classical Teachers. First published in 1978, Reading Greek has become a best-selling one-year introductory course in ancient Greek for students and adults.

Classical Athens boasted some of the most original and influential achievements in literature, art, philosophy, medicine and politics. This best-selling book, now issued in a second edition, provides a comprehensive and highly illustrated introduction to its history, society, culture and values aimed at the student and the general reader. The text has been extensively revised from the first edition and the bibliography updated. A wide range of topics is discussed, but the book refuses to divide up the Athenian world neatly into separate compartments, insisting that sense can only be made of the society by making connections between its history, institutions, values and environment. The book can be used either on its own or as an accompaniment to students learning Greek with the Reading Greek course.

The best reference book of Ancient History I ever read (and I've read quite a few). It covers a great deal of information and is very, very accurate. At the same time, it discusses many detailed questions and gives you an amazing overview, which is both general, but also in-depth. I recommend this book equally for:

1) a beginner
2) a experienced reader of Ancient Greek reader who wants a book to help him remember a bunch of things that we naturally forget after time and to learn new ones.

You can be sure this book will bring new light to your studies. Fortunately, The World of Rome, the counterpart of this book in the study of Roman History, is almost as good as this one. Therefore, I would also recommend it. When I bought it I was afraid it wasn't going to be as nearly as good as The World of Athens, but it is almost as good.

I wish we had more books like these. So many different sources, academic discussions, and aspects of Ancient Culture considered in a text that is, simultaneously, judicious, readable, and comprehensive.

If someone has seen this second edition and also the first edition, please let us know whether the changes are minor or if we should buy the new addition. How has the book changed?

While this book covers the usual subjects like geography, religion, social apects, the wars etc., it gives enough information on everything to be the one book on classical Athens that you should have as a reference guide to further study. I used this booking when studying 5th century Athens and found that other books added to the information I got from it, but did not equal or replace its content.

That is the best written history book I've read. The book really kept me concentrated on it for a long time with it's lively and information-rich structure. Book deals with nearly all aspects of life in Athens: political, economical, art, religious, classes, slaves, important people at the time. I would recommend to anyone who likes history generally or anybody who wants a good intro to ancient greeks especially Athens.

"The World of Athens" presents a history of Athens in a well organized format. Covers all aspects of Athenian history from geography to wars to politics. It is one of my most valued reference books.
Global Progression
What is it about much University educational texts that demand the substitution of interest, inspiration and creative writing for little more than a bland listings of analytical fact?
This books is as effective an "introduction" to classical Athenian culture as a Walmart inventory would be an introduction to 21st Century Western Culture.
Thank Zeus this wasn't part of my education. It would undoubtedly have rendered stillborn a lifelong fascination.
On the other hand, the book would probably be easily absorbed and quickly excreted by accounting, engineering and advertising students.
