Back Cover
Thoroughly updated and revised, the second edition of this successful and widely praised text offers an account of the ‘classical’ period of Greek history, from the aftermath of the Persian Wars in 478 BC to the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC. Written in a straightforward and accessible style, Rhodes details the evidence on which his narrative is based, including inscriptions, coins, and material remains, and outlines the considerations which have to be borne in mind in using this evidence.

The new edition offers increased value to students with its wide breadth of scholarship, including the addition of two new chapters covering life and culture in the classical Greek world. New pedagogical tools to assist students in mastering the material include: textboxes, a comprehensive chronological table of the West, mainland Greece, and the Aegean, and a glossary. The bibliography has been completely updated, and background sections have been added to three chapters.
