    Editorial Reviews

    "A welcome contribution to introductory studies on Greekhistory, and aims at presenting not just the historical narrationbut also the primary sources on which history is based... Whatevertheir background, all readers will benefit from this study, sinceRoisman manages to cover thoroughly the main aspects of eachperiod. In addition to the historical narrative the book issupplemented with the basic secondary literature, the primarysources and, clearly one of its strengths, e- sources on the web.Thus, the reader gets a good idea both of the valid scholarly viewsand of what material exists on the internet to support these views.This work is surely a first step for everyone who wishes to exploreGreek history. Finally, what is most helpful and educative is thatRoisman's study lets the facts speak for themselves so that readerscan form their own opinion about them. It seems that this kind ofself-learning is the organising principle of the book. To myknowledge this is the first study of this kind, and I wouldstrongly recommend its translation into other languages so thatmore students and the general public can benefit from it." (Panagiotis Paraskevas, Bryn Mawr Classical Review, 1October 2012)

    "Headlined ‘Historical Sources in Translation', thissubstantial 642-page annotated sourcebook is just the thing toplace in the hands of bright sixth-form students doing the OCRAS/A2 Ancient History paper, or of undergraduates enjoying theproliferating Classical Studies courses at university." (TheAnglo-Hellenic Review, Autumn 2011)
