This is a major, single-volume introduction to the whole of Ancient Greek History. It covers the period from the Golden Age of Knossos and Mycenae to the incorporation of Greece into the Roman empire in the second century BC. The book combines narrative and socio-economic history to cover all regions of Greece, including territories on the edge of the Greek and Hellenistic worlds, as well as the traditional centres such as Athens and Sparta.

A History of Ancient Greece provides students with an accessible history of the region, combining accounts of the major events with in-depth analyses of the underlying issues. The book is designed explicitly for student use and contains numerous pedagogic features including summaries of key issues, balanced accounts of controversial points, useful discussions of Greek institutions, chronologies and a glossary.
