This brief, chronological survey covers the Ancient world in three parts: Prehistoric Europe and the Ancient Near East; Ancient Greece; and Ancient Rome. Succinct enough to be used with supplements, the coverage is carefully balanced between narrative and interpretation, highlighting historians' varying viewpoints on certain issues. Guy Rogers' careful revision preserves C. Warren Hollister's style while bringing the text up-to-date.
