In this revised and updated edition of a definitive collection of source material, Matthew Dillon and Lynda Garland present a wide range of documents on Greek social and political history from 800 to 399 BC, from all over the Greek World. Ancient Greece includes:

  • source material on political developments in Greece, including colonization in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, Athenian democracy, the constitution of Sparta and the Peloponnesian war
  • detailed chapters on social phenomena, such as Greek religion, slavery and labour, the family and the role of women
  • clear, precise translations of documents taken not only from historical sources but also from inscriptions, graffiti, law codes, epitaphs, decress, drama and poetry, many of which have not previously been translated into English
  • concise, up-to-date bibliographies and commentaries for each document and each section.

An ideal course text for all students of ancient history and classical studies.
