If you are looking for a book on Ancient Greek History this is NOT it. This book is full of assumptions and half-truths which have stained the great work done by many historians. It is a shame when facts of history are distorted by some people's biases and desires to re-write history. Frankly, despite many English college's antipathy toward Greeks, I am shocked that such biased piece of garbage was allowed to be published.
