The Greek World 479–323 BC has been an indispensable guide to classical Greek history since its first publication. Simon Hornblower has comprehensively re-written and revised his original text, bringing it up-to-date for a new generation of readers.

The extensive changes include:

  • two important new chapters – Argos, and the Peloponnesian War
  • the incorporation of further primary sources
  • more than thirty new illustrations
  • the insertion of user-friendly subheadings
  • a completely updated bibliography.

With valuable coverage of the broader Mediterranean world in which Greek culture flourished, as well as close examination of Athens, Sparta, and the other great city-states of Greece itself, this third edition of a classic work is a more essential read than ever before.
