Classical Greek Civilization Vol. 6 : 800-323 B. C. by John T. Kirby.

The state of Greek knowledge concerning world geography was poor in comparison with geographical knowledge today.

Pagden writes well, but this is a hard book to get a handle on. It strives to be a single story of two adjoining, but wildly fluctuating, spaces defined teleologically as two civilizations -East versus West. Indeed, the goal is to explain the current conflict between the (Western) ideals of democracy versus the word of God (Islam) as, if not the culmination, then an expression of the ancient. Greek ideal of democracy versus the Persian commitment to absolute rule. No matter that this rhetoric has appeared only occasionally over the 2,500 year history.

Classical Greece was a period of around 200 years (5th and 4th centuries BC) in Greek culture. This Classical period saw the annexation of much of modern-day Greece by the Persian Empire and its subsequent independence. Classical Greece had a powerful influence on the Roman Empire and on the foundations of Western civilization.

Kirby's book offers an impassioned plea for the recuperation of the humanities in general, and of classical . These are some of the questions that gave rise to John Kirby's Secret of the Muses Retold.

Kirby's book offers an impassioned plea for the recuperation of the humanities in general, and of classical studies in particular. No expertise in Greek, Latin, Italian, or literary theory is presumed, and both traditional and postmodern perspectives are accommodated. This new study of works by five twentieth-century Italian writers investigates the abiding influence of the Greek and Roman classics, and their rich legacy in our own day.

What did a typical ancient Greek eat for breakfast? How would a Greek doctor set broken bones? How were taxes levied in the ancient world? How were Greek law-courts run? What was a Greek funeral like? What did Greek philosophers think about? Who were the major gods and goddesses of Greek religion and myth? The answers to these (and many other) questions can be found in this comprehensive cultural encyclopedia of the ancient Greek world. Special attention is given to the arts -- verbal, visual and performing -- that have made ancient Greece the wellspring of high culture for all subsequent western civilization.

This volume, which reflects the latest advances in classical scholarship, covers life in the Greek-speaking world from the time of Homer and Hesiod to the death of Alexander the Great. Each chapter includes an introductory essay giving an overview of the material, plus unusually accessible topical entries.

In addition to an introduction by the editor, a glossary of foreign and technical terms, and a bibliography of scholarship essential for further reading, the following chapters, contributed by an international team of scholars, are included: Chronology of world events during this period Geographical survey of the Greek-speaking world during this period Literature and art Communication, transportation and exploration Social class system and the economy Politics, law and the milita
