A good resource for those studying (or just interested in) ancient history. There's lots of good information here represented in easy to interpret maps. ( )

Not a bad supplementary read to the history of ancient Greece. It has a couple of irritating elements, such as its preference for unfamiliar (even if more accurate) spellings of ancient names (for instance, "Kleopatra" instead of "Cleopatra"). But, the point is the maps, and the maps are a great resource for someone studying the history of this period. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140513353, Paperback)

This well-illustrated volume is just the thing to have on hand while working your way through the pages of Xenophon, Herodotus, and Thucydides. Robert Morkot traces the growth of Greece from a series of often conflicting city-states, each with its own colonial outposts as far from home as Spain and Tunisia, to loosely knit alliances that waged huge conflicts against the Persian empire--and, as in the case of the Peloponnesian War, against each other. The pages devoted to Alexander the Great, which show how the Greek empire came to extend from southern Egypt to the gates of China are particularly interesting.
