by Will Durant
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0736627375, Audio Cassette)Part One Of Two Parts
Volume 2 of The Story of Civilization, the Durants' dynamic synthesis of world history, deals with Greek civilization. THE LIFE OF GREECE tells the whole story of Hellas, from the days of Crete's vast Aegean empire to the Roman conquest.
The Durants' picture of 5th-century Athens is a masterpiece of compression, synthesizing the high spots and highlighting the significance of what many consider the most fruitful epoch in history.
"Tribute must be paid not merely to the immense learning which has gone into the making of the book but to the ease of its style and particularly the Durants' gift of concise, epigrammatic statement." (The New Yorker)
