Interesting, well written book about Ancient Greece from the Minoans to Cleopatra, Last Pharaoh of Egypt. This is supposed to be an introductory text, but includes a great deal more information than the usual introductory texts. This book also includes several time lines, maps and photographs of vases, statues and coins.

If you don't know anything or only know a little bit about Ancient Greece, this is the book to read. ( )

Great introduction to Ancient Greece. A little dry at times. ( )

An excellent one volume introduction to ancient Greece, from archaic to Hellenistic times. Martin writes well, and the book covers all the major themes, events and battles of the periods in question. This is one of the first books I read on ancient Greece and, as you can now see from my library, its one of my favourite subjects; thanks, not least, to this great little book. Highly recommended.
