Summary
"Charles Freeman's The Greek Achievement is the first book in a generation to trace the entire course of ancient Greek history across thousands of years - from the Mycenaean and Minoan civilizations of the Bronze Age through the Archaic, Classical, Hellenistic and Roman periods. Celebrating the Greeks and their enduring legacy to the world, Freeman's account explores this incredibly rich and varied cultural heritage."--BOOK JACKET
