Athens its rise and fall : with views of the literature, philosophy, and social life of the Athenian people by Edward Bulwer Lytton Lytton ( )
22 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sir Edward Bulwer Lytton was once Britain's most famous historical novelist, rivalling and outselling Dickens in his day. His best-known book was The Last Days of Pompeii; yet he was also responsible for a great work of history. Athens: Its Rise and Fall, originally published in 1837, is the most important and readable of the Victorian histories of ancient Greece. It stands alongside Macauley and Carlyle as a great historical work of British Romanticism, and anticipates the thinking of George Grote and John Stuart Mill on Greek history by over a decade. 2003 is the bicentenary of Bulwer Lytton's birth. To celebrate, Routledge is reissuing this influential work. This new edition will include the text of a never-before published "third volume", recently discovered by Oxford academic Oswyn Murray

5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"More than four thousand years ago, a warrior people invaded the rugged hills and fertile plains of the Balkan Peninsula. These people were the ancient Greeks, and their legacy to modern global society is immense. The Greeks invented democracy, narrative history writing, stage tragedy and comedy, philosophy, biological study, and political theory. They introduced the alphabet to European languages and they developed monumental styles of architecture still used throughout the United States for museums, courthouses, and other public buildings. They created a system of sports competitions and a cult of physical fitness, both of which we have inherited. In sculpture, they perfected the representation of the human body. In geometry, they developed theorems and terminology that are still taught in schools. They created the idea of national literature, with its recognized great writers and the libraries to preserve their work. And, perhaps what most people would think of first, the Greeks bequeathed to us their treasure trove of myths, including a hero who remains a favorite today -- Hercules." --Publisher
