Abstract:

"The Greeks: Crucible of Civilization is an introduction to the world of Homer, Plato, Sappho, and Aristophanes." "The ancient Greek empire laid the foundation for our modern views of science, politics, warfare, philosophy, and art. Yet any examination of our similarities to the Greeks reveals as many differences. Paul Cartledge, Professor of Greek History at Cambridge University, explores our complex relationship to the Greeks by introducing us to fifteen men and women of extraordinary accomplishment: generals such as Epaminondas, statesmen such as Pericles, artists such as Sappho."--Jacket.
