Description
 
THE GREEK ACHIEVEMENT the foundations of the Western World - In this enormously enjoyable and absorbing book, Charles Freeman sets out to provide a new generation of readers with a comprehensive and accessible account of Greek history over two thousand years. Drawing on the most recent research, Freeman describes the early settlements, the wars with the Persian empire, the grandeurs of Periclean Athens, the rise of Macedonia, the glories of the Hellenistic period and the crucial influence of Greece on the Roman Empire. Interweaved with the narrative are chapters on social and spiritual life, on philosophy, drama, mathematics and science which demonstrate that it is no exaggeration to say, in Freeman's phrase, that Ancient Greece provided "the chromosomes of Western civilization".
