9780674033146: The Ancient Greeks: A Critical History

An esteemed teacher offers a major reassessment of the history of Greece from prehistoric times to the rise of Alexander. This is a work of prodigious scholarship written in grand style.

John Fine surveys the archaeological work that has revealed so much about the civilization of Crete and Mycenaean Greece, and discusses the age of colonization during which Greek colonies were established from the Crimea to the Nile, from the Caucasus to Spain. Analyzing social and economic developments, as well as foreign and inter-city affairs, he assesses the history, culture, and democracy of Athens, and Sparta's institutions and military exploits; recounts the Greeks' relations and then war with the Persian empire; details alliances, struggles, and the varying fortunes of the Greek city-states; and relates the rise of Macedon. Fine treats the Greeks' story in the context of events elsewhere in the eastern Mediterranean. Throughout he indicates the nature of the evidence on which our present knowledge is based, masterfully explaining the problems and pit-falls in interpreting ancient accounts. The Ancient Greeks is a splendid narrative history and a refreshing reinterpretation that will please students of ancient history, and everyone interested in early civilizations.

About the Author:

John V. A. Fine was Emeritus Professor of Classics at Princeton University.

Review:

Fine...conveys the excitement of historical discovery and disputation with the relaxed, assured spontaneity of the lecturer. In his discussion of early Greece, he provides a rich blend of social, political, and cultural history. (Michael Gorra New York Times Book Review)

Teachers of Greek history...will welcome the publication of a new history of Greece, especially one composed by so thoughtful a scholar as John Fine of Princeton. The book, indeed, represents a distillation of more than thirty years' experience not just as an active historian but also as a challenging classroom teacher. (Norman A. Doenges New England Classical Newsletter)

Packed with information and well written. (Robert L. Pounder Classical World)

A comprehensive, thoughtful survey of the history of Greece from prehistoric times through the rise of Macedon in the 4th century, assessing the strength of the evidence and the conclusions of modern scholarship. Although a survey cannot linger in details of analysis, Fine's clear, prismatic style conveys his careful scholarship. (Key Reporter)

The veteran scholar John V. A. Fine excellently surveys Greek history from the arrival of the Greeks, about 2000 B.C., to the death of Philip II (336 B.C.)...We commend him for discussing in detail so many problems of Greek history. (Mortimer Chambers American Historical Review)
