The Classical Greeks
The Golden Age of ancient Greek civilisation lasted from 490 to 336 BC. Never has there been such a multiplication of varied talents and genius within so limited a period. This book concentrates on the individuals in the cultural, social, artisitic and political history of the Classical Greeks, who shaped their own and future civilisations. He asks what gave rise to such outstanding achievement in the cultural, philosphical, scientific and literary spheres.
