A combination of easy reference and good writing makes this book ideal for any tourist or student of Greek culture. It covers many facets of Greek history including the conflicts with Persia, conquests by the Romans, the Byzantine age and occupation by the Turks and later the struggle for independence, the turbulent 20th century, up to the recent troubled economic waters of the 21st. It covers the Persian Wars, Athenian Empire, Peloponnesian War, Alexander the Great, the Hellenistic world, Roman Greece and Byzantian and maps cover Alexander's route and the expansion of Greece since 1832 among them. The book questions how it is possible to reconcile the Greek genius for trading with the vigorous Communist and Socialist stance of so many citizens of Greece. With chronology of major events, heads of state since independence and historical gazetteer, pen and ink illustrations and maps. 338pp, paperback.
