Beschreibung

Quality Paperback Book Club, New York, 1997. XV,337p. ills.(B&W photographs and maps). Paperback. 'The brilliance and glory of Greek civilization from the early fifth century B.C. to the rise of Alexander the Great - all masterfully illustrated here by renowned historian Grant through miniature biographies of leading figures, including Themistocles, Aeschylus, Pericles, Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato. The ideals and philosophies that constitute much of the heritage of Western civilization were incubated in the strife-torn Greek city-states during a remarkably brief period of time. Grant argues that it is best to interpret the history of fifth-century Greece 'by accepting that its outstanding deeds and thoughts were produced not by communities but by individuals.' After all, Grant's use of biographical sketches is itself a technique drawn from antiquity, e.g., Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Greeks and Romans. This period saw the defeat of the Persians, the disastrous Peloponnesian Wars, the building of the Parthenon, the trial of Socrates, the founding of the Academy, etc. The reader meets the 'Father of History', Herodotus; the creator of tragedy, Aeschylus; and the founder of medical science, Hippocrates.' (Kirkus, Review 01.10.89). Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 43886

Anbieterinformationen

Scrinium Classical Antiquity, member of the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA - ILAB), stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (conptemporary Greece), and many more subjects. A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity. New books are partly in stock, partly to be ordered from publishers. We are connected to a large number of publishers and distributors, established both in the Netherlands and abroad.
